Zotac is rumoring to be releasing a air cooled 2GHz o/c'ed GTX680. Now THAT would be interesting.
As for tweaked and pimped out GTX680's, there are going to be a TON of them! Every manufacturer is setting up their own version of the card.
Just to add more confusion to the mix, lower end Kepler cards will be released in the next couple of months, including the 670Ti, 670, 660, 650Ti, and the 640. Big Kepler is still not going to be released until after the summer, dammit...

If this is the best the third-parties can do to distinguish themselves, I hope they all go out of business. Choosing a graphics card is already way beyond needlessly complex, and I can't see any reason to pay a premium for the privilege of buying from any of these middlemen.

Fucking 3 fans to clean out or more if you do SLI. I'd pay extra to go with a waterblock rather than deal with that.

I went SLI on the 580 with extra fans. With all the dust that accumulates, a waterblock that works in SLI might have been a better choice.

longevity purposes. People get their panties in a bunch when hardware dies. The lower the clocks and the better the cooling the longer it'll last

I understand that, but companies always seem to want to show what their cards of capable of.
