I was sitting around this morning just wondering on average..... How long a Middle to High Overclocked CPU will continue to function. I know that I have a Intel E740 @ 3.4 that has been going for about a year. Seems to have know problems. I also have a AMD x2 5000+ that is overclocked to 3.2 and that has been running fine for over a year as well. Now the settings for those two CPU's would classify them as middle of the road overclocks. Also the temps on those two don't ever really get bad. Plus they are not on all the time. They are only on when they are needed. But for fun anyone else want to chime in on how long there middle to high end Overclocks have been up and functioning. Just want to see what the average life is..... and to hear if there are any real long ones out there? Like a C2D Overclocked to 4ghz and been running 24/7 for 3 years?

I just listed the ones the people listed with the length of time, The clock speed, and the type. Just so you guys can look them all over with out having to go through the whole post! Enjoy I will add more as they come.
