the external device look nice.

But this is software-based. The device only displays current info, just like any other overclocking program out there. The buttons activate the driver-based overclocking, that's all.

A hardware-based external device would be great.

Driver and documentation on a CD. Blah. This is blatantly a software solution then. They should have something which goes directly into the graphics card via a connector to give this info.
