My System Specs

Default

The thing is though, with pushing the voltage so high you get diminishing returns on your overclock. To the point where 1.4 vs 1.53 will net you no appriciated gain giving the cooling sceme. Plus the higher the thermal load that isn't disipated (using the Noctua) the more electrical resistance. You start having to push beyond 1.53 on the board side to actually get 1.53 on the chip side , and that will stress any board out. Sure, the chip might not fail. But I bet you will start killing all the boards for no good reason.

I won't run my PSU beyond 80%, I would push my voltage to that threshold either out of personal preference.
