It is perfectly safe to run. If your system gets too hot, that's only going to shorten maybe a week in the scheme of things. Stress testing actually prolongs hardware life, as it will let you know if it is safe to run your current overclock.

The stress test will do no more harm then running any other app that utilises 100% of your CPU.
