I'd like to display a CPU usage / frequency graph like the Resource Monitor does:

enter image description here

in a tray icon like Process Explorer does:

enter image description here

In particular, I'd like to see that blue line indicating the actual current CPU frequency as a percentage of the maximum frequency (due to throttling for power usage / noise concerns).

Any suggestions?

Rainmeter is a good tool that lets you personalize your desktop and has features to allow you to display the CPU usage amoung other things. That may do what you are looking for. I don't think it adds a tray icon, but it is powerful enough to get close.
