W3680 Safe Voltage and Temperatures -

Just managed to grab a new W3680 (basically an i7-980 with 6.4 GT/s QPI and ECC compatability) for a nice price. Gunna fit it in a few days to my existing rig (see left), just wandering, what are the maximum safe voltages and temperatures for the Westmere/Gultown CPUs long term when OCing?
I remember reading somewhere that they don't like voltages anywhere near as much as the 45 nm chips.
Cooling is a Noctua NH-D14 with an extra fan whacked on the back in a HAF-X.
