I know, this can be an endless discussion. I'd like to see what people think and how much is the lifespan your CPU reduced by either one.

I want to run my 1055 at 4GHz but I'm afraid I need 1.55v to do so. What do?

Both are damaging if too high. That's like asking what's worse, arsenic or rat poison.

I haven't messed with AMD chips, but I'm sure there's are AMD guides around saying the max temp and voltage that chip can run at safely.

Both will reduce your CPU life. When that time will come, that CPU will be outdated anyway. I run my 1090T @ 1.58-1.60V(load) OC @ 4380MHz. Will go a little bit lower, 4300MHz @ 1.52V

It depends what you consider high temps.

your on water so its not a big deal. More voltage = heat. If the amount of voltage is appropriate and the temps are low the cpu should be ok. AMD cpu's hate heat.

like honnestly, Ive never heard anyone killing there cpu running her @ ~1.55V..usually cuz there temps are ok.... u can do 1.55V on any AMD chip as long as your temps on 100% full load stay below ~60C at the highest... Besides, by the time ur cpu dies because u were running a heavy overclock @ high voltages and temperature, you would have upgraded. i have an AMD opteron 165 thats run its whole life on 1.5V and on the higher end of the thermometer and shes still running strong...
