GTX 780 ti Overclock.. will it really reduce its life?

i overclocked my card so it hits its maximum voltage that it will allow (1187mV) and i have pushed the core clocks up so it reaches 1197MHz and 7200Mhz on the memory. the temperature of the card goes to 80 degrees C and the card seems very stable at this clock.

my specs are:
Asus DirectCU 2 GTX 780 ti.
Asus Z97-A motherboard.
16gb 1600Mhz ram
128Gb SSD
850W 80+ bronze cheftek PSU

what i want to know is.. is it worth keeping the clocks up like this as i only play about 4 hours per day maximum and my computer is only turned on in that time. or do i just keep it at stock clocks? i just want to know if my card will die quickly at these clocks? or will it almost be the same lifespan because of the time playing?

    It will only reduce it's life if you don't have sufficient coolers. As long as the coolers are good, the life will only go down by about 3% - so I wouldn't worry about it :D
