    No harm. But make sure you have decent cooling and temperatures don't go too high.

    Shouldn't cause any problems. Get some temperature monitoring software like Motherboard Monitor. Also, clean the processor fans and mobo once in a while to prevent accumulation of dust.

    lol.... my computer sees a shutdown only once or twice a week....

    moreover it is often encoding video or playing games... which makes it a 100% cpu usage for 18-20 hours continuously very often....

    it is all silicon my friend.... no big deal

    on the other hand if u shut it down and start it very often.... it is not good for silicon... the temperature rises and falls and rises... this causes expansion and contraction and expansion in chips...... ever heard of withering of rocks....??? lol..

    no harm. i kept my modem and computer on for a whole day when i was downloading ubuntu...

    if u keep ur monitir off, it will consume less power and will save ur modem or computer from damage.

    only overvolatage can damage it.
