Not sure how hardy those CPU's are, but 3-4 years sounds a bit long unless you're fine dropping clocks a bit to keep stability over time. I'm not at all an expert, though

Yeah, I kind of figured that 1.456v would probably be pretty bad to make the cpu last 3 years. I'm not against lowering clocks as time drags on, but not quite sure how low the clocks would eventually need to end up at for stability once degradation sets in. I'm fine with ending up at 4ghz during its last year or so.
