Ryzen Overclock Causing Windows to Crash?

CPUs and Overclocking - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Curious OC problem. I'm running a 1700 with default cooler and the ASRock Taichi mobo, Samsung 960 evo and GTX 1080 TI.

Currently I have the 1700 OC'd to 3.8ghz at 1.37 voltage. Everything seems fine (played games for 2 hours, no instability).

I've been following this guide to OCing:

What I find strange is when I start playing with the custom settings, Windows refuses to boot. I get a an error saying "Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing, or corrupt: 0xC00000e9 – File Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe."

At first I thought it was a genuine OS issue and did a repair, but it keeps coming up anytime I play at higher clockspeeds. If I change the bios settings it is totally fine.

Why would CPU overclocking trick Windows into a kernel failure?
