Need MSI Z87-GD65 With 4770K Overclocking Help

I'm new to the overclocking world and understand the basics but need some help with my specific bios. As stated in the title I'm using a MSI Z87-GD65 motherboard with a 4770K and an H100i as the cooler. I'm pretty sure my problem is there's a setting(s) that I am supposed to be changing but I'm not. I'm looking for some general settings that should always be changed when overclocking. CPU core voltage and the multiplier will of course be a bit different for everyone but what else do I need? When I manually set my core voltage through the bios does it stop it from automatically changing or is that another setting? I also know to change the Vdroop to stay stable but I can't find that setting in the bios.

Also, should I get my CPU stable and then OC my ram and GPU or the other way around? Lastly, what is a good temp to "max out" at with very little risk for the 4770K? I've heard around 80-85 is good. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    Can start with it at stock, jot down the settings, then OC with the OC genie and see what it changes, that can give you a baseling as far as what 'might' be needed, whatever Genie does (if stable) you can then change and say try with lower voltages or settings and work from there
