Here is an outstanding article from Anandtech that describes various free utilities available to monitor and test your system. I'd suggest reading it and downloading some, if not all, of the utilities that it describes.

There are many good tools that weren't mentioned in that guide, among them are.
rthdribl (ultimate GPU stress test)
Rivatuner (overclocking utility)
AMDGPU tool
ATItool (new version coming out soon for soft voltmodding your HD3750 and HD3870)

Are amongst the better ones that I use that were not mentioned in that article.
Also, I cannot stress this enough, the voltages shown in speed fan are not acurate, so if the seem really high or low, don't worry about what this utility says.

If you look at the beginning of the article it includes a link to another article regarding GPU tools which includes most of the tools you mentioned. Here is the link...it's also a must read.
