ATI for me = MSI Afterburner
nVidia = Precision.

In the past I've used ATI Tray Tools, Rivatuner, Everest etc. But I really prefer MSI afterburner over all of them.

When Im Stability testing I just use the temp for the core on the Kombuster main screen.
MSI Kombustor 2.0.1 Maintenance Release - 3D Tech News, Pixel Hacking, Data Visualization and 3D Programming - Geeks3D.com
BTW, Kombustor is the best Burn-in Stability tester out there.

GPUz is a probably one of the better ones for temps monitoring. It gives you temps and voltages on 1 simple to read tab.

I know the OP has an AMD card, but I've started using Orbmu2k's Nvidia Inspector Tool to track the GPU usage, shader clocks, voltage, GPU temps, fan levels and memory usage. You can customize the tracking to what you want, and monitor multiple GPUs at the same time. It's been handy for monitor SLI usage and temperatures.

What of these lets you control fan speeds? How many of you let the card control it's own fan?
