So, as the title says... which do you prefer and why?

I myself prefer Afterburner. I find its easier to work with and the graphs are easier to read and provide a high/low status.

I tried precision for awhile.... but it just is not appealing to me. I think the graphs are not as easy to read and I think overall the UI is a little much.

I use afterburner for other reasons, but for strictly 680-overclocking Precision is way better right now.
