Windows 7: Frequent BSOD's after getting to 3.7Ghz

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
Frequent BSOD's after getting to 3.7Ghz

Not long ago I wanted to get my CPU up to 3.7Ghz by O.C. a bit more. However, I kept getting frequent BSOD's with different error messages. So my question is, are the BSOD's coming directly from the unstable overclock or are they coming from something else? I went back to 3.66Ghz and the BSOD's were rare, however I don't think that an O.C. to 3.7Ghz causes instability. I have a great CPU cooler so temps are not an issue.

BSODs are just of the things you'll encounter with an unstable system due to overclocking. So, the BSODs you are encountering is evidence that you still have some tweaking to do in order to get your system to become stable at 3.7 GHz.
