Are my 3DMark Firestrike scores in a good place with an Overclocked 1070 and i5 4690k...

I have a EVGA SC GTX 1070 and an i5 4690k both Overclocked, GPU OC is the following http://prntscr.com/cusqk0 , any increase to my memory would have made it unstable on the bases of a 3DMark Stability stresstest, my GPU is using micron memory so that may be the reason why i have a mediocre OC. My CPU is Overclocked from a stock 3.5 ghz to 4.0 ghz with the default unchanged voltages and its temperatures flucuated from 68c to 81c in a Prime95 stresstest that ran for exactly 1 hour. I haven't tried going above 4.0 ghz as i don't wanna mess with any voltages as i am quiete new to Overclocking. In my 3DMark Firestrike test they both hovered around the 50-60s respectively. Here are my Firestrike Scores: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/15464197?

So i wanna know are my scores in line with anyone else who might have a 1070 and an equal if not better CPU ? Feel free to share your results, experiences, opinions, Etc.

My PC Specs are the following :
EVGA SC 8GB GTX 1070
Intel i5 4690k ( 3.5 Ghz )
Kingston HyperX FURY 16 GB Ram 1866 Mhz
1 TB 7200 RPM HDD
500W EVGA Power Supply
Asus Z97-Pro Gamer
NZXT S340 Black
Hyper 212 EVO

If your wondering i have 2 intake fans in the front, 1 intake fan at the top, and 1 Outtake in the back.

    there is my score, 2600k@4.5ghz and 980ti@1.5ghz. i have hyperthreading so naturally combined with higher cpu speed my physics score is higher than yours.

    what version of prime95 where you testing your cpu with? if you were using anything higher than prime version 26.6 then you are getting much higher cpu temps than you should. retest using 26.6. you should be able to get to 4.4ghz on the 4670k without much issue while staying at or below 1.30v on the core and below 80c.
