Nvidia Cards freeze while playing games like Crysis 3

Issue: I have an Nvidia gtx480 which often use to freeze and the computer needs to be restarted.
What i did : I am using Zotac Nvidia GTX 480 which use to freeze while playing crysis 3 and it use to happen with crysis 2 as well. All the settings were set to very high and the game was running smoothy without any lag meaning the card had enough power to support the high settings of the game. The fan use to make an awful amount of noise when playing the game too. I overclocked it but no go.
Resolution : Underclocked the video card with the application provided by the graphics card vendor zotac.
