The throttling you described before w/modded BIOS makes perfect sense - in fact is alos described at 'KGB'. Essentially, you're running into the hard-wired 'true' max v of 1.1215 with power targets above 140 / 150 %. Having such a great performer out of the box obviously leaves less headroom to explore with modded BIOS before you bump into hard limits....but I wouldn't complain
Your next step would have to be hard-wiring more v's ...but that is tricky business and can also damage your card, though the temps you reported earlier suggest that you have a 'great runner' there.
On the 680 front, the Lightning some folks here refer to have a built-in step-up beyond the hard-wired v limit.

On the delid front, I'm going to flip a coin whether to use CL-U or CL-P on the IHS-to-cooler arrangement, following the successful7 delid with CL-U on the die

There's a dude selling a 680 lightning for 450 or so if you feel like selling your card. (1400mhz core is easy for that thing)
nahh i dont plan on selling this baby, i do plan on getting another 670FTW though
1 just aint enough for me. hardwiring not that either, this was my first build wish i knew what i know now about computers, definetly would of got a better mobo ,psu, bigger case, and probably the 680 lightining or the classifieds there pretty nice too
