Default Safe voltages for Phenom II?

Hello everyone. I'm just wanting to find out what the maximum voltage for daily use would be on the Phenom II chips, specifically the Phenom II 555 (Unlocked to 3 core). Currently I'm running 4.0Ghz at 1.45v. (200x20)

Most 45nm CPUs from AMD have a max voltage of about 1.5v, including yours. But technically, there is not really a max, you can go as high as you want. You just risk damaging the CPU. I would recommend you stay at 1.5v or below.

Alright, I'll probably go to 1.5 and see what I can get it to then. I max out at 34C right now, so hopefully I can get higher, as long as my temps stay down.
