Much software expects and requires reliable hardware. How do you verify your hardware isn't silently introducing faults into your system and corrupting its functioning?

I bought a refurbished Thinkpad T420 and intend to install OpenBSD on it. The machine I received has some obvious hardware problems and will be returned to the vendor. How can I test the replacement machine to ensure there are no transient or intermittent hardware quirks, glitches or failures?

How do you test your hardware for reliable functionality?
