Just RMA the chip, a lot of 32nm dies at stock volt too and Intel are exelent on RMAs at least thats my experience.
I've had one 980x and one Xeon W3520 die on me because of OCing and Intel never asked why it died.
Vtt over 1,4-1,45 is not reccomended at 24/7 speed for 32nm CPUs, you wear down the IMC untill it dies.
