Default Galaxy brand GPU question

I just ordered a Galaxy GTX 680 and was wondering if there was an app or control panel that allowed me to control fan speed, overclocking and such. Something like eVGA Precision. I've looked but can't find anything yet. Thanks so much!

Precision will do it. It doesn't have to be an EVGA card for it to work. Same goes for MSI'S Afterburner (which includes in-built screen capture and video recording BTW).

Make sure you read up on how to overclock the 680. It's a different ball game then any old regular card.

Google
Or every review written. With the GPU boost feature and it's power protection you simply can't point the card to a high clock.

Since I'm not an ***, I'll post a page written on it

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Kepler 2 GB Review - Page 31/32 | techPowerUp

Edit: For anybody wondering, THIS is why I went with 580. I simply do not like the new OCing system.
