Gigabyte ep43-ud3l OC Q6600 HELP?

Hey guys, I had a question I've recently started to get into OCin to try to squeeze the juice finally out of my q6600 Rev G0 with Gigabyte ep43-ud3l.

I'm running on a Antec Basiq 550w PS and G. Skill 4gb DDR3 1600 Ripjaw but recently just ordered Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600 8gb for under $50 at newegg! So I'm hoping to take my OC further to maybe 3.4-3.6ghz. Everything is stable at 3.0ghz after running IBT and my memory is running at 1333mhz in Bios and current voltage is at 1.375v in CPU-z. My graphics card I have is a Radeon HD 5750 1gb.

So finally my question.....anytime I OC it up past 3.0ghz on the current setup sometimes it'll boot but crash blue screen once I hit windows 7. Anyone can help me out?

Comp just running World of warcraft.

After running IBT temps 5 times and playing World of warcraft for awhile.

I didn't know how to take a SS of CPU-z so I copy and pasted the specs from it here.
