yea 1.375, people need to check their specs.
Well here is how transient spike would work, under droop lets say you droop .03v from idle to load, then the spike would be .03v in the opposite direction without vdroop.
LLC OFF= 1.33 idle and 1.29 load (-.04v)
LLC ON= 1.35v idle and 1.34 load, spike (+0.4v)= 1.38v spike.
The spike is the results of the VRM thinking that the voltage drooped under load and applying a voltage to bring it back up to normal idle voltage.
For general user you will max on temp before maxing out on voltage, BUT for safe i woudl stay with 1.45v like blamless said, but I would use vdroop control. As now with new VRm design for x58 it seems that many opf the better VRm designs, digital and Gigabyte analog are able to not have that transient spike because of the new tech they use to control vdroop. At least gigabyte advertises no spike.
