I've been trying to OC my Intel 4770k and every time I try to bump up the Clock Speed even to a modest 4.1Ghz I get a BSOD with the error CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. I have attempted to overvolt the CPU up to 1.26V and continue to get the same error.

My System:
Asus Maximus VI gene
Intel i7-4770k
Gigabyte Windforce GTX 770
Kingston SSDNow 120GB boot drive
Western Digital Blue 1TB Storage Drive
Rosewill Hive 750W Power Supply
Zalman LQ310 CPU Cooler

Should I continue to try to push the Voltage on the CPU to try to get it stable or did I just get a bad draw on my CPU?
