Personally from the extensive research i've done and from hours of my own experience... going over 4.4ghz with a 3570k takes a lot of time to find that sweet spot unless you got a Golden Chip or Water Cooling but its very possible on air (to get 4.6ghz. In fact tonight i am going back to 4.6ghz, i was there before but i found a tad instability at that clock on my 3570k. I use a EVO 212+ CPU Cooler with push/pull air < push/pull means two fans on the cpu heatsink..one fan sucking in the cool air into the heatsink and back fan sucking the hot air out to the PC case back fan. It helps a little bit with keeping the CPU cooler than rather only having one 120mm cpu fan.
I wish i could help you more but simply cannot because i have a Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 motherboard and it's simply too hard to try and give you advice when you have a completely different mobo. Each mobo from various manufacturers all have their own niche to get a solid OC. My best advice is to google this..as in my case i googled "asrock z77 Extreme 4 3570K overclock" and i guarantee you will find many other threads from various forums from the google results of searching exactly what i did above and i suggest you find threads that have your exact mobo and cpu for overclocking. This is what i did and i found around 10 excellent threads via google that are specfically related to my exact mobo and cpu overclocking.
I did notice from your pictures though that you do not have a few things disabled that i noticed which should be no matter what mobo brand you have. You should have this configured below...granted your mobo does not exactly say exact what my mobo says for the options below but i noticed you had some of these enabled which should be disabled.
This is what i have below...
Enhanced Halt State (C1E): Enabled
CPU C3 State Support: Disabled (always keep disabled)
CPU C6 State Support: Disabled (always keep disabled)
Package C State Support: Disabled (always keep disabled)
Internal PLL Overvoltage: Disabled (I find this crucial to disabled for OC)
Speed Spectrum: Disabled (can be turned on or off)
Speed Step: Disabled (can be turned on or off but i turn back on after i find sweet OC spot)
I wont go any further than this because you have an entirely different mobo than I but i am sure more computer savvy guys in here with great experience can help you further. I personally have a decent amount of knowledge in OC'n but i tend to refrain from helping others that do not have the same or close to the same hardware as i do...to me its like comparing apples and oranges because of how drastically different mobo's have an affect on overclocking the same cpu you and i may have.
