Personally I have never seen the card go over 75% power target with 1.212v so you don't have to really use power target. I did seemingly see more stable clocks at 106% than 115%. That could be a buggy bios mod or it could be just so happen to get more stable on my 106% runs than my 115% runs.
But 106% and 100% made no difference I also tried 90% and had same results. Because again I never seen it over 75% anyway.
i had over 80% tdp on my GB 780OC and thats bottlenecked by firstname.lastname@example.org in various benchmarks, let me check crysis 3 81,7%tdp, 82,97 in sleeping dogs, 84,34% in crysis 3.

Have enough cash saved up for 2 Titans, but they're hardly much faster than a 780, as I said above, I'll wait for the new Radeon's, see what they're like, always been with Nvidia, but will wait and see.
wise decision, i went with 780 cause i like physx and since they eat less power

Just kidding of course... i think.
i get rep by making jokes and sometimes deep philosophic posts xD

you really should not be with that cpu unless you go sli.
ok i concede i surrender xD i had now time to make logs and i see the bottleneck
bf3 mp gpu running around 80% and cpu at 100% - still getting 54fps @1440p so its quite playable xD
fc3 gpu running 90% and cpu at 100% - fps ok
sc2 gpu running around 30% and cpu at 100% then again this game is not that gpu heavy that you need an 780
crysis 3 sp cpu around 90% gpu@100% and also had 2.35gb dedicated vram usage, 84,34%tdp
sleeping dogs was actually balanced cpu/gpu @80-90% and skyrim too.
so i guess its an 1k eur upgrade to 4930k in the autumn when ivy e comes out for me, or waiting another year for 8 core 5930k? hmm
tough i dont think intel will give us 8 core for 500+bucks anytime soon, maybe 2017 or even later ...
(anyway it would be the case, mb, ram, cpu, cooler, tough i think i can get back cca 270eur for my q9550 150eur+120eur for 4 2gb ddr2 sticks)
