C300 camera life

I have a small variety of Canon cameras including a C100. I was looking to get a C300 (not mark II) and wanted to get an idea of how many total run hours is considered too many. I know it matters how the camera was treated, was it doing a lot of shooting in a studio vs out in a desert or jungle, etc. I know they are basically computers and can run a long time as there aren't that many moving parts that have a lot of stress. So, given a camera that has been taken care of, where do you stop looking? 1,000 hours? 2,000?


I've seen them around a thousand hours with service records showing they were in and had heat sinks replaced (new one on me) and the usual suspects such as connections needing their board replaced. Where would you draw the line and move on to the next one?  Thanks
