CPU overclock can make graphics card fail ?

A simple question, can produce a CPU overclock failures with my graphics card ?

I'm trying to find stability for a slight overclock to my processor, and today just after starting the computer I opened google chrome, and I had a system freeze, for about 10 seconds, and then the screen went black and the screen appeared again with the system running.

ID EVENT 14 - The description of event 14 is not found on the origin nvlddmkm
and after few seconds 2x ID EVENT 4101 - nvlddmkm stopped working and has recovered

So it can be related to the CPU overclock, cuz im testing it so im not sure its 100% stable, or it can be related to the graphic card ? Before CPU didnt happaned, but this graphic its new, I has 1 week, so I dont know what can be

▐► CPU: Intel Core i7-10700K @ 5,1 GHz
▐► GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
▐► MB: MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus
▐► RAM: 16GB G.Skill TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16
▐► SSD: 500GB M.2 NVMe WD Black SN750
▐► PSU: Corsair RM750X V2

It can, but it's difficult to say without more information. You might find this read worthwhile.

The northbridge plays an important part in how far a computer can be overclocked, as its frequency is commonly used as a baseline for the CPU to establish its own operating frequency. This chip typically gets hotter as processor speed becomes faster, requiring more cooling. There is a limit to CPU overclocking, as digital circuits are limited by physical factors such as rise, fall, delay and storage times of the transistors, current gain bandwidth product, parasitic capacitance, and propagation delay, which increases with (among other factors) operating temperature; consequently most overclocking applications have software-imposed limits on the multiplier and external clock setting. Additionally, heat is a major limiting factor, as higher voltages are needed to properly activate field effect transistors inside CPUs and this higher voltage produces larger amounts of heat, requiring greater thermal solutions on the die.
Most people overclock their north bridge when they overclock the CPU.

It's a bit late as you only have a week and I just found this thread, but the way to troubleshoot that would be to drop your overclock and bench the graphics card. If it runs and is stable like that, it's the overclock. If it's not stable, it's the graphics card.
