that would be really cool. However, I'm not sure it's enough to prevent
"random noise".

E.g., I know that modern CPUs have a mechanism that turns off the unused cores
in order to speed up the active ones (by slightly incrementing the frequency).
 If this is the case, then I fear that the only way to have a precise
benchmark is to run only one process at time.
