The µGuru clock is a step in the right direction, as it can be used to monitor key operating parameters and to set overclocking parameters.
Abit also offers the µGuru clock now: an alarm clock-type device, which is connected by USB and outsources monitoring and overclocking control to a convenient spot on your desk. Without needing to adjust the BIOS or the OC-Guru in Windows, the system can be quickly clocked up or down at will. Moreover, the computer can be conveniently switched on or off at the press of a button. This clever little device also displays emails and MSN messages as well as the room temperature.
Connection is simplest by USB.
Thanks to the integrated port 80 module, hardware faults can be localized in a jiffy - it is also a useful tool for overclocking, as the weakest link can be identified quickly.
