Hello there. 
 
Purchased at FTW3 a few days ago. Got the slave bios loaded up ok and the 127% slider is indeed available.
 
On some of the heavier benches such as Firestrike Ultra and Superposition, for example, GPUz shows my card throttling because of power at only 110-115% pwr limit quite often. With the 127% setting shouldn't my card avoid power limiting throttling until it is well in the 120%+ power range?

    What are your temps?  Could you run GPU-z in the background on the sensors tab, and let it finish the benchmark, set all of the Temp monitors to Max, as well as power and voltage, then take a screen shot and post it on here or on Imgur.   That may help find an issue that you aren't noticing right away.

    Hightest I've been able to get her up to is around 118% - 119% PWR before heavier throttling kicks in....

    My best suggestion would be to email evga through a support ticket.  Go to "My Products" and Submit a Ticket through there.  Request the Secondary Bios file, and reflash the card and see if that helps alleviate the dynamic clocking issue at 119%

    Allright, I did just that. 
     
    Alot of times this card throttles for power limit early 11X% range....

    Do you have priority set to temp or power limit?
    First I had priority set to power limit.
    I changed to temp as priority and was able to get a step higher overclock without bouncing off the power limit as before.
    Don't know if this is the fix but still something to try.

    Yeah, I just tried the priority thing. Really no difference there. Still typical power throttling in the 114-119% range. Once in a blue moon I have seen it his 120+ but rare...

    I'm actually having the same issue with a FTW3 I picked up. The card will run to 113-117% or so and also reports it's triggering the power limit and voltage limit at these points, and then it drops down to 80% or so power target shortly after for a brief second before attempting to boost back up again. This is on the 127% bios. Temps on the core hit 53*, memory 40*, power 40*.

    I bet this has something to do with it.

    I bet you're right. I've noticed the same thing with my 1070 and 1080Ti.  You won't always reach the power limit and usually throttling is caused by the voltage limit.  I'm pretty sure raising the voltage slider helps counteract this and allows more time before hitting the voltage limit so you might see higher power %.
