Ok I recommend getting the latest bios version of that board (to make sure you have the latest updates and fixes)

I found this bios update for the nForce750i SLI FTW, that should be your board

Then when you overclock make sure you change your ram divider or your ram frequency so it will run slower because when you overclock using the fsb it overclocks the ram as well and that could create the instability you're getting...
Also make sure that the ram timings and voltage is set to the recommended settings of the ram manufacturer before you actually start overlclocking...

If you keep getting instability try raising the cpu and northbridge voltages by a little...also try raising the pcie clock by a little, it some times help reach stability when overclocking...
