Just because it is overclocked to 4.4gig does not mean it runs at that speed all of the time. EIST will vary cpu speed dynamically in relation to load. Run prime95 and see if your cpu does not run at full speed.

Next, remember you are never guaranteed that your cpu will run at a speed over it rated speed.

How exactly did you overclock ie did you up the multi OR did you up the bclk speed? Did you test the overclock stability using either prime95 or IBT?

The Intel Core i5-6600K processor has a 3.50 GHz clock speed and 3.90 GHz turbo speed and has an impressive average benchmark score of 7791.
The AMD Radeon R9 380 2 GB graphics card has an impressive average benchmark score of 5536.
Your gaming system also has 16 GB of DDR4 RAM - which is the newest and fastest it can use.
I'm not a hardware/gaming expert, but I'm at a loss as to why you would risk damage or instability to your gaming system by overclocking the processor.

I used the Asus dual intelligent processors 5 for the overclocking, I didn't do it manually. My problem here is with obs freezing and lagging even at lowest settings

IMO software overclocking is less than useless; ALL overclocking should be done manually in the bios/uefi then checked for stability. If the overclock is not stable, it is worthless.

First of all, remove ALL overclocking. Return all settings to stock then run some programs to see if you still have the problem. I would download/install the asus monitoring software for your mb [this is available on the support page for your board] Once that is installed, run some type of stress test ie prime95 or IBT [both free downloads] Post the following info; cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. Ideally post these under a no load condition and under a full load condition.

A few other items;
1 Is this a clean install of win10 OR did you upgrade an existing os to win10?
2 When you do any windows install, it is done in the following order;
A Install the os
B Update to the latest service pack [no sp for win10]
C Install the chipset/mb driver [sometimes called inf driver]
D Install sound, nic/lan drivers
E Install video driver
F Run windows update and install all critical updates. Repeat until there are no more critical updates.
3 Failure to install in the above order often results in drivers not config correctly.
