    Well normally you would overclock the CPU through your bios regardless of the OS you're using.
    If you're talking GPUs then I know that if you have an Nvidia card you can add CoolBits to your xorg.conf.

    Hmm... Thanks for replying. I should've been more specific though. I was looking for ATI cards and found nothing.... I need ATI =).

    Get rovclock from here. I don't think you can control the fan speed with it, however.
