Confused on Overclocking!

Hi all!

I have recently bought the Intel I7 4770k with a MSI Z87-G43 mobo. Its currently running at the stock 3.5GHz and when needed boosts itself up to 3.9.
I have fitted a coolermaster 212 evo so max temps around 55C. I am wanting to overclock it to 4.4 if possible but am confused how to do so!

I have a program which allows me to alter CPU stuff, the same settings are in the BIOS. It has so many buttons and I don't want to fry my CPU, here are a few screenshots of what I have to work with!

What do I need to change for it to run correctly at 4.4?
Many thanks!

    First, do not use MSI Command Center to make changes for OC'ing. The interface is just too confusing with far too many settings. I recommend using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, which is much simpler.

    Here is a thread which helped me out a lot with specific recommendations: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1722630/intel-god-quick-dirty-guide-4ghz-haswell.html
