Core i5 overclocking confusion

I've tried to read up on overclocking, but I've only succeeded in confusing myself. First modern overclock.

What I have:
- Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3P
- Core i5 750
- Mushkin DDR3 1600 7-9-7-24

What I want to do:
- Overclock to a conservative 3.0Ghz
- NOT overclock the memory, but keep it at the rated specs
- Keep the i5 Turbo Boost working

I change BCLK to 150, but that also seems to want to mess with my memory settings.

Any advise on how to do this?

Thanks,
mike.

    Go to MB Intelligent

    Advance setting

    CPU Clock Ratio (set it to 20x)
    Advanced CPU Feature
    Turn off Enhanced Halt (C1E) to Disabled
    Intel Turbo Boost Tech to Disabled
    CPU EIST Function to Disabled

    Go back to Advance Setting

    QPI Clock Ratio (Setting it to x32)
    Base Clock (BCLK) Control to Enabled
    BCLK Frequency (MHZ) 130-185 (You can choose a number between 130-185) what you want is 156
    System memory Multiplier (SPD at 8.0) Best to little lower

    Advance CPU Core Feature

    Performance Enhance

    Advance Voltage Setting

    Load-line Calibration (to Enabled)

    and save. Do this in order.

    I think you missed the part where I said I would like to oveclock with Turbo still enabled
