You dont have to raise voltage until you no longer have stability. If you want to run it significantly faster you would have to increase cpu voltage. Most likely you can get a mild oc out of it with no voltage increase, but with overclocking YMMV

CPU voltage is raised as necessary if it is required for stability. You may need more CPU voltage if you unlock or overclock. It does not seem you need to increase it after the unlock so you have a useful base.  You can go as far as you want (up to a point everyone should consider a safe limit under their cooling - i.e. 1.55V on air).

 

It might really help to know your sig specs. It might interest you in knowing that there are some particular motherboards where you should avoid unlocking your x2s into 125W x4s for various reasons - one of them being VRM capacity.
