yes you can overclock without raising the voltage (you might not get much more speed though). although anything under 1.3V will not shorten the lifespan by any significant margin. (perhaps it might last 10 years instead of 12, but even by then it will be a useless old chip.)

if your really want to stay safe, stay under 1.25V
