Just for reference, yes I have adequate cooling.. Its in a custom loop, xspc rasa block, dual 120m rad, triple thick. My cooling can definitely handle the clock, and voltage, it maxes at 63 degrees.

But the question remains, what is the maximum "safe" voltage before these chips start to degrade?

Thanks ^.^
1.4-1.45 is as high as I'd go for 24/7
