Suggested Benchmarking Software

What are the most used, or best regarded, benchmarking software for CPU and GPU?

I thought this would be an easy one I could figure out myself from a little look on Google... but daaaaamn, there a lot of benchmarking programs! What are the most popular ones I could use to get an accurate reflection on how my CPU and GPU perform?

Thanks!

P.S. Not so much for benchmarking ... but if you want to test the stability of overclocks ... in particular XMP for "RAM overclocking", then MEMTEST 64 is a useful tool:

As Kgluong mentioned, Cinebench helps to give a nice baseline.

I've also seen a lot of youtubers referencing the FFXV Benchmark in their reviews - it's also free.

Prime95 and AIDA64 scare me. They do crazy things to the temps on my CPU and make me really nervous, but I think I'm also a coward when it comes to Overclocking. These are probably more stress tests to test stability than benchmarks to just see how you stack up.

Thanks a lot for those GPU and CPU benchmarking tools. That's really helpful. Thank you. :-)
