I'd like to stress test the processor and the extra stick of ram that I bought for my iBook.
In the PC world, I'd use Prime95 and memtest (bootable CD) to test the CPU and memory.
What apps do I use for an iBook?

Nah, it's not benchmarking software that I want.
Basically, I'm looking for software that can scan/test the memory for bit errors, and another piece of software to test CPU stablility/consistancy under stress/load.

As noted on the site;
"I only tried your product out this afternoon for the first time. I'm really impressed. I heard some buzz about it on versiontracker and some of the tech sites, but thought it was "only" a bench mark utility.
I had no idea until I downloaded it and watched it run that it was a tool for diagnosing specific problem areas in performance. I assumed that it would only output a single number - like an overall performance rating. Then to see that one can use it to compare to other user's systems: very comprehensive."
but they do have memtest for mac. http://www.memtestosx.org/
for the os x system. prime95 is not avaliable yet.
I would suggest you benchmark also before adding memory or stressing your system.

There is nothing that does real stress tests but this program does a great job of scanning all of the hard disks, memory and testing the CPU for errorsDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System
