I have a question regarding the maximum safe vcore of a CPU.

Ive scoured all over the place, and so far they have only said that the maximum temperature is what is important - but in my mind, i picture a large amount of voltage stressing compononets, and shortening its life.

So, is there a maximum that people shouldnt cross? The max on my board is 1.75, and it looks as if i could reach that, but id rather my computer not explode while im in the middle of cheering.

Ive got a very solid cooling fan, plus ill keep an eye on temps, so i dont think temps should be a concern.

By the way, im using an AMD Winchester Athlon 3000+, socket 939.
