MSI Afterburner: http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

eFMer TThrottle (for throttling CPU and/or GPU with predefined temp settings): Page Redirection to efmer.com This is great for laptops. I have used it a ton to prevent unwanted overheating/restarts.

Core Temp: Core Temp

There is also known issues with some Remote Desktop software causing GPU work to crash. You may need to test various options. I know that Ultra VNC, Team Viewer, and LogMeIn have all worked fine for me.
I have personally used the following without issues
LogMeIn
Team Viewer ver. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
PCAnywhere ver. 11.5, 12.5
UltraVNC ver. 1.1.9.3
Chrome Remote Desktop

Intel's OpenCL SDK: This is now included in the latest drivers for the GPU's that are supported. BOINC version 7.0.40 or above is necessary to detect Intel GPU's.

I wanted to make my fellow teammates aware of the excellent free program "BoincTasks," which allows you to remotely monitor and control all of your BOINC crunchers very easily and, IMHO, provides a much better interface than provided by the standard BOINC Client. I have been using this program for about a year now and consider it an indispensable tool for serious and casual crunchers alike.

Website/Download location: http://efmer.com/b/boinctasks

Thread at [H] dedicated to this tool: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1041365036#post1041365036

This program does everything the standard BOINC client can do, plus much more. If you have multiple crunchers, this program is essential for keeping track of things on all your machines.

I am just going to include several screenshots below, as most BOINC crunchers should see the benefits of this program just by looking at the screenshots. However, feel free to ask me any specific questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them.

Please note, I have no vested interest in this program or developer whatsoever. I am merely a satisfied user of the program and I wanted to share my experiences with my teammates.

Is this cross platform? I wish to monitor Linux (Ubuntu) crunchers via a Windows machine.

I've not used Boinctasks before but if you do there is a add on utility to Boinctasks to gather statistics from the boinctasks history file.
