For benching and gaming? Sure. For full 24/7 stability with lots of encoding ( 100% CPU usage ), no, unless you have very superb cooling keeping it below 70C.
I myself didn't feel safe running 1.45V on my gulftown, why do it on a 22NM, also make sure your VTT's and VCCSA's aren't out of wack.
Edit: I really should have binned this chip on the RIVE. This chip is producing a crapton more heat on X79-Deluxe than another 4930K within the same batch on RIVE with similar voltages.
H110 is barely keeping up on the X79-Deluxe, when the H110 was able to cool a chip on the RIVE at more than 0.05 more V.
Directed a panaflo towards the CPU socket / VRM area and temps dropped by nearly 10C. Really wish I was a large distributor / hardware vendor so I can get NDA'd on certain products to see what is going on.
