Need help overclocking i5-4670k with this build

I recently built a pc for my girlfriend and I'm trying to overclock it for her, but I'm having trouble doing it. I can't reach the BIOS which is a big problem since that seems like it'd be the easiest route. When I turn on the computer, the monitor is all black and then it shows the windows welcome screen.

Gigabyte Z87-UD3H
CM Hyper 212 Evo
8GB RAM 1600
XFX 6970

Right now I'm using Gigabyte's EasyTune app and I chose the default "extreme" option which was 4400 MHz but when I log on Tera the game always freezes. I'm assuming some of the settings the extremes are set to is too much for the game to handle.

When you turn on the PC, start tapping the del key even though the screen is black. Should get you to bios. Incidentally, your core voltage is way too high. You are probably over heating.
