    I have a gtx680 lightning, i use the normal bios, and i have oc'ed to +67 on core and +400 on mem with +63mV

    I bumped up the power limit to 133%

    And i must ask, why when i play games, i have spikes for 1 second from 133% power to, for example 145% or 177%

    The msi afterburner graph shows a spike to that power level for just one second, then the power limit is back to below 133%.

    Is normal to have more than 133% power spikes ?

    If i let the card on stock, i don't have spikes...

    I'd put my money on it being a glitch.

    Glitch. Raise your power limit higher and see what it does

    If i switch to LN2 bios which as 300% power limit, then in games the power never goes up from 120 max.

    So it's a bug when i use the normal bios ?
