ok, watch your language please. Thanks.

No need to swear here.

Is there possibly any reason why CCC resets itself? Maybe the card is overheating?

I don't think the actual driver is to blame, so the Omega drivers won't make a difference. It's the interface that likely gives you trouble (or maybe a hardware issue that triggers the events).

Try atitool for overclocking the card.
