I won't put more than 1.38v through a SB chip 24/7. I know that Intel says 1.52v is max, but I've heard many accounts of degrading chips over 1.4v. So, I will clock the hell out of a chip, bench it up to 1.52v to see what it's capable at the top end, then down to 1.38v. Whatever I can get at 1.38v is my stable 24/7 clock. After more than a dozen chips, this has been the best course of action.
