Well when you get your SB chip you can go ahead and put 1.52v through it and try maxing out the BCLK for 24/7 usage. Don't come crying here when it breaks. Honestly, I am not trying to stir up trouble or spout nonsense here but lets face it, SB is a new breed of chips and you do not know
the patterns of these chips or the type of settings it likes/doesn't like. Until people have had time to get used to them you should be a little cautious when faced with news like this.
