Clock speed control applet for Ubuntu... anything like it in Windows?

It's supposed to allow you to set CPU clock speed as controlled by AMD Cool'n'quiet or Intel SpeedStep. I love having this kind of speed/power control on my new laptop, which has Ubuntu installed on it with a Pentium M 740. I know, Windows does come with those "power options", but is there anything out there exactly like this? I.e. I could control clock speeds similar to the power options but be able to lock the CPU to a certain clock speed I want, as well as displaying the clock speed itself and not just "balanced, power saver, performance"?

I know of K10Stat but I'm not so confident with having to use a software-based OC again

Isn't what you're asking for software cpu (over/under)clocking?

No. This applet available to me in Ubuntu, accessable from the top dock, basically allows user-based control of Intel Speedstep or AMD Cool'n'Quiet/PowerNow (downclocking to reduce voltage & energy when the full speed is not needed). It is not actually an overclocking program. You can do this Windows via control panel > power options, but I would like this access from my taskbar in the kind of manner that Ubuntu's applet allows for.

Oh.. I only know of monitors. I will be looking now, though; I am interested as well.
