Once you get the 20 minute fail your wall bump it up a notch and then run it for 4 hours. If you have any questions please ask and let us know how it goes.
Not a fan of offset at all.
So here's what I'd recommend.
Go in to BIOS.
revert everything to stock
Put memory on "XMP Profile 1" (if you have that setting) OR change memory settings (timing, speed, voltage) to it's rated settings manually.
Turn off all the voltage saving features (they look like "C1E, C3, C6 Etc..") Also disable turbo boost features.
Find the vcore of a 3770k at stock speeds. Raise the multiplier by 1.
Use intel burn test for 5 runs at normal.
If you pass, raise multiplier by 1. If you fail, raise vcore by .01
Do this till' you reach your happy place.
Then, do 15 runs of IBT at the difficulty that uses all your RAM
