It is okay for short benchmarking sessions, but I wouldn't do that to 24/7.
What are you using for load on the CPU? Even though it's only at 83c, you're way outside the CPU's spec, and that extra juice will significantly decrease the CPU's lifespan. With that much voltage, I wouldn't be surprised if your CPU only lasted a few months.

@newparad1gm: CPU-Z works fine on my P67.
