Windows 7: What programs/gadgets to use to customize your desktop?

What programs/gadgets to use to customize your desktop?

I see a lot of guys running a CPU monitor & a fan monitor/control on their desktop. And I've seen some date/clock/weather one's that are pretty cool too. And I understand there's some cool icon things too. So lets see what little gadgets you guys have used to customize your desktop.

And a little bonus question. How does overclocking work? Is it a program you use to overclock your CPU for sessions where you may need a little more processing power? From all the reviews I've read about my CPU it sounds like people are pushing my CPU pretty far even on stock cooling.

Yeah, but where did you get them from? Are they built into Win7?
