What ever man.... Give me an example. I've never heard one, and I've never had a PC at stock speeds. And never heard of a CPU dying through ware and tare either.

Now if it were mechanical, such as a HDD, yeah. But the very fact it's running stable at these high temps shows it can cope with it. Even Intels specification says it can run these high without problems. Now, there hardly going to risk it failing within the 3 year warranty are they?

I push CPU's at these temps all the time, and I don't stop going higher until it gets unstable. What do you think the melting point of Silicon and Gold is?

Yes, you're right, they do. And, if they get too hot, they shut off completely.

I would back that off to at least 3.3 or 3.4. I've pushed my 3.0e to 4ghz and the temps were way to high, even at 3.6 and playing doom3/half life 2 pushed it too much. at 3.3 w/oc video card and good cooling, your system will fly. you can run it at 3.6, but don't expect it too last long. I would give you 6 months at that speed. unless you have the money to keep replacing your cpu.

people really over exagerate how long a cpu will last just because its overclocked, it will still last for years but having it at those temps isnt doing it any good, just get a new cooler and overclock away

My Prescott idles at 37c. load is 45c.

It's just a matter of geting good cooling for it, I managed to get my prescott cooler than my friend's amd64.
