It can reduce the life of a CPU, but it's much more likely to cause electron migration in a P4...a P4 won't last at that vCore. Most AthlonXP's should be alright at that high of a voltage, assuming it's cooled properly (probably watercooled).

Ive always taken my processors up and beyond but not for more than a couple days at a time. Merely for top score benchmarks and such. Try to keep your max everyday overclock to around 1.9v with the top in aircooling (SLK-800 w/ 80mm tornado and better) or watercooling.

I ran a 2400+ for a year at around 1.9-2.0V and it was fine. However, it was not fine at 2.3V... :rolleyes:

A P4 would not last long at all at 2.0V.
