Same reason why you can get a lower SuperPI score on a higher overclock.....because that overclock technically isn't stable and can't perform the calculations to 100% of it's abilities. Probably needs more voltage to the GPU Core, but you can't do that without a volt mod and it wouldn't be worth it on that card IMO.

It's the same thing with me. I had my 6200 PCI-e at 700/719 from 350/550. I started scoring worse. I'd love to find a voltmod for that card because if I can get it that high stable muhahaha! Not very likely however.
