I'm not looking for some ungodly OC, I just would like 800/1600/1950. Is it possible my motherboard is causing this or I have a bad card?
No your motherboard seems fine and so does your GPU. If your card can run Crysis, it is certainly not completely unstable. BUt even one error in OCCT makes your overclock unstable (technically that is). It is possible and even probable that nothing you do will recreate OCCT's harsh testing conditions, but nevertheless, even 1 error means the overclock is not fully stable. No matter how many runs of Crysis you can run.
Here's an analogy. Let's say you have a theory. It's very good. Actually, it applies to everything you know. But then suddenly, you figure out an exception. One single, tiny exception. Your theory is invalidated.
