How's your 1DX shutter?

Been pondering getting another body and found a 1DX with a new shutter at 55000 frames. This is London Camera Exchange here in UK. I know mine went in for the mirror fix but are some of these shutters failing early now?

That's like asking us how our hearts are....

Well, I;m wondering why some fail early. It's not like they come from different suppliers with different quality standards. Is it how they're used. For instance if the owners leave the finger on the button at 12fps all day 'because they can'?

One of my 1Dmk2's has 128,050 on it but I shoot in bursts of three to five frames on low speed mostly. Maybe it's a heat build-up that breaks them?

Some things just break. An imperfection in materials that makes it through inspection can end up causing the premature failure of a small percentage of units. It happens. My general feeling with electronics is that if they are going to fail prematurely, they are going to fail really prematurely.

I personally think high fps all the time causes earlier failure. Whenever that may be. Like racing a car.
