I've beeen tweaking my G.SKILL HZ's 800, and have got them stable at 950, 2.35v and 4-4-4-12. I've got them under 2 80mm fans. How much voltage can I give these before they fry, and at what point does more voltage stop helping?

I wouldn't go above 2.3V maximum. Personally I won't put mine above 2.2V. The performance boost isn't that large and thus it is not worth the risk in my opinion. I have had way to many D9's fail at 2.3V.

You and from what I've read, many others...

Yeah at 2.3 they may last a few months depending, 2.4 I doubt they will last more then a couple of months tops before you start really degrading them. I like to keep mine at 2.3 or lower (right now 2.15) with active cooling. Although for benching on occasion I will run higher. Its up to you though and different moduels have different tolerances.

The ballistics tend to not fair well with high volts for very long, HZ are similer but a little hihger I think. Cellshock I ran mine at 2.35 for months with no problems (with active cooling). But d9 chips regardless of pcb will degrade with higher volts (its been proven)
