Search in yahoo or google for reviews on your mobo. Read up. It's what i'm doing right now for my rig. The forum here is sometimes useless, when u have questions!

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

1- Follow the binoyski's advice and use Google to learn the basic things and terms of overclocking.
2- You will find a lot of settings with pretty similar components that yours, those will never be stable for your too.
3- You will be limited for the RAM, more with 1333MHZ and CL9 isn't a good RAM.

Come back here for specific help :)

Looks good but, Is it stable? What temps are you getting on load?

okay well temps for the i5 750 according to intel is like 76C so you hit 50C in max load your safe. im guessing you at least ran p95 for about an 1hr?

you can go higher if your temps are that good as of now .... you should be able to get it to 3.5 on air .. watch the temps !!!
