Check out the Intel OC Guide in my sig, that should give you some direction. Welcome to the Dark Side.

Ok into bios
goto mb intelligent tweaker menu
set cpu host clock control to enabled - this will open the cpu host freq setting below it
the cpu host freq is the clock speed of your cpu devided by your multiplyer.
change this up a bit at a time then save and reboot and start windows to check for stability.
performance enhance to standard
robust graphics booster to auto
pci-e to 100mhz
cia.2 to disabled
high speed dram dll settings to option 1

As you go higher with your clock speeds you may well have to change your voltages to your cpu etc...
The settings for this are fairly simple to use and self explantatory. If you get to an overclock that fails to post or cuts out in windows then restart and up the voltage to the cpu, fsb and (g)mch (northbridge) a little.

I think on mine i always ran the northbridge +.1v and the fsb +.1v on any overclock just for stabilty.

Also goto advanced bios features from the main menu
disable :
no exeecute memory protect
cpu enhanced halt
cpu thermal moniter
cpu eist function
and turn full screen logo off so you can see the system post properly

That should get you started.

Sorry its a bit vague but i havent got my ds3l set up at the moment and wrote this from memory and from looking at the bios menus in the motherboard manual. You should get good results, i had my q6600 in my p35-ds3l up to 3.6ghz and the voltages are very stable on that board.
Good luck

If you use all 4 memory slots on the board dont expect a very good OC...

They seem to give you the middle finger when you try it

Also check that the motherboard is running your ram at the right voltages.
Im not sure what your ram should run at but it will say on the side of the sticks.
You can goto the pc health menu and see what it has your ram running at then if it is lower than stock settings go Into the advanced tweaking menu where you can then up them in .1v increments to the voltage they should be at.

Also ram timings can be changed by pressing Alt and f1 together or possibly (Ctrl and f1) when you first enter the bios, this will open up all the extra timing settings in your advanced tweaking menu where you can tighten them up if they are running at higher latencies than they should be.

try with just one stick of ram then just the other.
Also try using the other two ram slots
sometimes boards can be picky about ram and you just need to swap them around a bit.

Just a thought, is the ram multi set to auto? If it is it can sometimes put stupid clock speeds on the ram. Try setting the ram speed in mhz manually.

The vdroop on the DS3L is pretty significant. When I set my vcore to 1.45v, CPU-Z tells me it's only 1.4v. Unfortunately, this may not be the problem in your case. What's your multiplier and FSB set to? Are you sure you've only increased it by 1MHz and not 1GHz?
