Shouldn't, they wouldn't put it out on the shelves if it couldn't handle that

No problem at all. Leave it running at high for the next 5 years.

i'm going on 2 years, with the comp on for over 12 hours everyday, and every single fan still goes strong, and not a single led has burnt out either, booyah, you're fine.

My computer hasn't been off for about 6 weeks. Everything going as it was when I bought them, it'll be fine. As it was explained before, it would be sold if it was to burn out.
