I'm getting my GTX 680 this week and i currently use a Phenom 980.

I would normally use the CCC to do the overlocking. ( It isnt stable when i do it on the bios)

Would i be able to use both programs without any kind of issue?

More about : nvidia control center catalyst control center

did you mean having catalyst control center and nvidia drivers installed in the same pc for overclock your gpu?? I think you should use anither app like rivatuner, and unninstall CCC and all amd graphics drivers

I basically wanna overclock my cpu using some kind of program and CCC is the only one I know about.

I got a MSI MOBO

CCC is used to overclock the GPU not the CPU, AMD overdrive for overclocking the CPU.

You need an AMD video card to even run the CCC.

With GTX 680 being installed, you'll use only the nVidia Control Panel.

As mentioned above CCC will not work for Nvidia cards.
Try MSI Afterburner.

Not true there is also CPU overdrive if you hadn't known.

With the regular amd overdrive program i cant overclock as high :(

It doesn't have CPU overclocking. :)  it's the CPU power adjustment :) 

If you have a trouble overclocking, make a thread in Overclocking section.

No there is an option for cpu auto-tune. This only works for CPUS that have an unlocked multiplier

Wrong answer.
It has nothing to do with "Black Edition " processors.
It will overclock the base clock or FSB on certain(700 series chipset and up I believe. May support 600 series) AMD board. If you have an AMD graphics card it will monitor it.
If you have integrated GPU or graphics processor on the motherboard you can overclock it.
You can also change voltages if your bios is set to AUTO.
On black edition processors you can change the multiplyer up or down. On regular processors you can change the multiplyer down but NOT up.
AMD overdrive is just OK for beginners. After you check and see what bios items it changes you should set those items in your boards bios manually. Then forget about AMD overdrive.
Always check stability !

These should be ran at least 12 hours each to test for complete stability of your overclock.

What are you exactly talking about? :S

At first I thought he was asking about overclocking Nvidia card with CCC. Then he posted this. So I explained AMD overdrive to the ill informed poster who said he need a Black edition processor for overdrive to work.

I hate passing along bad information if I can stop it politely. Couple BANS over the years for not being polite to a few people that deserved it.
Maybe the OP is confuse between CPU-GPU?

I see...., How would i know what bios items it changes? is there a way to see? :o

First ckeck CPU status for voltages and CPU multiplyer.
Next will be clock/Voltage page.
Either write these down,take a screen shot, or picture with a camera.
Go to the Auto clock page and click start. See how far it will overclock without "voltage Boost.Especially if you do not have an aftermarket cooler.
When it is done compare the new settings with the old ones.
