I decided to start overclocking my 3770K again since a new game is very cpu limited and I'm not getting a stable 120 fps ( BL P-S ).

I've never really overclocked before aside from some minor overclocking to 4.2Ghz when I was bored, but nothing permanent. I never needed the performance.

From what I've heard 4.4 Ghz 1.2V needs to be quite doable.

Well, frankly, not for me. It needs to be about 1.24V to be able to boot in the first place.

Like, I tried this guy's advice.

Manually set Vcore to 1.155V.
Completely locks up my pc, can't even get into the bios.
Bumping this to 1.26V and I was once again fine.

I need some advice / insight on this matter, does my 3770K plain suck at overclocking?
Is my UP7 somewhat broken?
