    Yep. It will put more strain on your puter and shorten its life.

    It gets addictive and expensive quick. You'd be better off to spend that time and money on upgraded products imo.

    What do you mean by "addictive"?

    What exactly is a shorter life?

    I've never yet had a CPU die because of old age, and I've been using them for more years than I care to admit to. On the odd occasion that one has failed there has always been a specific cause not directly related to the CPU itself.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Well it would shorten the expected date of it dying but it would be already such a long time away you still won't know the difference.
    ie. it will die in 2056.
