My bad, should've included that. I'm running Xfce, so it's xfwm4.

From the driver release dates on the NVIDIA website, it looks like I've been using the latest stable version of the driver ever since building the PC, so I don't think it was an driver update issue. In any case, I tried the latest beta version of the driver, and saw the same results.

Out of curiosity, how could overclocking the CPU cause GPU problems? I will first try installing older versions of the driver to see if that helps, although the fact that I saw the same issue in Ubuntu (which has a separately developed driver, even though it is also proprietary and from NVIDIA) means that I'm not too hopeful. I'm sure that I haven't added anything to place additional burden on the PSU. I only have 1 SSD & 1 HDD, no optical drives, only that 1 graphics card, no other PCI/PCIe cards, and no extra fans (other than those that came with the case).

Just tried an ATI Radeon HD 4350. Again, not so fast, but it never crashed.

@Mokubai: According to GPU-Z, the crashes occur at around 39-40 C. The crashes are not a result of a game, so I was able to watch the GPU-Z window at the same time.
