Default Stability Test for Cool'n'Quiet and Power-Supply

I am sure you all agree that Prime95 and Memtest are the most important tools for hardware-testing.

But now there is new a problem i am dealing with:
AMDs Cool and Quiet Feature integrated in the new Athlon64..there is no way to test the stability of Cool and Quiet yet...and believe me, there are a lot of problems with that feature.

A good solution would be a very small enhancement to the prime95-stresstest:
two user-defined variables x and y
--> do nothing for x ms every y ms
so prime95 can switch between idle and full load several times a second, this would put maximum stress to the power-supply and would force Cool'n'Quiet to switch the prozessor P-State very often.

what do you think about this?
