It is not the heat that will damage it... It is the Vcore that the chipset is freeking out about. Your motherboard probably sense to much juice going through the processor and to prevent damage shuts it down. It is called speed-step technology or something like that.

Anyways, you should never go above 1.525 if you want your computer to last.

If you run it over 1.6V, it is not going to last until the summer. And a fried CPU can damage a lot more than just the CPU. It can take the SPU, motherboard, or RAM with it, depending on how good your PSU is.

interesting... so even though the temps are fine, the CPU can still go? but then wouldn't boards that are volt modded kill the CPU pretty quick?

If you could run any Vcore as long as the temps were good then people with phase change would have 2.5Vcore.... Having very cold temperatures helps the computer, and allows you to raise the Vcore slightly higher, but just because you have good temps, does not mean the CPU can handle it. You will get an internally blown fuse.
