Take a look at this - Conky Guides/Links – Nitin Venkatesh Dec 15 '11 at 13:59

"cool" is very subjective. I would start on the conky site, there are some sample configurations with screen shots

If you wish, there are a graphical tools to help with configuration

I like conkywizard

conky wizard

There is also a conky gui on sourceforge

From there, conky is very flexible, sort of depends on what you want. You are going to have better luck if you as a more specific question about some specific feature you desire.
