How much will these temps impact the life of my CPU?

I have a desktop and server that I use for audio work with DAWs and samples. All of the guides out there on optimizing windows for DAWs includes disabling turbo boost and EIST in the BIOS. As a result, the CPUs in both computers (Xeon 1231v3 and i7 4790k) run at a consistent 3.57 and 4 ghz respectively.

Before, the CPUs would both idle around 30-32C, now, they hang out at the upper 40's, with the 4790k bordering on 50 just on the desktop doing nothing.

Heat will damage computer components, which is why we have to cool them, but is having the CPUs run constantly at these higher temps going to significantly impact their lifespan and damage them noticeably sooner? I'd love to be able to use them for as long as I can not just to save $$ but also cause they're both great powerful machines and have no issues.
