INTEL Burn Test

Memtest86

>Stresses memory to its limit, helps to prove stabilit of your OC, not only used for OC, great tool for determining memory related problems.

RealTemp

Sapphire TRIXX
>It does not require a Sapphire card. Unlike Afterburner you don't have to jump through any hoops to enable unoffical overclocking. It has an option to make your own fan profile although I thought that Afterburner did a better job with that. It has an option to disable ULPS. It really is a great utility.
