Are there any stability test tools for OSX?

I'm playing around with coolbook and this allows me to undervolt my CPU when speedstep kicks in.

Awesome stuff, as this should give me a longer battery life on my macbook.

Does anyone know how I can test my undervolt settings, to make sure I still have a stable CPU when it's undervolted or do I have to do this under Windows XP?

From what I know about undervolting, its not a case of whether its stable or not... it'll either work, or it won't. At least, thats what someone else on the boards have said. It kind of makes sense, but i'm afraid thats as far as my knowledge goes. I've never even used OSX i'm afraid.

I just found this mate, don't know if it will be of any use to you, but it is an app for stress testing your CPU on a mac so I am sure it will be fine..

I don't think what andy has said would be true at all, undervolting would be the same as overclocking, if you don't have enough voltage being fed to your chip then it is going to clearly going to cause instability..
