Guyz.....I need your help. I am planning to buy an i5 750 which I am gonna use for the next 6 years. I was also thinking about Moderate overclocking. If I overclock it (say to 3.6 or 3.3GHz,without increasing voltage ), will it last for 6 years??
Keep your core voltage and temperatures below Intel's recommended maximum and, short of a random "*** happens" failure, your system will be long obsolete before it dies of any overclocking side effects.
I had my i5 750 OCed to 3.8ghz, but after I carefully read the Intel specs I realised a base clock of 200 required more than spec VTT voltage, so now it's at 175 bclk and within spec plus turbo enabled so I'm super happy with it and it should last a long time.
