I know it works below 100% , set it to 80% and get throttling .
I can set mine to 140%, and in shader intensive tests/games, the card will approach 130%. It is possible. However, you must have a very fast CPU, and the GPU must be stressed to the max in order to hit that point.
My current CPU has a difficult time hitting that, but your 3570k should have no issue. Try something like "Catzilla" benchmark. It will go over 100% TDP quite often.
As for games, Far Cry 3 is the only game I currently have that consistently hits over 100% TDP.Edited by Mad Pistol - 3/18/13 at 9:08am
