1.5v is the recommended, you might be able to go just a pinch higher though.

1.5V is the recommended voltage to use. I suggest you don't go higher than 1.55v.

I wont add anything new, just confirming 1.55v if you wanna live on the edge, 1.5v otherwise.

On a side note, your temperatures will probably restrict you from using voltages like these. 72C or less on a g0 chip, after 72C you start damaging your chip (according to intel )

1.5v if you can handle temps.

You want to keep them under 70c.

Well i did once 3.8Ghz with 1.55 volts and with my cooler my temps got to 85C. I dont know what cooler you are using but 67C load with 1.625v is a bit fake.
