Default free pc stresser?

ok, just oc'ed my kuma in the bios... running at 3.105ghz, idling at 31C. i want to stress it, so i was wondering if anyone knew of any good free pc stresser/stress testers out there, or free versions of pc mark or something. i really just want to stress it though, and see what temps it's at under full load.

^ those are very good tests.

3dmark06 is also a nice stresser and benchmarker at the same time. too.

I don't consider 3dnark a very good stress test, I've run it before with clocks that I know would never pass burn test.
