Okey, trying to get a backup cpu so I can delid and try to push it further.
Looking at the Firestrike physics score and scores in general, I think your scores are fine considering how you and I have both OC'd to similar clocks.
As far as those with much higher scores go, I'm tempted to say that either:
1: They've heavily OC'd the GPU and memory and to avoid hitting the power-limit they've modded the card (something you'd have to do but would likely void your warranty)
2: They've heavily OC'd the card and have been lucky enough not to have Firestrike cause the Power-Limit to be reached. A similar thing happened to me when I had my Galax 970 at 1490 core, where Firestrike worked perfectly but any intense sessions of Battlefield 4 and War Thunder caused it to max-out its power-limit numerous times, resulting in fairly regular performance drops.
or 3: They're running i7 processors where, as I mentioned before, the hyper-threading really gives the final score a decent boost through its far higher scores in the physics test.
