I dont think you need to worry about a fan dieing for a long time. But just like any other mechanical device, It can die right now or last 10 years

From what I have seen, they seem to last at least 4-5 years.

If you take care of them and keep them clean it will last longer.

I've never had one die on me. It'll probably last forever as far as you're concerned.

why worry, they are cheap enough, just replace it when it dies.

I've never had any trouble. They should last a long time.

No trouble with them, however my power supply bailed out on me.

if mine dies when the comp is running chances are that the cpu will fry in 5 seconds or less
