Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Include PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition.

Look in Reliability History for error codes, etc. that correspond with the lock ups.

did you try to run it on 2 ram modules in dual channel also what that white plastic cover with foam is use to and from picture seams you run open case then get cpu back to defautl speed and slowly overclock until it lock you could also use hwinfo to find more details on temp fan speed and voltages in system .
