go into your bios, turn your voltages up to like 1.75 - 1.90, and turn your multiplier to 57x

there you go, you have a perfect overclock.

alternatively, just bump the voltage down notch by notch until its crashes on stock speeds. run intel burn test to test it, and core temp or speedfan or whatever to check ur temps. dont let them go above 80. once you crash, turn the voltage up to where it didnt crash. then push the multiplier up by 1x. test. if it crashes, turn the voltages up one increment again. test. if it doesnt crash, then turn the multiplier up 1x again. test, if it crashes turn the voltages up one more increment. and keep going until your processor speed is stable at the highest voltage your processor can handle. it needs to be stable on ~20 runs on intel burn test, if it is, then run a prime 95 test overnight. As you turn the voltages up your temps will rise so keep an eye on your voltages.

if it crashes overnight on prime95, then turn your voltages up another increment when you turn your computer back on and leave it. then before bedtime, put prime 95 on again overnight to test it. if it crashes again, repeat. You should be fine during the day though, save the 6+ hour tests for when your asleep. Remember when your temperatures surpass 80, you should back off.

Ok, I have this rig, in a custom rig from Cyberpower PC and I HAD my OC stable until BF3 threw everything in the crapper...

Can anyone give hints, especially if you use Turbo or not?
