How long did you run Intel Burn Test? I don't think you ran it long enough. As for why it does this, When your overclocking the cpu it also overclocks other parts of the system depending on your hardware setup. So if any of the subsystems are running slightly on edge it can cause problems.
Normally when your overclocking the cpu you adjust the bus speed of the cpu. But as you increase the cpu bus it also effects the memory bus and the pci bus. Normally you can control the memory bus speed with a divider. The pci bus is slightly different. By default the system will try to maintain the pci bus at a specific speed. On newer systems it's called the pci-e bus and the system tries to keep the speed at 100 MHz. But this speed can vary a little low or high depending on the exact cpu bus speed you selected. My system gets unstable when the pci-e is below 100. And it runs best with it set to 106. But all systems are different, you'll have to find what works best for you.
