No... Or you dindÂ´t explain yourself well enough.
Actually the right answer, is that it isnt no right answer.
1st-How high you can go depends on making Processe 65nm,45nm or 32nm(susciptable to less voltage)
2nd-Time you Pretend to keep it up.
3rd-Overclocking ins't a exact Science. it dependes in a lot of variables.
Judging from first impression is that you have no problem keeping a 45nm Proc with 1,7v with Load Temps ~65C.Or 1,9v with Nitrogen(cold), has you said that will make it degradate ,loosing OC capabilities.

We, use it because we can't get system stable at those kind of voltages with any AirCooler or Wc in the market. It just gets too damn hot, too fast!
Anyway keep withing "safe" range for Voltages and Temps AMD or Intel indicated max , and you should be fine , has long has your temps donÂ´t go too high (80's).
