Default Windows Experience Crashes with GPU Overclock

I can get 10 minutes of Kombustor stability at maximum resolution with my GPU set at Core 900 and Memory 1200 (using Afterburner). However, if I run anything more than an EXTREMELY mild overclock (like 760 and 1010, which are each only 10 over stock!) Windows Experience will not finish, saying that it was unable to measure my video playback.

If my goal is stability, should even something as minor as Windows Experience be considered?

And I just successfully ran three loops of 3dMark.

Windows experience hardly matters and an error message from it is hardly a stability issue. I'd just ignore it as long as you are stable everywhere else.

But I was SOOOOOO close to having across the board 7.9s; it would have made such an awesome screenshot!
