Default Vista Ocing

I am not a complete noob when it comes to OCing but I just switched to vista and a lot of the old programs I was using to OC say they are not compatible with vista. Can anyone please tell me what are the best programs to use to monitor and check stuff while OCing with vista. Also if you know any guides for my setup that would be great.

I use everest to monitor temps. Speedfan also runs. The monitoring utility that came with my motherboard works as well.

I run Othros, CPUMark, Memtest, and CPU-Z without a problem. I also have ATITool installed and working, although I had some trouble getting it to work at first.

Thanks. I got prime 95 to work even though it said it was not vista compatible.
