Default Are my settings alright for long-term running?

I have an ASUS P5K with an E4500 (M0 stepping, VID: v1.3250) running at 3GHz. Just wondering if these settings are okay to run 24/7.
RAM is 2x1GB Mushkin 991603 running at DDR2-902, 4-4-4-12.

CPU Multi = 10x
Bus speed = 300 MHz
vCore = 1.45v
CPU PLL Voltage = 1.5v
FSB Termination Voltage = 1.3v
DRAM Voltage = 1.9v
NB Voltage = 1.4v

This is my most stable overclock so far. It ran with 5 runs of IntelBurnTest v2.51, and 8 hours of Orthos. Even setting the vCore down one step (1.4375v) caused it to blue screen when running the burn test.

My only question is will the vCore of 1.45v signifigantly affect the life of the processor? During idle the vCore is 1.424v and during load, 1.346v. (According to CPU-Z v1.56)
