SLI, set up correctly in Nvidia control panel? Maximize performance? I suggest that you reset driver settings to defaults in control panel and make sure you maximize performance in the sli tab. Finally at your resolution you are likely to be cpu bound and not able to really take advantage of two GTX 680's. Why dont you run some benchmarks like 3D Mark 11 and Unigine Heaven to make sure that you scores are on a par with others.
Just to give you something to aim for I have a pair of GTX 670's in SLI and a 3770K running at 4.6. I score around 16,600 in 3DMark 11 I expect you to score around 13,500-14,000.
Just read your last post with the link to the 3D Mark 11 score. Your cards are working fine. Graphics score is around 19K with my overclocked 670's I hit 21K and at stock around 19K (I have a pair of EVGA 670 FTW).
Nothing wrong with your setup. At your resolution a second GTX 680 is overkill and not really necessary for games. Looking at GPU utilization is meaningless. I have not found a game that my pair of GTX 670 chokes on at 2560x1440 yet including Metro, BF3 and Crysis2....
Here's a link to one of my older 3D Mark 11 scores...
