Hopefully I'm in the right forum for this question as it pertains to overclocking my CPU. I haven't overclocked it yet as I am still reading up on it and researching before I do anything and understand that the best way to find a stable overclock is to do it a little bit at a time and to run some kind of stress test program to make sure it stays stable or if I need to bump up the voltage.

So after a little bit of looking, I learn there's quite a few of them out there. Some of the ones I come across are Toast, Prime95, Orthos, SuperPI and 3DMark. I don't think 3DMark is the right one because that's more for graphics, right? So which one is the best one? Please keep in mind I am running a Core 2 Duo and would need to stress both cores, of course.

Thanks!
