Its most likely down to the fact that your CPU doesn't want to OC that far without a voltage increase.

You were quite lucky to get into the bios again, otherwise you would have to reset your CMOS using the jumper on your motherboard.

What motherboard have you got? If you are thinking of overclocking, it might be worth looking into something with a few more OC options
