You'll still hit a thermal wall before a voltage one. That, or wreck your motherboard's VRMs.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

Im pretty sure CPUs can last an upwards of 30+ years. unless you dawgs mean 10 year lifespan if the pc was on 24/7 for 10 years

You're probably right, but who's going to be using a CPU for 30 years? In relevance to the topic, I'm pretty sure the TC is only worried if he's going to burn his processor out in the next few months to few years. It'll likely be far, far away in 10 years, let alone 30.

Yeah, I just want it to last a few years before my next upgrade

As long as the heat and voltage levels are within the standards it won't affect it's usable life, and by that I mean you'd be due for an upgrade long before the processor died on you.
Oh god there's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undue that.
