My experience is this generally indicates hardware problems. Memory
going bad is most common, or soemthing else that causes memory

I'm no overclocking expert, but after 2 years of overclocking a
processor I think it's not strange to get troubles. Overclocking
basically always reduces the expected lifetime. Maybe removing the
overclocking of your CPU or even underclocking it, may solve your
problems. In other words: I don't think it's a NetBSD problem.
