tough CPU test?

Along in a box of junk I find I've acquired a 500MHz Pismo CPU card and want to test it before reselling it. It booted and runs and I'll have it running iTunes visualizer overnight, but I was wondering if any of y'all might be able to suggest any other quick 'n' dirty load-'em-up-and-make-'em-fail-if-they're-gonna-fail type CPU tests? I just want to make sure any CPU I sell isn't gonna go south on the buyer after a few hours of use.

Any thoughts? TIA,

use iDVD to produce a disc

you don't even need a superdrive, but just produce a large DVD project, and then have it export the project. I find this to be VERY processor intensive, or you can just rip a Large DVD using handbrake

Handbrake!

yeah, why didn't I think of that! Thanks! That's as intensive a CPU app as any.
