Heating be a problem to longevity?

Yesterday I came across a blog post mentioning both normal working temperature and the one under stress test. After some search I found that almost everyone is trying to add some kind of cooling solutions on their own RPi, this further proved me right in buying those coppers.

I also did some Googling over the materials of heat sinks, why Copper and why Aluminium?
