Since we are all here for speed - these deserve mention I think:-

(more) Hard disk/backup manufacturers

6) Fusionio - This SSD company makes some very fast (700mb/sec) and correspondingly expensive ($895) drives. Beware; they're not bootable until a future firmware update.
7) Samsung SSD makes some of the fastest "normal" SSD (Solid State Disk) drives (220mb/sec).
8) Sony make some blazing-fast USB thumb drives (their "Turbo" series is 31mb/sec)

Another great little app for quickly testing the stability of the CPU is Intel Burn Test. This is a Linpack based program...

Also a another monitoring app is HWmonitor

Lavalys was bought by another company and Everest has now become AIDA64.

Shortly before this change occured I received a home license for Everest Ultimate Edition pretty much for free by use of the Trialpay program.

if you can't afford win rar, 7zip is free and has a benchmarking option.

Maybe another shorter list of "essential" programs would be a good idea. People new to overclocking might get a bit confused and not know which of the dozens of programs to use.

a quick and simple program for overclocking nvidia graphics cards.

runs from an exe and picks up updates which are a 1 click affair.

nvidia inspector

also has manual fan speed control.
