    Hi Members,
    I just want to be sure about my Processor Scores in different benchmarks. I've overclocked my i9 9900K at 5.2Ghz and it runs absolutely perfect and reaches max temp at 75c which is quite good. I've ran different benchmarks specially 3dmark Time Spy and unluckily I'm getting around between 11400-11600 which is a stock score though i've OC'd mine at 5.2Ghz. I've seen many people including Guru3d's i9 9900k review and it crosses 12400 in Time Spy. Any idea why am I getting too low score? Your help matters a lot to me!

    Probably being slowed down by error correction, either by the CPU or ram.
    While the CPU doesnt crash it could be on the limit of its ability.
    If the CPU speed is raised enough it can reduce the max speed of ram that will run stable so the problem could be either/or CPU and ram.

    If it gives better scores when running a bit slower thats fair evidence.
