Do what you will though. It's NOT about cooling. I dunno why everone thinks it is. Unless you are running @ -40 or lower, this whole idea is invalid.
I know that it's not about heat, been overclocking for a long time. I'm basically asking opinions because they seem to vary everywhere I look. Overclock.net users say 1.45v is safe for 24/7 usage. Here people seem a little less lenient.
