    Thanks for the links pt! :)
    Added!

    This thread will be useful forever I think.
    Of course I check sometimes some links if they are broken and edit the posts if it is necessary.
    If someone knows some modding sites then he/she should post info!

    EDIT--- NM this post, i didn't see that is just OC apps you want to make a list of...

    Here are a couple on my list...

    MHDD - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2005.10.02-MHDD/

    MHDD is the most popular freeware program for low-level HDD diagnostics.

    MHDD supports these interfaces: IDE, Serial ATA, SCSI. Also there is a possibility to access an USB storage, there are drivers for emulation (USB->SCSI).

    This software can make precise diagnostic of the mechanical part of a drive, view SMART attributes, perform Low-level format, bad sector repair, different tests and tens of other functions.

    ---------------

    HDDScan - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.01.22-HDDScan/

    HDDScan is a freeware program for low-level HDD diagnostics.

    HDDScan supports IDE/SATA/SCSI hard disk drives, RAID arrays, external USB/Firewire hard disks, flash cards.

    The program can scan the surface, view SMART attributes, adjust AAM, APM (Power Management), etc.

    ---------------

    Magic Boot Disk v2.0 © HDDGURU - http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/

    This MS-DOS boot disk contains the following:

    * Based on Windows 98 Second Edition boot disk
    * Drivers for IDE and SATA CDROM
    * Fixed FDISK.EXE: Support of hard disk drives bigger than 137 GB
    * Patched FORMAT.COM:
    o Option /Q (QuickFormat) now can be used to format floppies and hard disks quickly even if they're never been formatted before
    o MS-DOS version check has been removed
    * SmartDrive (SMARTDRV.EXE) and other basic MS-DOS stuff such as SYS, ATTRIB, DELTREE, LABEL, MEM, MOVE.
    * MHDD 4.6 with SCSI/ASPI and ATAPI support and Primary IDE enabled
    * USB Mass Storage support drivers for MHDD

    ---------------

    7z - http://www.7-zip.org/

    Another compession program, also used in benches.

    If you want file recovery, go with Active@ File Recovery v7.1 for windows...i am able to pull more data out of that, than what ontrack software has to offer...almost 2-3 times more!

    The program is already in the list.
    Urlyin and ktr thanks for posting here but these programs are not for overclocking they are general programs.
    Please post them here it is a general software list.

    the normal StessPrime2004 is there

    orthos is a better version though, it auto detects multi-core systems and runs two instances in the same window
