    for 24/7 some say yes. Depends really, can you afford a new CPU if it goes to pot?

    I run my E7200 at 1.4V but some use a bit more and seem ok. the issue is really will the OC at that voltage be ok until you upgrade.
    Asylum says thanks.

    CPU dies eventually,but as long as its stable it wont be any problem,2 years life span I think..
