Default Re: Does overclocking reduce the life of your CPU?

It will be severely outdated even long before it would eventually cease working. I've not seen a CPU croak either, unless it was overclocked and overvolted beyond even the extreme limits as mentioned earlier.

I have a Pentium III 700 MHz running at 933 MHz and 1.75V (default voltage is 1.65V) and it's still running fine in my fileserver 7.5 years after I built that rig.
