Mine doesn't hurt @ 4.8 it's taking it with ease
Only big issues with Overclocking is heat if you can keep your CPU from hitting the max Temp you can run it all day long at high speeds
Also using extreme voltages are usually the causes of degradation if the chip normally runs at a prefixed voltage that may be higher then the one you actually fixed it too
Also most chips have a voltage wall listed by the maker you don't exceed any of these things the chip could last years decades or even more ,I don't put a time span on anything because a stock chip could burn out too
It just has too many variables on how people use them is all
