The problem with any Over-Clocking is that it stresses the hardware and creates a lot of heat.
So whether the CPU, GPU, or memory OC can create issues which cause damage which in turn
can cause performance problems which may not be reversible with any software means.

OC being fine for a year just means it has had a year to damage components sort of like a tire
on a car wearing. The tire can be fine for a long time however eventually it starts to affect the
performance of the car and the only solution is to replace the tire.

This whole issue sure seems like a hardware problem. Try all the software methods you can and
if not help then you will need to start troubleshooting the hardware.
