I built my old man a new PC after 5+ years of his single core and I wanted to do a modest 3.2ghz overclock for world of warcraft (just to keep frames up) but I am having a few problems.

i5-750 2.67ghz
Corsair TX750w
G.SKILL 2x2GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS
GTS 250 1GB

Screenshots (I reset to default after toying around)

The few issues I have is firstly when I put the ram into dual-channel it screws everything up. My manual shows the ram slots like this 2-1-3-4 so I put the ram in 1-4 (originally had it in 2-1). The issue I had was only 2GB of 4GB was noticed in Windows after that. Also when I turned the PC off it would shut down but fans would keep going. I put them back into 2-1 and all 4GB is noticed and everything works fine.
The other issue is I want to overclock to 3.2ghz but I want the memory to stay @ 1600 or under just to avoid issues. I never noticed a good enough gain to warrant overclocking memory and the board all ready is pushing the voltage past the 1.5v on the package.

So my question is what exactly do I do here to achieve what I need done? Is there a good guide to explain the new socket setup? I am use to the 939/775/AM2 setups and this new blck is down right confusing me. Let me know if there is anything I can do/take a picture of to help out.
