Are you overheating? Get HWMonitor and check your temps, you may be throttling.
Yeah, you are running too hot there. The 955 should be kept below 62C, since you are running at 68C and it is down clocked you should check your heatsink, make sure its not clogged with dust and that the fan is still spinning.
