Default Crash Running 3DMark05, Why?

My specs: E2160 @ 3.0Ghz (334x9, 1.35V) stock cooling
2GB DDR2 RAM 800Mhz (@ 835Mhz because of needed multiplier; +0.2V) 5-5-5-15
Radeon X1950GT stock clocks/cooling.

Ive been playing Crysis fine. I tried 3DMark05, it was nice to see it run flawlessy (last time i used it it ran at 8fps on my old P4 system). After the three tests, sci-fi, forrest and airship it ran another, it was the airship but it looked very blocky like it was on a very low resolution. It did this for a few seconds at 3fps and then my computer just crashed and restarted itself.

Can I pinpoint what happened exactly? Does this mean by system is unstable at its current state or was that last test some beyond usual and I should not worry about it?

I'd suggest checking you temps to make sure they're not getting too high. Check 'em on both the CPU/GPU. You can use Everest do do this, if you don't already have it.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

unstable overclock is a safe guess.... try Memtest and/or Prime95
