Default is Rivatuner still the best overclocking software?

I have not been keeping up with the times (my Q6600 + gtx 260 have been holding up well). I just ordered a new Ti 560 ti 448 Frozr II and am wondering what the defacto Nvidia tweaking software is. I have used Rivatuner exclusively in the past but it appears it has not been updated in several years. Anything better? Does Rivatuner work on these modern cards? Thanks

I would recommend Afterburner.
http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

Built off of Rivatuner, it's been very stable for me. Fan profiles, monitoring, voltages etc. Pretty much does it all. I think rivatuner's dev works with MSI to maintain and update it.

EVGA's precision is another, also built of rivatuner, but I don't think it's quite as configurable.

The first rule of Rivatuner on NVNews is to not talk about Rivatuner on NVNews.

IMO; better than MSI's version,
Nvidia Precision

You do have to register with Nvidia to get it but really like the features better.
