I am an Unholy DK and I am only pulling 22-23k with an ilvl of 379. I know my gear isn't the best, but I am trying to get what I can from LFR and such.
My Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/illidan/Devilspider/simple
My priority: Diseases, DT, DnD, SS and i alternate between SS and DC and I use FS to refresh.
I am not really sure how to go about improving my DPS, but I love Unholy(It's a pet spec and I love pet specs and necromancer themes.) I just need some correcting on my gear and priority.

You may want to look at woohaa
's Unholy Dps Guide
, which covers rotation, stat priorities, and talents.

woohaa's guide, while good, is from 4.2.2 - so a bit outdated. Check EJ
if you have the time.
Some copypasted stuff in case you're lazy:
Standard Stat Priority
Strength > Hit to Cap > Haste > Crit > Mastery > Expertise to Cap > Agility
Adjusted Stat Priority for Gurthalak Owners
Strength > Hit to Cap > Haste > Mastery >= Crit > Expertise to Cap > Agility
Single Target Priority
> Dark Transformation
> Death and Decay/Scourge Strike (UU or Death Runes are up)
> Festering Strike (BB and FF are up)
> Death Coil (Sudden Doom, high RP)
> Death and Decay/Scourge Strike
> Festering Strike
> Horn of Winter
And then there's generic dps things like synchronizing your cooldowns with eachother/raidbuffs/boss buffs, standing behind the boss, and using pve gear(Idk if that's your pve set, if it's not, forget this part)
Also, 23k with 379 ilvl is far from terrible - its actually pretty damn good for most people.
