Then don't touch it.

Really, if it's not shutting down, freezing, programs erroring out or otherwise screwing up, don't worry about it.

Just start putting money aside for new mobo and cpu if anything happens.

And remember to have back ups of all important data.

all i have to say is buy new fans, replace old fans, and are you playing games on higher settings then your computer can handle, because that could be the problem as well
