What exactly is the purpose of the power limit percentage? I see core voltage and that makes sense from overclocking in the past but this new stuff has way more things to change/adjust so I'm still getting used to it.

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.

Ah ok that makes sense.

And when you overclock you just monitor whatever afterburner says when you are running a benchmark/game?

How does gpu boost affect your overclock. Like if you OC the core 100mhz which is technically 1300mhz does gpu boost kick in or no? I feel like it would be easier to disable it maybe.
