Run 4 instances of Prime95......

Or two Orthos.

^^ thats how! I warn you now, your cooling had better be up to it! 2x Orthos and you'll be able to deep fry with your IHS!

Of course its a good chance for you to see just how much stock Intel cooling sucks.

And don't forget to set affinity.

And btw throttling isn't a bad thing. I like it, save a little power and a few degrees of heat when your CPU isn't doing anything.
It kicks back up to full speed when ever it needs it.
