you should test a little longer.
do a couple hours of prime, use the computer for daily tasks, game on it, etc.

then you will start to get a better idea if its stable.

"Stable" means kind of different to each people it seems....
What I consider "stable" is to pass at least 10+ hours on Prime95 Blend test, 20+ pass of IBT/LinX wAVX instructions with "ALL" ram tested.
Also I test my RAM using HCImemtest and I ran it at least 1 full pass with all RAM tested.
If I have any problem running all these tests, I won't call it stable.

I5 760 stock voltage is 1.15, with 1.27v you can reach 3.8ghz with a better cooler.

Tips for i5 760 overclocking

Disable C1 state in bios
Disable Turbo mode
Disable Vroop
Disable Intel speed step
Disable Intel virtualization tech
set memory profile to X.M.P and speed to 1333mhz
Disable all energy saving features, your board comes with a good guide for overckling, you can use TurboV for quick overcklocking.

When i try to overclock my cpu more than it can it sometimes freezes other times restarts itself what is normal.

right know the only thing limmiting the max overclock is the stock heatsink.Forget that I see you have a H50 maybe you can reach 4ghz with 1.3v.
