If temperatures are good, what's the highest vcore you guys would recommend for a 24/7 overclock rig in the 4.4 - 4.6 ranges. For example if you were looking at your own BIOS, would you think to yourself "No way I'm going above x.xx" I'm running an AIO liquid cooled rig. If I'm testing for stability and had to increase vcore would 1.4 be higher than you'd go on your own rig is the kind of thing I'm thinking in my head and trying to put into words.
Depending on your chip 4.4-4.6 will require about 1.300~1.375v. I personally don't like going over 1.5v. I only did it once when i overclocked it to 5375Mhz. Other than that, for all my tests highest i did was 1.464v for 5200 when priming (you can find a screen shot of it in earlier pages, i really dont know which page tho). So in general, around 1.4v is ok as long as temps are good for 24/7 and AIO liquid coolers can easily handle the heat generated by 1.3~1.4v (depending on the ambient of course).
One thing to be careful is the VTT. Try not to go over 1.2v for that or else it might cause very rapid degredation, apparently.
