My System Specs

Default i7 970 voltages

hi guys,

Just wondering what the max voltages for the 970s are for 24/7 use? I started monkeying around with mine and gotten it up to 4.2 no prob so far , just need to know what limits I can go without breaking this chip.
I couldnt think of something snarky or interesting to put here this time around.
