I would say your right about where you want to be.
Practical loads aren't really like burn tests, so technically you could go further. But if I was doing the test 70C is exactly the number I would be shooting for. But I like being on the super safe side.

I'll do 70-73 on the cores as long as I'm not pushing Tcase. If your board (like most) has bad(or no) Tcase sensor support, 67-70 is about the highest you should push, just in case you're getting bad dissipation.

Is there legitimate reason for me to be worried about this stuff? What sorts of things can go wrong. I'm using "Liberté" by the way.
Obviously I'm a noob so if you could keep the jargon to a minimum that'd be great.
Your Windows will be left intact if you boot Linux from a USB drive. Note that Linux will have access to the harddisk with Windows on it, so if you decide to do weird stuff like delete your Windows folder or something similar, it will have consequences. But other than user error, nothing should go wrong.

There's no clearly defined maximum, but assuming temperatures are under control, I'd use 1.4 as the maximum for 24/7 overclocks. Experienced overclockers go higher, but often with more advanced cooling or just temporarily to get a higher benchmark score before they lower the settings again.
Obviously, the lower you can keep the voltage the better: Less power consumption and less heat.

my family each has their own laptop and connected by wireless connection. If i plug the modem directly to my comp and do a "/ipconfig release or /ipconfig renew" then i reconnect the modem to router,will it affect my family's connection??
note: please do not ask for reason why i wanna do this.
basically its like
1) unplug from router and connect modem to my comp 2) do ipconfig/renew or release 3) plug back the modem cable to router
will it affect my family's connection due to the IP changes in modem?
