Is it possible to achieve higher scores with 3dmark and fx-8350?

Hey all this may sound dumb but my processor seems to bottleneck the system on benchmarks, I have it overclocked but wondered if I've missed a trick?
The overclock has a marginal increase on the scores from stock but I can't believe it's just that bad a processor when intel destroy these benchmarks!!!
Hope someone can help?

Post up your score or the futuremark link. sad to say Intel pretty much destroys AMD these days. Such is the way of processors, a few years ago AMD was king. Now Intel is.

But for many of the benchmarks ram timings and frequency play such a huge part.

Yh I guessed they might be destroying us amd boys but seems unfair!
Still I'm gonna give up now as I have the dodgey nvidia drivers and pop goes the gfx VRM 😞 I'm now without my cards so it's pointless atm.
Ill be sure to update though when I can get a proper test and link it.

Darn dude, is that driver really killing hardware I have seen three threads here on the forum now that folks seem to have been affected.
