You can fire all the voltage you want through the CPU, just depends on how long you want to keep it for. While 50c is a good temp for an overclocked 6600, 1.56v is not. That CPU is being severly damaged and will likely start to show signs of degredation in about 18 months or so, especially if it is run 24/7, likely sooner in that case.
To have any hope of having a working CPU next year, your load temps should be in the 30s at least to run 1.56v.
Heat and voltage play a part in destroying CPUs, you can not pay strict attention to one and ignore the other.

I have the same thread linked in my sig as well
