on BIOS overclocking for your mother board your in luck because 4.4 ghz should be reall easy.
Difference between you and OP is that you have one of the best High end air coolers on the market.
and personaly i think 1.44 / 1.45 is Watercooling voltage or Highend
Also 1.44 is way too high for 4.4ghz, like every one said try 1.35, and if you can find your stable voltage for 4.4ghz, start reading into how to use the Offset mode, it will keep your cpu cooler when not running any applications.

I still have one question which temperature is safe for me ? on my i7 2600k the CPU temperature or the core temperature ? I don't know which one to follow
Anyhow this is what I got so far , trying to increase my frequency now
What vcore temperature should I avoid reaching when the Tcase for an i7 2600k is at 72 degrees. CPU temperature is usually lower than the Core temperature... that's why I need to make sure I don't screw up as the cpu will be running at 90+% most of the time.
Most people say 80C is the max temperature, and my chip has done 85C a few times but i've just clocked it down and later improved my cooling.
I would say you can go to 75C on the cores to be safe and set 80+C cores as your danger zone.
