Computer Freeze or Crash after 5min in window, safe mode and even BIOS

My window start freezing, crashing or doesn't show anything on screen after I turn on the power. It happen randomly in window, safe mode and BIOS. It said "overclock failed" and I have to reset the system, but I don't remember ever overclocking it and I already reset the CMOS. This problem occur randomly and my computer DOES function properly in Windows once I passed the freezing, crashing or no screen random start-ups disasters. Seems turning on the computer is the only issue here. I am hoping someone can point me to the source of this problem. What control a computer start-up?

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 WS
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
RAM: Corsair XMS3 16GB
Power: Corsair TX850W
Hard Drive: Western Digital Cavier Black 1TB SATA3 6GB/s
Video Card: ATI FirePro V4800

Could be a temperature problem. Get into the bios & quickly check the temperatures.

The temperature is fine, a BSOD caused it. Right now, I reset the CMOS by removing the CMOS battery and it haven't crash for an hour so far, but I am keeping my finger crossed.

It could have been that 'overclock' then. Hope it keeps going.

Check that your memory sticks are properly seated. You may need to release them and then reseat.
