Hey everyone

I'm working on my overclock and I had a small concern. I'll start with the fact I know it doesn't help to overlook the HT and I also know to do so can shorten the boards life to do so. The question I have is if my reference over clocking happens to land the HT 40 to 80mhz over stock is that enough that I should worry about its life or is it OK being only so slightly over.

That's fine. There is some leeway. Typically the HT can go over stock the problem is stability not damage to the board
