i7 4790k Unstable Overclock! [REPOST]

Hey Guys,

A few days ago I turned on the PC and immediately it crashed. Blue screen-->Bios reset to default. I'm assuming it was an overclocking problem so I restored my pre-crash BIOS profile and synced all cores one notch lower. I also went to all modified voltages and etc and turned those down a tad bit as well. If you've read this far you've probably realized I have no idea what I'm doing . I'm purely going off youtube videos with system specs similar to mine. Anyways, any help would be awesome.

My specs:

I7 4790K @4.3 (Originally 4.4)
GTX 980 TI
DDR3-1600 4X4 16GB
CX 600
Cooler Master Hyper 212

Any input would be amazing. The tutorial I was following for my initial BIOS mod is:

Set Core to 44 and Multi to 42

Voltages Manual, you leave things on Auto for the most part, no need to to extreme settings for 4.4

Core Voltage at 4.4= 1.150- 1.165
Cache at 4.2 = 1.150-1.165

add + 0.05v for every step in Ghz.

Should work, it works for my chip, however could be different for your CPU
