Prime95 and the other stress tests already know the answers. They compare the answer the CPU got to the correct value to tell you whether you're stable or not. If you don't get the correct value, then you get the unstable error. If you get the answer Prime95 (already) knows is correct, then you pass.
I'm sure they have some kind of checking system, though. Because people using suicide OCs would really screw things up for a scientific process like this.
