I would say that the max safe vcore is 1.45v. Here is a decent overclocking guide for your board. http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=1323403&mpage=1
I would say to start out using a fixed voltage and then once you find a stable voltage you can switch over to an offset. It's just easier and more straight forward to start overclocking with a fixed voltage. You should test your overclock stability using P95 or folding@home. I find that folding finds instability faster. Also open event viewer and go to custom views and then administrative events. Do some research on WHEA errors because sometimes even though P95 or folding won't come up with errors you will see that you are getting errors in event viewer which means you need to up your vcore. Hope that made sense I'm really sick today so my mind is gonzooo
