Got a new build arriving this week and it shall be my first attempt at overclocking. I have read through the guides and have a fairly good understanding of what I'm doing but I was wondering what the better software options are?

In many of the lists alot of the software does the same thing, and some do more than others. Could you guys tell me the better options and any other software I may need?

Cheers guys, ordered the Asus P8P67 PRO B3 revision and already have the latest BIOS sitting on a USB ready and raring to go, not sure if the revision has the newer BIOS though. I'm just waiting now also I'm only going to try and hit 4.4ghz so It should be a walk in the park. Already have that link bookmarked, but thanks Ginger.
