    Hi,
    I think you are doing the right thing, you don't need to strain your hardware with such programs, as long as you can play heavy games without crashing and the temps are under control, you are OK but if you insist, you could try Prime 95 to test the stability of your system, make sure that you don't use it often.

    Download an application called Prime95 and leave it running the torture test - that should put CPU up to 90%+ for a while.

    It's one thing having it stable during an artificial benchmark though, so if you are good with Prime95, then it looking positive that all is well with day to day tasks. Worst case, if you get a crash, then just reel it in a bit - no harm done :)
