Help me overclock with success plz

I have tried overclocking a few times

I have

Intel i7 extereme 980
24gb RAM kingston hyperx 1600
Gigbyte x58-ud7
850watt psu

I have tried overclocking by changing the bclk to 160 which changes the memory from 1333 to 1600 and changes the cpu from 3.33 to 4.0 but whenever i run a bench test or somthing that uses cpu to the extreme my pc shutsdown.

I have always had problems when i try to overclock this machine and have just left it running standard but i have started seeing machines overclocked out of the box recently i want some..
