A couple of programs not mentioned:
LinX - Great CPU stress test.
MSI Kombuster. - I tried ATI tool and OCCT and my GPU would be stable, then jump in a game and crash. Kombuster was the only GPU stress test that would give me artifacts at near stable clocks.

Rivatuner's last update Aug 2009. I wonder who still use Rivatuner.

Didnt see this posted ( and was posting the link in another thread) so I thought to share:
Open Hardware Monitor - CPU Temperature, Fan Speed and Voltages in a Free Software Gadget
IMO better than HWMon you dont get the cpu wattage usage but the gadget function is all I use on my AMD rigs, sadly it conflicts with my p67 Sabertooth's AI suiteII.

I would vote for HWiNFO, a great stand-alone program that can detect plenty of sensors and temps, freeware:

HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools







PS. someone know a good gfx - stress tool, that did not require NETframework like OCCT does? Furmark is surprisingly not working for me, claiming that the GFX card/driver did not support OpenGL v2.0, while 6800GT support OpenGL v2.1...

I read somewhere that Prime95 shouldn't be used on the new Haswell processors because it will overvolt them? So what else can I use to stress test my OC? How about Intel Extreme Tuning?
