    Well it will be outdated long before it reaches its life cycle and you will have been thru about 4 rigs in that time.
    If you got proper cooling and you monitor your temps then you'll be fine. Just keep it under 80 when stress testing. But first get it and get comfortable with it. make sure your case is well ventilated and try and get a aftermarket cooler

    thanks alot, appreciate you help
