As long as temps are OK, it isn't that bad. Granted, it will probably limit the overall lifespan of the CPU, but there is no real way to determine that. The only thing you can do is speculate that when they set the warranty at 3 years and the max rated vcore of 1.35v (I think) the factored in that the CPU should be able to reliably run for 3 years ar that voltage. So, you may shorten the expected life span of the CPU down to 2 years. There is no real way of knowing, but there have been people that have run these at 1.55 or higher for months and months with no ill effects. (assuming, again, that temps are held in check)
