Overclocking tools in Linux

I am trying to overclock my machine. All the changes are made on the BIOS level, but then one needs to check all the temperatures, voltages, etc and test the stability of the overclock. Most tutorials (if not all) are written for Windows. What would be Linux alternatives for:

CPU-Z: to display all the CPU information, including Core Speed, Core Voltage, current multiplier, etc.

HWMonitor: check fan speed and core temperatures

Prime95: stress testing with results validation

Also I would like to be able to monitor VTT and NB voltages (see a short explanation of all voltages) for Intel processors (I have a Q9450) - I haven't actually found a Windows program that does it yet.
