Voltages confusion :S (overclocking 3700+ sandy)

Well,

 

I got my sandy up to 3.1ghz stable in prime, OCCT, superPI, BF2, F.E.A.R demo etc.

 

The problem is I need to run ~1.6 and a bit to stabilize it here.

 

The temps never go over 44c during max load... and idle down in the high 20's (SI-120 w/ Panaflo 85cfm)

 

So my temps are fine etc.

 

From what ive been reading, no matter what temps I have, i shouldnt run my CPU like this 24/7...and that confuses me a bit..

 

Because lets say i put some Mach II on it and get it to -50c... i still cant run my cpu safely at 1.6V?

 

Could someone explain this to me...

 

thanks alot :)

I don't know how that applies to subzero cooling. I know temps aren't a problem but I would assume overvolting would still shorten the life of the chip, not as much as air cooling but I think it still would.
