Default GTX 680 + linux, What is the max pixelclock?

I was wondering if the maximum pixel clock is still 400 Mhz with the GTX 680 like with older cards?

I heard some people on windows were able to exceed 400 Mhz on windows. I am currently running 2560x1440 @ 400 Mhz @ 100.4 Hz and was curious to see if I could get it up to 125 Hz with a gtx 680.


Currently with my gtx 470 it works @ 400 Mhz:

But dies @ 401 Mhz:

Also the driver doesn't like this monitor's EDID. Not a huge deal but the vid card seems to be OK as it correctly scales in BIOS and stuff to native resolution (monitor has no scaler):

AFIK it works fine in windows as most of the people with the same monitor as me are running windows and I would think if EDID was not being read properly (resolution/modelines) it would be even more problematic on windows.
