If some can still run their very old PCs, dating from before 1985, there is obviously RAM in there and obviously it means RAM has an extremly long lifetime. Same thing for CPUs, you estimate 10 years but in fact it can be much beyond that. Overclocking or running it hot will shorten it, but 3 years off a potential 15, is nothing.
