With the i7-870, Intel's manual says that the maximum is 1.4V (above that damage), but the DC operating spec is a maximum of 1.155V, though many people run it above that.

That seems kind of high. Intel says between the operating max and the absolute max, the processor lifetime will decrease, presumably from electromigration. Electromigration has an exponential dependency on heat but a square on voltage. So make sure you have good cooling and keep the voltage as low as possible. You may want to back off on the overclock a bit.

btw, I have the I5-760 which has the same Intel spec. I have mine overclocked to 3.8 GHz and my IMC is at 1.16875V and I am comfortable with that for 24x7 overclock.
