Will it harm my computer ?

Hey guys, just wanna know that if I keep my computer ON for 24 hrs straight and 24/7 ON , then will it damage my PC components like motherboard , CPU or GPU and any other parts ?

My rig is Core i7 4th gen 4771, GigaByte Z87X-OC , GTX 760 , PSU 700 W Cooler Master, CPU Cooler = Corsair H 100i.

I wanna keep my computer always ON for downloading and such.
I can pay Power bills , thats not the problem.
I am only concerned that will it damage my PC , if I dont give it rest ?

Thanks in advace

  1. Yes it will be fine. If the graphics card and processor were running at 90 to 100 percent then their lifespan would degrade much faster running 24/7.

    Just ensure the temperatures are within safe parameters and let it run as long as you want.

    My case is Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper , so there is a good space inside it and good airflow and also I have liquid cooling , so temps are always normal. :)

    So am I good to run it 24/7 ?

    then youre good to go. just dont run heavy software at full like 24/7 it will cause damage on components because of heat issue .i let mine running almost 7 days a week for online gaming and torrent stuff
