I haven't seen that many people reach 2600mhz stable on the NB, without having exotic cooling. You are most likely hitting a thermal wall.
Do you have a power usage meter? My system will pull over 400 watts from the wall with all eight cores loaded at 4.7Ghz (1.475 vcore) and my temperatures reach 65 deg. C. with a Corsair H100. I leave my system at 4.0Ghz on stock vid of 1.35 due to thermal issues. Apparently BD and PD run better when the NB is half the speed of your core speed anyhow.
