Is the overclock stable? What are you using to determine its slower?

I suggest running prime95 or orthos for a few hours and make sure its stable. After which run 3dMark06 at stock then at your overclock settings and you should see a gain.

Also download everest and do a complete system bench. You'll be able to see a bunch of cpu bench tests as well as memory etc. As you overclock you should gain in these areas.

If your losing performance then I would suspect your PSU isn't supplying enough power for all your components.

Surely a bad PSU would just result in system instability, not reduced performance?

Did you run it on small ffts? blend doesn't stress the processor too much.
