Fx8120 overclocking issue

i have done several manual OC settings for my system and I have been able to successfully oc my cpu from the default 3.1ghz to 4.6ghz but what i dont understand I was using 3dmark11 as my benchmark program. and my conclusion is my default settings of 3.1ghz 1.28v nb frequency 2.2mhz at 1.22v 15.5 multiplier 3dmark11 showed performance rating of P-4242.
then I OC to 4.6ghz 1.55v nb freq 2.6mhz 1.3v and the performance rating was only 4372 at best. i tried other settings with voltage and the multipliers but my performance ratings dropped dramaticly. i tried overclocking my memory but when i tried it was unstable n kept bsod . so my memory is still at stock setpoints. and i havent touched my video card settings. can someone help me in right direction?
