Yep, 1.4v is totally safe on a 65nm core. I'd not go over 1.5v, but up to that point should be fine so long as you keep it cool.

For prime, all that you need to know is that it fails. If you read the text in the box, it will say what failed, usually a checksum or something didn't meet the expected value. Basically, prime makes the computer do a lot of math and it already knows the answers, when the computer screws up and says 2 + 2 =3, it gets an F just like you would in math class

you're perfectly fine. i ran 1.425v for 3ghz before vdroop for over 6 months and there were no issues.

don't go over 1.5v though

yeah you're fine.

I ran 1.65 thru a E2180 for 3 months. it still runs great.

like others have said, dont go over 1.5.
