Do you realize the Intel spec sheet for 32nm 980 is max 1.4v? So yes, 1.45 on a 980 would be more than Intel's max for vcore.
The problem is that websites like Tomshardware and the cowboys @ Anandtech jack the VTT, PLL and vcore way above spec for a mediocre overclock in their reviews and they kill chips. They don't know why cause they have no business overclocking in the first place. Then starts the web panic. Uneducated overclockers are a danger to the hobby.
