GTX 760 not using its full effective memory clock

Hey. I recently bought a GTX 760 to replace my old onboard graphics in gaming and have noticed something weird. When playing games I use precision x to monitor temperatures and graphics card stuff in the top left of my screen. I have noticed that no matter the game I play (anything from minecraft to arma 3) that my memory clock stays at 3005 mhz. The effective memory clock for this card should be 6008. Why isnt it ever reaching the full clock?

My system is an HP P7-1414 that is all stock except for a power supply and graphics card.

Stock system:

Graphics card:

Power supply:
