I just build my new system (sli expert/opteron 170) and I am planning on overclocking it. What are some essential overclocking, monitoring, stress, and benchmark utilities?

 

I was going to download Everest but found that it has been discontinued. The obvious programs I can think of are cpu-z, prime95, superPi, and 3dmark.

I would also recommend playing some games for as long as you can. People have been getting 8+ hours of prime stability and going into a game and it crash. I would shoot for gaming stability as well. try to play games that depend a lot on your CPU. HL2 and BF2.

That should keep you busy. And those are just benching/testing programs. I've got more that are detection/information also ;)
