    Hi javier

    No, you'll have to use GPU Tweak II to control the external fan headers.

    They're exactly the same when it comes to OC.

    GPU Tweak has additional fan control as mentioned by Nate. AB doesn't. I use both in my rig.

    I'm digging the new and improved GPU Tweak II with OSD. There are some nice features with GPU Tweak II's OSD and it shows the major readings without using Riva Tuner Statistics Server which Afterburner uses and Precision X OC I believe now uses HWMonitor.

    Precision X OC's "KBoost" is exclusive to EVGA gpu's only, this locks your gpu at the max overclock, Afterburner can lock the max clock on any gpu. GPU Tweak does not offer this yet and after some testing, I get lower benchmark scores locking the gpu at max clock so not that big of a deal.

    GPU Tweak II allows you to add a photo and text, you can adjust the size and transparency of the photo and text and place it anywhere on the screen. Afterburner and Precision X OC do not offer this.

    All three overclocking tools will overclock your gpu the same, it basically comes down to which one you prefer.

    Here is a video with GPU Tweak II's OSD, I added the Republic of Gamers logo and "The Choice of Champions" text, I think it's pretty cool.

    I'm loving the OSD so far, been wanting to get rid of AB/Rivatuner for so long. Less system resources the better.

    Pity that Asus timeline for the GPU Tweak beta programme is so long though, hoping it's bug free on release for that timeline!
