Without additional voltage from a hardmod they won't go above 1.212V anyways just like all of the other 680's, power phases means squat when you can't feed them. If you want a legit OC'ing card, the Lightning and one of the Galaxy models are the only ones with full voltage control, and even then you have to flash the BIOS to access it on cards shipped any time recently. Nvidia does not like us overvolting Kepler. At all.
