Default GTX 680 Overclocking Problem

Hi Guys,

Just got my 680 and I'm starting to overclock. The problem is when I go to up the power limit, it only will go up to 112%. Most sites state you should be able to get around 132% I think is the number? I tried MSI Afterburner, EVGA Precision X and Xtreme Tuner and none will let me go up higher. What is the problem?

Probably a limitation of the card. My EVGA 680 can go up to 130%

We're working on it now over pm, and I hope to have an answer from our engineers here fairly quickly. The Galaxy GTX 680 GC should be able to do 130% with no problems; I have two of them running at this setting right now. I haven't seen this exact problem before, so I went straight to R&D with it and hopefully there will be a simple solution.
