How Long Do Cpus Last

I can 't tell if that 's a serious question or not, but there are too many factors such as OC 'ing, heat, voltage, freak occurrences, etc. to give you an absolute answer. Nobody truly knows, but my own personal belief is that a CPU that is never OC 'd and well maintained will long outlive it 's usefulness. CPU 's are .A CPU itself will probably last tens of years. The problem with system reliability is actually all the other components in the system. The CPU will undergo thermal heating and cooling cycles as the load changes and as you turn the system on and off. The same is true for pretty much every component in the .Note that MTTF is a statistical number and not a guarantee -- most chips will last more than 10 years, half will last 20, and some will keep working long after that..
