If im running my AMD 965 at what seems to be its top end am i going to kill its life expectancy or will my low temps (48c @4.0 Maxload 32c idle ) keep it running as if it was at stock speeds with stock air cooling?
or is it not just heat that kills it faster ?

Your chip will last a long time with those temperatures. You just need to careful of how high your vcore is. Keep that under the max rated voltage and your good to go.

you are ok to get to about 63c under load. I run on air with my Zalman 9700 overclocked to 3.8ghz and I hit about 60c under full load.
