New PC Build, Stress Test?

So I've put together a new PC today, and I'm wondering if I need/should Stress test it to see if any of the parts are likely to fail. All of it is at stock speeds, but I've heard that it's a good idea to Stress Test items so that if something is going to break, it'll break under warranty.

So should I stress test it? If so what programs should I use?
