I'd double-check that with an in-game OSD if I were you. If you fire up Crysis 3 you'll probably find that the CPU will stay at 2.4 GHz without ThrottleStop since your GPU's are already being pushed to the edge. Crysis 3 burns up my GPU more than any sythetic test--FurMark/Kombustor, OCCT, etc--does and it's very CPU-hungry to boot. You might find you'll get 5-10 more FPS going from 2.4 GHz to 3.2 GHz. Anyway, I'd find some way to get that max CPU temp in 3DMark 11 down to around 90 if I were you. That should give you enough overhead to OC your GPU and not worry about thermal shutdown. I find that the maximum CPU temp in 3DMark is a pretty accurate indicator of the max in a game.
