Is there an application that monitors CPU speed in-game?

I want to know if my overclock is actually working and CPU-Z is not accurate if you just alt-tab out while playing a game.

OCCT reported my clocks accurately. At least, it reported stock clocks and whatever I had my overclock set to.

Run Prime95 or some other benchmark utility while watching the clock speed in task manager. If it goes up to your OC'd speed (It will, instantly), your OC works.

Thanks the prime95 + openhardware worked. I was hoping to get like an in-game monitor similar to MSI Afterburner for gpus so I can see how much my speed gets to while playing some games.
