RTX 2080 Afterburner voltage locked at 1.0930V, Higher Clocks but now lower benchmarking scores?

Using this guide here


I have been able to lock my RTX 2080 voltage at 1.0930V, up from the stock 1.0500V, at least according to afterburner, HWINFO64, and GPUZ sensors.

I'm now able to clock higher, and the card is also maintaining higher clocks during benchmarking. My max peak using a normal overclock was 2100mhz, which would settle at around 2055mhz once the card fully warmed up. Using the locked voltage method the card peaks at 2140mhz and settles around 2100mhz once fully warmed up. The question is

1. Why are all my benchmarking scores now scoring lower, outside of the margin of error, across the board in all benchmarks despite higher clocks?
2. Voltage is supposed to be locked on these cards, so I'm confused as to how afterburner is allowing me to lock the voltage higher than stock. Is this safe?

Note that the cards temps are good, there is no heavy throttling, and I don't appear to be hitting the power limit. Sensors in GPUZ show no Perfcap reason when the card is under full load.

Any ideas as to the drop in scores?
