Thanks. Doesn't seem that it can at a voltage that I like or that my cooler can handle at the moment. I actually turned the GPU down to 700/1050 since I was getting ever so slight artifacts in Crysis at 720. I just like to know my limits

Your Q6600 can go a bit higher with a little more voltage increase. I took mine to about 1.7 but am now back down to about 1.3. Your bios might actually report it incorrectly so you may still have a little more headroom.

BIOS is dead on with what CPUZ says. Only thing is, when I set the voltage in BIOS, whatever I want it to be, I have to set it .06v higher. So say I set it at 1.5v in BIOS, it will only actually be 1.44v when I reboot. That normal?

Is that like a motherboard or power supply feature or something?
