Which generally means that you are only supposed to use ASUS proprietary tools for overclocking their cards.

Probably done to ensure their customers don't overdo things !

When looking at Core Speed in Rivatuners Hardware monitor, what does it show for 2D ( desktop) and 3D (game, 3dmark, etc) activities ?
I disagree with you here. I have used either coolbits, coolbits 2, or nvtweak on my ASUS V9980 Ultra from the time I owned it. I've never used ASUS' software, I've only ever used official drivers from nvidia's site.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4x4GB)
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
