Personally, I'd be very hesitant to increase the voltage by more than 20%. Not all people who are putting high voltages to these chips are idiots, but anyone doing it that isn't prepared to buy another chip is. Increased voltages cause damage by more than just increasing temperatures. The reality is that these small transistors aren't intended to be exposed to such high voltages, and while they may live with very high voltages for days or even weeks eventually that extra voltage takes its toll on them.
