Weird issue you're having there. I mean, if the thing didn't work at all when overclocked, something might've been broken, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
What I would start with is checking all the settings one by one in the BIOS. I don't know about Gigabyte motherboards, hadn't had one in 15 years or so, but my Asus boards (I had a 4790k in a Maximus VII Formula before my 3800x + Crosshair VIII Hero) sometimes set stupid values when left on auto. For instance, on auto my motherboard would set the CPU 3.3v auxiliary voltage to 3.6V for some reason. So what I'd try in your situation is go in the BIOS and don't leave much on auto. Anything you know about, any value that you know what it should be, set it manually. VDDP, VDDG, RAM timings, VCore, VSoC, VPP, VTT, auxiliary voltages, PCH voltage, whatever. You know what it should be, key it in. Pay close attention to the AMD Overclocking, AMD CBS and AMD PBS sections, these could be the culprit (or not, I dunno). Also, if your motherboard has the option, set your DDR boot voltage to just above VDIMM, it may for some reason try to boot RAM at a lower voltage causing errors. I had a similar issue with unstable RAM settings on both this system and my old one.
Other than that, check all the connections on the motherboard and PSU. Fans, RGB lights, PSU cables, everything. Maybe also try plucking out the CMOS battery for a few minutes to completely reset the thing. If everything fails... Well, maybe someone else has a better idea than I do.
Hope you get this sorted out. Cheers.
