So basically i am just interested and worried about whether turbo-boost technology will reduce my CPU's lifetime if turned on, i do understand it features and how it works, but when it comes affect on CPU lifetime, it's all hazy and i haven't really found a clear answer on the internet, so hopefully someone can help me with this.

Thanks :)

nope. not unless it causes your computer to run at 85-90C all day

No it wont reduce its life really. Even regular moderate overclocks don't reduce the life by any significant amount - i.e the CPU would probably die long after its well out of date.

Oh ok, well i just built a PC, and it CPU temps have been around 30-35C, but i havent really run any CPU-intensive tasks yet, what would be a temperature range should i start to worrying about?

Oh ok, i was worried initially so i turned it off for now but i will probably be putting it back on when it safe limits, thanks :)

I wouldnt worry until you hit close to 90'c on the CPU, but seeing as yours is a "non K" chip, so not overclocked and you are using a D-14 you shouldnt see temps go above 70'c really.
