yeah under the hood, both look very similar.

Afterburner wasn't picking up any info from the 680. the overclock sliders were grayed out so I couldn't change anything.

For the EVGA tool, you don't actually have sliders to dictate the max frequency, you slide them to indicate how far BEYOND the stock overclock boost you want it to go. so if the card by default will overclock itself to a max core clock of 1 ghz, if you want to set the overclock to 1.2 ghz, you slide the core clock slider to 200mhz.

Also, make sure if you use Precision X to overclock, you download OC scanner to test the overclock.
