 A batch file 

:loop
goto loop

also uses 100% CPU and proves about as much.

The Self test in Prime95 is an excellent system stabilty test. It thrashes
the system processor, cache and memory (always 100% CPU usage for me) and
most importantly verifies they functioned correctly. 

Apparently stable systems do fail running Prime95 which is probably why
they felt the need for a built in self test.
