It's quite possible. You can provide a chip enough voltage headroom to meet spike requirements for Cinebench without providing it enough to sustain optimal performance over a longer period of time. In a game, for instance. That's generally why many overclockers choose to use stress testing which pushes the chip beyond a nominal average day's work. This ensures that a chip which can meet those demands will thus be more than capable of handling lesser workloads.
Forgive my assumption, but I'd wager that as your last build was a 2500k purchased somewhere nearer its release point, you've probably not had to mess about with too many overclocks. Many of us change builds like we change socks and have overclocked dozens of chips on dozens of motherboards. What has you so exuberantly derisive is a very real thing (and not uncommon with Offset OC's). What's the harm in pressing the '+' key a few times and finding out?
