There are various stress tests out there, such as Prime 95, Intel Burn Test, Super pi, etc. They are generally intended for overclockers who want to keep tabs on temperatures. Some test RAM as well as CPU. As far as I know, those guys tend to use CPU-Z to check CPU speeds.

You might try a post in the overclocking area of this site.
