DOS based burn-in tool - any?

Is there a good DOS based hardware burn-in/diagnostic shareware/freeware tool available anywhere for download? I've got Memtest (for memory) and hard drive diagnostic utilities (by vendors) like MaxBlast (Maxtor) and DLGDIAG (Western Digital). But I have nothing DOS based to "burn-in" the other major components like the motherboard (POST is only a one time system check), the CPU, or video card. I like DOS based diagnostic tools because they test the hardware directly, no drivers, environment variables, or even an improperly configured system mucking things up (as long as you can boot to DOS). Prime95 and Sandra are good, but they only work in Windows, and 3DMark2001SE, which is very Windows/configuration/driver dependent.
