Eldonko, OCCT actually has a Linkpack test in their new versions, they claim it's based on IntelBurnTest.

Furmark definitely for GPU stress test. Prime 95 or OCCT for CPU test, good old dos based memtest for memory testing, 3dmark05/06 for stability testing. If you're just overclocking quick to run benchmarks, you might escape with a quick 30 mins or 1hr stress test (cpu/gpu/mem), if you're looking for a stable overclock that you will use everyday, might want to run the stress tests for a good 8-10 hrs.. Prime95 sometimes passes 6-7hrs and then starts picking a crap load of errors..

Good Luck..
