Just got a new 3770k and have had issues waking up from sleep mode (rebooting twice, sticking at debug 72, then after I power off and back on it resumes)... changing back to 086 to see if it persists.
Since you have a 3770K, overclocking is pretty easy for you - that is an unlocked multiplier chip, so all you have to do is change the CPU multiplier in BIOS, and you will be overclocking.
Keep turbo mode enabled if you don't want the CPU to always be at high power usage. I usually turn it off, because I don't like the CPU frequency to fluctuate.
I would set vcore to 1.3V and set the CPU multiplier to 43. That should give you 4.3GHz as a starting point. If that boots and runs, you can check your temps and run prime95 stability test to make sure its ok. If its too hot, you'll want to lower your vcore setting and see if its happy at a lower vcore. If temps are fine, increase the multiplier to 45 and see if that works. If not, you'll need to increase vcore to 1.35 or 1.4V... That may make your temps too hot though.
If you try that, and it doesn't boot anymore or it crashes and you can't get it to start back up - just reset cmos by pushing the circle arrow on the back of the motherboard for 5 seconds. You can then power it back on, and it will turn back on with default bios settings.
I'd suggest trying some of this, as doing it is the fun part. We can get into further detail, just ask... but it doesn't hurt to get a taste of your first overclock before getting into the details. Keep in mind, we're only changing vcore and CPU multiplier - so this has no effect on any other components like memory or anything.
It around about at 4.7, I might be able to reach 4.8 but I want to sort the ram first - when I increase the BCLK Frq it wont pass and if I decrease the VCore it wont pass.I have no idea how high you set your cpu clock but 1.4V is for about ~4.8GHz.
Temps are good. I see some above ~70*C but you may check that again with realtemp 3.7 or hardware monitor for all cores as ASUS soft is reading package temp so it's always some degrees lower.
So anything below 80*C is good under 100% load in Prime95 or IBT ( both AVX versions that are heating up cpu some more ). During daily usage you probably won't see 65*C+ ( or you are planning to run F@H or BOINC or something like that )
here is my memory guide:
