    CPUID or Linux equivalent

    Hi folks,

    apologies if this is in the wrong section, but I wasn't sure where to post it.

    When I used win 7 and I wanted to overclock my PC, I used three programs to keep a check on the overclock and temps... these were OCCT, CPUZ and HWMoniter. Is there a Linux version of these, if not, what do people use when overclocking their CPU/GPU to check the clock and more importantly, the temps.

    Conky tells me everything I want to know about how my computer's doing, at a glance. It just draws on the desktop and you can make it show whatever you want, or look however you want.

    If you're lucky, sensors will show you the temp without issue, and then you can monitor it with something like conky.
    Code:
    sensors
    Depending on what CPU you have, you may have to jump through some hoops to get the temp output, see turbo speeds, etc.

    lscpu is another command to keep handy:
    Code:
    lscpu
    lscpu -e

    Install psensors package - it displays all the temps. CPU info including the current clock rate is available in /proc/cpuinfo.
