My System Specs

Default Max Voltage for i7 920 D0?

Hey guys, I'm just wondering what the max "safe" voltage for this chip is. I have mine OC'd to 3.8 Ghz @ 1.175V.

I thought the max was like 1.25V but I see a lot of people on here with the Vcore at like 1.3V and up. Do these people just have a lot of money, or do they OC that far because they only plan on having that rig for a couple years before their next upgrade?

I know "safe" is very ambiguous, but should I be able to go to, say, 1.25V without drastically compromising the life of my CPU?
