Yeah, I have read about the P5B Deluxe/Wi-Fi boards upping the v-core to high amounts when people o/c with their CPU voltage set to auto. I guess it must be true...
Set your voltage to 1.3525 or as close to it as the options allow and then try o/cing again. You definitely don't want to be at 1.6v for long, unless you're on phase change cooling or some other exotic sub zero cooling...
I'd recommend you go no further than 1.45v or there about atm. Some people say you can go higher, but personally, I'd hold off on doing so until a year or so has past and we've got more information about what is and what isn't a "safe" long term v-core for these chips...
My E6600 is stable with 1.416v @ 3.2Ghz. I had to set the voltage to 1.4625 to get that though, as the "v-droop" on my system is about 3% or so. My load temp is about 52°C with uncured AS5 using SpeedFan and Asus PC Probe II and using TAT and CoreTemp It's a few (3 or 4) degrees lower on each core.
