YES, THIS IS HOW THESE CARDS WORK.
Sorry for shouting but practically every single one of the 434 different GTX670 thread talks about this, and I'm getting frustrated repeating myself
All these cards have an additional boost beyond whatever you set the boost clock to (or what it's set at stock, in your case). I call this the 'Kepler Boost'. This amount is different on every chip, we've seen reports of values between 0 and 235MHz on 670/680 cards.
In you case the Kepler Boost (or KB for short) is 144MHz (1124-980). Unless you get some kind of throttling going on (like via temps or power limit) whenever you actually run a 3d app, you'll always get +144MHz over whatever the Boost Clock is set to.
And this, DaddyOC, is why I'm asking you and everyone else to NOT just post your Offset, because it doesn't tell us anything useful
