Default serious under voltage operation

Yoowh dudes and dudettes

I've been playing with vcore last week. My P4 3GHz 800FSB normally requires 1.525 - 1.55 Vcore default. Since a few days I'm operating it at 1.2 V without any problems. CPU temp dropped 6C because of it

Now my question is for you hardcore dudes, is there a possibility that I might be damaging my system or other components? Can this under voltage operation lead to reduced system lifetime?

undervolting does not damage anything , but there could exist stability issues under high load.

[guess mode] if you burn it in for a couple of weeks , isn't it possible to achieve higher oc's on standard V-core? [/guess mode]
