Overclocking 2500K

So I'm not sure if I've run into a wall or I'm doing something wrong...but I can't get my 2500K past the 44x multiplier. I boot to windows fine at 44x with just 1.3vcore. But if I try 45x+ it will not even get to the loading windows screen. Just leaves me at a screen with a blinking cursor after my MB BIOS screen. I tried voltages all the way up to 1.48 and still would not boot up.

Did I just hit a wall with my chip or is there something I'm doing wrong? Is there some other settings I should be changing?

    From most of the reviews I have read, the 2500k seems to hit 4.3 or 4.4 with the 2 minute overclock. The 2600k is getting 4.6 - 4.7 on almost every review. Adjusting BCLK and other settings are your next step.
