Hackintosh crashes on STABLE overclock, works at stock speed

Heres the deal:

I have run hackintosh 10.7 on my machine for months. I installed Win7 to use Prime95 and CoreTemp while overclocking. I now have a stable overclock at 4GHz, great temps thanks to liquid cooling, but now Lion crashes instantly upon booting.

Why will mac no longer run with this stable overclock?

MSI 7519 (p43 Neo)
C2D e7500 2.93GHz, running at 4GHz
8GB DDR2 800
Geforce 9800GT 512MB

Corrupted data?

It's not stable?

Mac isn't strong enough to handle the gforces meant only for more manly operating systems?

Maybe because it's not 100% stable. Mac OS is entirely different from Windows. Try lowering your OC.

It's your DSDT it doesn't support your OC correctly. I'd hit up insanelymac or tonymacx86 to see if they can help you edit it.

I have no issues oc'ing and running OSX, see sig.
