does overclocking shorten the life span at all?
I don't think overclocking hurts your cpu, unless temps are really high and pushing high volts through the cpu could probably damage it.

it does. But it doesn't matter that much, just make sure that the voltage isn't extremely high and the temps are fine and the cpu should last for long enough to become completely obsolete.
