Well my 1.4 Athlon ran REALLY hot, so I wouldn't push it it much. It was 1.85v if I remember.

Welcome to AOA, Millyons.
You ask a loaded question...
At a simple level... if you are using a decent fan w/ your HS, I'd say about 2.0v... You should be safe from overheating. This also depends on how fast you are running your CPU, and cool ambient temps with good airflow through your case.

However, in the longer term.. electromigration could become an issue.. so if you want to play it safe, I'd say 1.85v for long term stability.

you might also want to take into account that you will prob get diminishing returns, i have a 2100+ aiuhb and it will run 2350mhz at 1.75v, and only 2400mhz at 1.8v, havent tried to see what it could do at 1.85 but it probably is approaching its limits at 2400mhz, at least with air cooling. For me the extra 50 mhz to 2400 isnt worth the extra .05volts needed to achieve that speed even though it would prob be safe in the long term id rather play it safe. Thats just my .02 however

i enjoy pushing everything to its limits.i feel a safe vcore is 2v and under.
i run my chips alot harder than that myself but i even get nevous about it and keep a backup cpu on hand at all times.

generaly to me heat is what kills.voltage can be handled ok upto 2.2v as long as the cpu is slowly broken in and brought up to this level slowly.and excellent cooling is a must,running 49c is NOT going to cut it at 2.2v!

ive run an 1800A @2.2 and my current 1700b is at 2.15v
will they toast? no i highly doubt it.i fold 24/7 with it and ran a very hot burnin during the day breaking these in to high vcore.

i use refer h20 btw so i stay 27c at 2.5ghz@2.15v folding

h2o would be nice, id like to upgrade to it, but im a college student =no money and frequent moving of computer = water no good, heh. also the reason why i would prefer to play it safe with the proc even though im sure it would do 2400 prob a good 5 years at least is also cuz i have no money
