It may take longer but believe me if your OC is not 100% stable it may crash in Battlefield 3, it may take a while to happen but it will
I used to use more than one OC profile for my games but then I found out if an OC crash in one game it will end up crashing in the other.
Maybe your card artifact to death in BF3 but you don't notice it, as not all artifacts are noticeable to your eyes, especially the fast ones.
From now on I always use 100% stable OC as the difference doesn't worth the risk between the bench OC and max stable OC.
I don't want to risk losing a progress of my gameplay because the stupid card crashed suddenly after hours of playing
