I have a phenom II 965 and I'm planing to overclock it at 4ghz
the question is if i overclock it with a very good cooler like tuniq 120 extreem or spire thermax eclipse II so that i have good temperatures,will that overclock reduce the processor's life??
I mean does life of the processor only depends on temperatures?? or any overclock weather at good temperatures or high temperatures has to reduce processor's life..??
Any overclocking will essentially shorten the overall life span of the component, but no one can give an actual figure as to how much, it is an acceptable factor to all overclockers.
Voltage vs heat, voltage is the killer and increased voltage = increased heat, which is kept in check with a good aftermarket cooling solution, lack of knowledge is also a killer because you need to know your intended overclocking components limitations.
