New at OCing

Hi, I am new at overclocking but I decided to try it. I got an NVIDIA GeForce Dual-GTX 1060 6GB OC from Asus, and have managed to overclock it as much as I can. The temperature is under 70 degrees at all time, and yes I have benchmarked it with 3Dmark TIme spy benchmark. I haven't touched the voltage bar (I am using GPU Tweak 2) and when I do the benchmark won't run so I keep it untouched. Any tips to get it more overclocked?

I mostly play Kingdom come deliverance and Dishonored 2. I can run KCD stable and good, but Dishonored has started to get random crashes/freezes I do not know it is because of the overclocking. Help.

And the last thing. I have been overclocking my CPU as well, an i3-8350k, with the OC Genie 4 but the benchmark says it still has 4000 MHz while the Genie says it keeps the clock running at 4200 MHz. What is the solution to this and what have I done wrong?

Thanks for any replies!
You are supposed to smear the cooling paste behind the CPU on the pins, right?

I have tried to play different games and such, no problems, and my gpu is stable as it can be. I think it is memory fault, I have turned off Xmp and it worked again. Thanks for the help.

I don't know if I should start a new thread, but how can I get more performance out of the GPU or if it is even possible?

Yes you should start a thread in the Nvidia section, but there are many threads to read first, all recent Nvidia cards use the same software and overclock similar, the new MSI Afterburner and EVGA precision, now has auto tuning available for Pascal cards as well as Turing, setting a good fan curve is essential as heat will auto downclock your GPU
