Default Suggested software utilities for monitoring overclocking?

I've got an Asus P6T coming in but I've heard bad things about the ASUS overclocking utilities. I was wondering what you guys would suggest using to monitor and test system stability for my overclock. The only thing I ever used before was Everest and Prime95 on my Athlon 64 setup.

'Core temp' is good for monitoring temps.

HWMonitor covers system temp, cpu core temps, gpu temps, hard drive temps, voltages, fan rpms and cpu power draw. Do not have to install app either.

Best solution and what I use.....OCCT is good as a precursor to P95. Also I've had my rig 12hrs prime stable....but it would fail OCCT....so I use OCCT lots now.
