Safe voltages depends upon the die you have, and the process it was made with. No one can give you a definitive answer because no one knows about your particular die and every one of those billions of transistors in it. The process it is made from will suggest a certain "safe" voltage, but there will always be some transistors at the extremes of the range that will be the weakest, and those will fail first.

If you want utmost longevity then undervolt. If you want utmost performance then overvolt like crazy until it melts and burns. Or pick your point of risk somewhere within that range.
