I7 6700k performance problems

So I just got my I7 6700k today and I immediately started overclocking. I was able to get up to 4.7 on Cinebench r15 with a score of 850. After that I kept going up was stable till 4.9 when it blew screened. That’s when all the problems started, now no matter what I do I only get a score of up to 700 on Cenebench r15. I’ve spent hours trying to figure out why this is happening. I’ve spent hours trying to figure out why this is happening I’m thinking it could be my motherboard because it was happening on my I5 6600k for a while and then it stopped. I’ve confirmed that it’s not thermal throttling and I am totally lost at this point. And On all stock settings I was able to get 750 score but now I only get 601. All voltages are on auto and it says it’s running at 1.5 V.

1.5V is too much. Try to keep it 1.4V at max for sustained use. Make sure to adjust load line calibration accordingly as you dial in your overclock to prevent voltage dips that cause crashes. Also what motherboard are you using and what are your VRM temps. Just because the CPU isn't throttling doesn't mean your board isn't. I would reset my CMOS battery and restart your overclocking attempts.
