Hi.

I have done some searching on this topic but I have not found a conclusive answer to this.

Do CPUs degrade under constant load?

I am using my home PC as a server for a game. The CPU load averages to be 57% constantly.

I have good hardware.

Thank you!

CPU's are pretty bullet proof and I have seen very few fail because of age or time in use.
The most common cause, that I am aware of, for CPU failure is a low quality/underpowered PSU.

ah, well I have a pretty good PSU (I think): Seasonic S12II 520W

Thanks for the reply. I feel better about letting my baby run all the time. :)

SeaSonic PSU's are top quality. Without knowing the rest of your PC specs we can't determine if it has sufficient power.

If this is the $500 AMD build from last fall, you should be good.

Extensive and prolonged overheating of the CPU is also a common cause of them to fail.

Strange CPU Behavior and Load
Hi, I have a very strange behaving laptop. About 6 months ago I've replaced a motherboard due to a spilled beverage. About 3 month after that, my CPU has started to behave very oddly and I'm not completely sure if this is even related in any way. On some random days, my CPU usage is...

suspicious CPU temps under load
Hey guys. When idle, my CPU(C2D [email protected] 2.93GHz) temp is always around 32-45c each core respectively which is good I assume. The weird thing though, under load(gaming) the temps remain the same. One core ALWAYS stays @45c while the other gets to about just 40c. I would imagine the temp should...
