So, my 2600K likes to chug along comfortably at 1.33v @ 4.6GHz whilst on air (Noctua NH-D14).

I once did a suicide run and got her quite stable (no errors) at 5.2GHz at 1.48v for a few hours of Prime95, but temps were getting high and I figured that was pushing my luck so I stopped testing.

My XSPC RayStorm arrived yesterday, and I'm wondering- If I can get my temperatures low enough (~60s under extreme load or so), would 1.45v+ be safe for 24/7, given she throttles down to 1500MHz and cuts voltage by a big margin while idle? Or do such excessive voltages wreak so much havoc on the CPU at all temperatures that decent temps are irrelevant?

Thanks dudes.

voltage no matter if its on water or air you dont want to go over 1.5 MAX. temps keep em under 70. ive had my 2600k under water @ 5ghz @ 1.4 since it came out (no throttling). doesnt go over 55 on load. only needed to add more voltage recently since ive added more ram. (8gb-16gb) right now im sitting @ 1.475
