What psu do you have?

How much voltage are you applying? What are your temps?

You need to provide some more info for help. It almost sounds like you need to apply more voltage, but with no info it's very difficult to just guess.

Are you sure the overclock settings are why the system is crashing? I ask because the turbo boost for that cpu is 3.9 so it should not crash running at 3.6 unless you manually set a very low voltage. Personally, given what I know, I'd restore everything to default and stress the system with factory settings to confirm it is stable at factory defaults before moving forward.
