D800/D4. In liveview, the aperture is stopped down and in 'M' mode with manual ISO all changes are displayed.

I can't speak about any other Nikon but this method will not work on a D300 because when you change the aperture dial in live view, the lens aperture does not change; it only goes to the newly selected aperture after it does its little mirror dance just before the exposure.

Also, Nikon tries to hold the image brightness in live view, so you won't get an accurate representation of what's going on this way even if you use an AI lens and turn the aperture dial on the lens.
