Intel i5-4690k OC solution

Hey guys!

I am new to this forum and also this is my first attempt at OC-ing a CPU properly.

Sorry in advance if similar thread is already out there, but I need help regarding OC-ing for my particular build. I have seen few threads out there for Haswell OC but honestly I haven't really pulled it off.

With that being said, I've got:

Asus Z97-K mobo
i5-4690k @3.5 GHz (currently clocked @4.4GHz) with Cooler Master Hyper H411R tower air cooler
HyperX Savage 8GB DDR3 @1866MHz CL9 (running X.M.P.)
Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX750 2GB OC (a bottle neck i know, but this gpu has been bought before rest of the build and never upgraded it)
Kingston SSD 480GB
WD Blue HDD 500GB

I do lack experience regarding overclocking, so I tried some ez solutions out there for starters.
Tried with Intel XTU, but it wasn't the happiest solution, pc kept crashing under load.

Since i have OC friendly mobo, i have gone to Asus EZ tuning wizard, and it estimated it can raise clock to 4.4GHz.
Now I am not sure you can call this an OC, since my Boost goes to 4.4GHz, but CPU itself and the core speed is still 3.5GHz.

So I am asking for some opinion and help since I have tried to tweak in bios directly, following some Haswell OC thread, which I am not saying it's bad. It's one of the better ones out there apparently but I lack knowledge and there are too many variables to change in order to get it to high clocks. Also some of the names are different and I held on to the 'lazy' solution by letting my Mobo do the work.

I can share some parameters with you guys, print screen, you name it.

All help would be appreciated
