i have my e5200 at 3.325 ghz with 1.3 voltage. do you think the longevity of my cpu will be significantly affected by the overclock?

if you have good cooling than it shouldnt effect it to much but will decrease the lifespan of it if your running with higher voltage than recommend, but as long as u have a good cooler and temps are good u should be fine.

I have never run my now aging b3 q6600 at stock frequency/voltage. Well I did to install windows but... two years plus, and i haven't noticed any problems what so ever. Over clock that f-cker and enjoy, just keep your voltage under 1.35 and core temps under 70c.
