Default Temperature and OC monitoring programs?

What are some good programs to monitor temperatures for CPU, Mobo and GPU? Also, What is a good program to use to easily OC a GPU?

I currently use ATITool for my GPU, but wonder if there is something newer and better.

I saw in these forums someone using ATI overdrive, and CPU-Z. Are these good programs? Thanks.

Hardware Monitor I find is best for measuring and monitoring temps.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB

Same makers of CPU-Z has a program called HWMonitor. People here would recommend that if you want to view temps of your system.

What is HWMonitor

HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITEŽ IT87 series, most WinbondŽ ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.
As for OC'ing I'm not sure, as I do not OC but some people would pitch in some good programs they use.
Need to update my siggy!
