Hello.
Basically - after I OC'd my i7 860 to 3,8Ghz, (my first overclock btw) which I did while following this guide by Tech YES City:

Now - the 1st thing I noticed after following the guide as best as I could is that my core voltage was different. While stress testing, his was a stable 1.376V, while mine was only 1.344V, rarely going up to 1.352V(?), and when it went up, my CPU clock and usage went down.

Right. So I follow the guide again, and carry out the stress test. At first, I didnt see anything wrong. Then came the Cinebench part - I got a score TWO TIMES lower than the one in the tutorial.
Later I realized that there is a pattern, (https://ibb.co/thQBWj5) and after searching for answers to no avail, I'm writing this post.

My motherboard is an ASUS P7H55. My settings are the same as in the tutorial.
If you find an explanation and a fix for this (so that I can get my beloved 600 points in Cinebench and no throttling) please explain this as simply as you can - I'm not really... expierienced in overclocking.
Oh, and if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer.
Thanks :>
