Windows 7: CPU at 100% after dropping laptop

The following stuff I've got in mind when it touches strategic resource utilization:

Item's quality decreases by the following factors:
- time passes, chemical properties change over the time
- environmental influences
- ... (add more / etc)

By having available resources in use to their maximum capabilities - would rather put much stress and influence on these items/components/parts, thus wearing them out faster than if they were used/working at their standard rate/intensity.

In other words, having resources to work in favour of performance and decoration at max, will most likely last for no longer than if the system's settings were optimized to avoid heavy load on components and letting them deal with fewer tasks than they are required.

Wouldn't CPU that always runs at its capacity, wear out earlier than the one that works at fine pace and deals with requests from user, at the time of needs? (how did they say: "first come - first served basis" ?)

On other hand, I would do set CPU to work on max if it gets kinda cold locally here and I had no heating turned on during the day time. (Letting the machine heat up room's temperature xD haha)

Anyways, I wanted to ask you: would you agree that there is usually no good reason to force/make components work out their maximums at all times?

I just it was just a coincidence. CPU still at 100%.

Will resolder the charger cable tomorrow and will report back.
