Like, CPU-Z, and Everest Home Edition (unless you know of a better one to monitor CPU temp), if anyone has windows 7 and Everest, have you had some kind of error for drivers, i dont know how to fix it x.x
More aboutwhat kind programs download
I'd recommend these: Hardware Monitor, Prime95, MemTest86, and 3DMark Vantage. Sorry I can't answer your question about 7 and Everest.
For memory testing I'd say MemTest86+ over MemTest86. I had an issue where MemTest86 would not work for me, but MemTest86+ would.
