You can do it with the nVidia config tool that comes with the proprietary drivers, it gives you control over many of the internal settings of your video card. Install them either by downloading the binary and building your own module or installing via the repostory at rpmfusion.

I run already the proprietary 334.21 driver for Maxwell. Do you mean the NVIDIA X Server Settings tool? That tool only allows you to switch the preferred performance level mode but it has no overclocking options.

I'm sure I've used it for that before. There used to be a long list of tweaks you could do. Perhaps it has 'moved on' since I last used it... (it has been a while, if I'm honest). Perhaps you may have more success with 3rd party tools that do the job? How about

Ahhh, dammit. The nVidia website seems to confirm that official tools no longer support this (yes I know this is referring directly to the Windwos drivers, but will probably relate to the same code base for Linux too):

On the plus side they suggest 3rd party alternatives... I have no idea if they work with Linux or a limited to inferior operating systems, though.

Hehe, I know NVIDIA's Linux driver has zero overclocking features. ;) NVClock is useless because it doesn't even support Keppler not to mention Maxwell GPUs. So far I haven't found a 3rd party solution which works with modern NVIDIA GPUs of recent years.
