Default Novice looking for help overclocking an i5

Hey guys, I'm looking to overclock my i5 750 from 2.67 ghz to 3.6 ghz. I have tried doing this by following guides, and while they have worked, I've had problems with programs/games crashing and blue screens, and I don't know which settings are causing the problems. I was wondering if someone could look at my settings and tell me where the problem might be, I think my voltages are probably not right and possibly my memory settings, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to figure this out.

My hardware:
gigabyte p55ud4p motherboard
i5 750 LGA1156
G.SKILL F3-16000CL9D-4GBRH Ripjaws PC3-16000 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-2000 CL9-9-9-27 Core I5 Memory Kit
Hyper 212 cpu cooler

My settings:
CPU Clock Ratio: 20x
QPI Clock Ratio: x32
BCLK Frequency: 180
System Memory Multiplier: x6

Load-Line Calibration: Enabled
CPU Vcore: 1.2150V
QPI/Vtt Voltage: 1.100v
PCH Core: auto
CPU PLL: 1.800v
Dram Voltage: 1.640V

Extreme Memory Profile: Disabled
System Memory Multiplier: 10
Performance Enhance: Standard
DRAM Timing Selectable: Expert
Channel A and B timings: 9-9-9-27

Turbo boost: disabled
CPU cores enabled: all
CPU Enhanced Halt: Disabled
C3/C6 state support: Auto
CPU thermal monitor: Auto
CPU EIST Function: disabled
Bi-Directional PROCHOT: Auto

If anybody can let me know if anything stands out that would be great. Any advice is welcome. Just looking to have a stable overclock at 3.6ghz.
