if ur constantly video editing and unzipping files it'll make a difference

When you have good temps the next biggest thing that you need to worry about is voltages. Running your voltage over spec is always a little risky and running it past the safe voltage max will hurt it to some degree. Personally I think like everything else Intel under rates the max safe voltage of their chips, and that they will operate fine a little higher than published, their real TDP is lower than rated also so whats not to say this is true? But doing things like running 1.5, 1.6 or heaven forbid more volts through your chip will hurt it and will speed up electromigration.

i seriously ran my cpu at 1.6v before and it was idling at like 65c. so now nv monitor says it's at 1.59v sometimes even tho it's 1.3 in the bios.

Why don't you just underclock your ram? I always keep mine below spec until I get a stable oc, then I bring it back up.
