Yea, but your 4th generation processor used solder to connect the die to the heat-spreader and your 8th generation uses only TIM (paste). This results in higher, more-volatile temperatures. These higher temperatures, if controlled (and your's appear to be) will not affect the lifetime of your processor.

Just saying,
