lifespan of CPU Tags: CPUs Overclocking Last response: January 29, 2008 9:02 PM in Overclocking Share V01 January 27, 2008 4:05:39 PM Hi: I can increase the speed of my CPU from 2,93 to 3,20 Gh (multiplier 12 and not 11) by just increasing the voltage of my CPU from 1.20 to 1.275. Running Prime the temperatura is 58ºC (an increase of 4ºC). I´ll have to add 10ºC more in summer. Will that reduce the lifespan of my CPU?. Regards More about : lifespan cpu Evilonigiri January 27, 2008 4:12:12 PM That depends largely on the temperature of the cpu. If it's around 65C, I would say ~5years.

I really need to get better cooling for my e4400 @ 3.0ghz... 45C idle 63C load. cnumartyr January 29, 2008 2:40:49 AM darkspreader said:Man, 5 years doesn't sound that much.

That means you are a hardware enthusiast. Which means you won't keep your cpu for 5 years. 5 years ago, the Pentium Ds were out. Would you still be keeping that? darkspreader January 29, 2008 9:02:05 PM Good point, but I was just saying, in general it just doesn't sound like a lot. I totally agree with Evilonigiri saying that as an enthusiast you won't have a single CPU for more than 5 years anyways. I should have thought before I spoke Can't find your answer ? Ask !
