need help with overclocking my cpu

Hello, as the title says am looking to overclock both my cpu and my gpu to boost my gaming performance as am not happy with what i get in most games and i dont know why but with my setup i should be getting good results unless something is wrong with my setup,

Here is my full specs,
sli gtx 980ti gigabyte windforce (Boost: 1241 MHz / Base: 1152 MHz) & evga SC ( not overclocked ) (Base Clock: 1102 MHz / Boost Clock: 1190 MHz )
i7 3960x not overclocked
asus rampage iv latest bios
4x8gb 2400mhz ram corsair platinum
Evga Supernova 1500
custom cooling for cpu
i game on Asus rog swift gsync 144hz

I game on sony 4k tv XBR-65X900A,

am new to overclocking i only done it once with cpu but through the bios profiles so i dont know if its normal for the decrease of the memory freq from 2400 to 1333 or not,

i also would like to push my cards into overclocking if possible to see increase in my gaming performance,

if you want more information regarding anything please let me know i did some 3dmark also to see the score..

All right

I never used G-Sync so I don't know if that could be affecting your scores, you could try disabling it for the benchmark.

still gpu1 max power it takes not more than 65% and temp max was 70c on +130mhz on core and it still doesnt exceed 1266mhz yet 3dmark shows its overclocked and all,

in the other hand the 2nd card max power 97% & temp max was 85c & max core was 1253 mhz yet this one i did not touch or overclocked its just sc from evga with 1102mhz base and 1190 boost

All right you got the onscreen display on !

GPU 1 is not running properly as the mem clock is only showing 400MHz, restart your pc and see if that gets it running properly. You do have sli enabled correct?

still same, i did reset everything and removed the overclock and took screen shot and all is fine but dont know why overclock doesnt take any effect or having memory problems :S57802

That looks better, double what the memory is showing in GPU-Z and you have 3500MHz. One thing I noticed in the onscreen display is you have a 6 core cpu but only 4 cores showing.

Try running the benchmark again and see if it's any better.

that screenshot after i reset everything back to default and removed the overclock and i have 6 core cpu but i only marked first 4 on the osd but that is not the issue, the issue now when i overclock i get fps drop because of the memory :S
