whats the max safe voltage for my cpu

how safe is it to run an overclocked xeon w3690 at 1.4 volts on the vcore for say 24/7 always on usage?

i know its an old platform but until i can afford to upgrade this is what im stuck with below is a picture of my current settings im trying to hit 4.5-4.7GHz oh and i have a cooler master ML360 AIO cooling this alongside MX-4 thermal paste

The Xeon W3670, W3680, W3690 series are built like tanks. They can take a lot of overclocking and voltage abuse. If your CPU ever blows up, you can get a W3670 on EBay for $30 including shipping. Not a major expense. I think you will be fine for a long time at only 1.4 V.
