To ensure not to run into TDP limit although never really exceeding 100% with a Lightning. 300% makes sure limit is virtually disabled. You can set any value above 100% you like if gpu does not run into that limit.
I never realized how low 100% actually is. I mean, I've recently seen more than one person have throttling/down-clocking on the stock clocks when leaving the Power % at 100. It sucks that the stock settings cripple the card. I would think that the stock limit of 100% would allow for the card to run at it's max Boost without you having to over-...power? Hmm, that term works. Anyways, yeah, always throw it up to 132% on the non-LN2 BIOS or higher on the LN2 just to make sure you don't get any throttling.
