Right, so I've spent the day overclocking my gtx 680 in Precision X and I've found the maximum offsets. Now I'm ready to permanentize it with a bios flash. Except bios flashing for the kepler chip seems iffy at this point as there are only two applications that can modify it and they are both in early stages of development. One is the kgb bios editor and the other one is the KeplerBiosTweaker.
The actual flashing process isn't an issue. I'm mainly looking for a reliable way to modify my bios with the overclocked offsets, without anything else being affected.
For example, I don't know how modifying the core/mem clocks will reflect on the dynamic overclock that these cards have as well as the boost clock. Considering that in Precision X everything scales well I'd rather not modify anything except the base clocks since my max core/mem clocks are based on those standard boosts.
Another question I have is weather it's okay for my card's power percent to not be reaching 100% or even the 111% that's achievable in Precision X. I only got to like 90% in my final stress tests and I'm wondering if that is causing the boost clocks to throttle. Or is it that if it hasn't reached 100% it means that there's just no need for it and I'm actually getting my max overclock anyway.
FYI final overclock I got was 1280/1710 @ ~58C on a Gigabyte Windforce 2GB. I feel like if the card drew more power I could get higher speeds.
