Set it to 1.64 if it helps you sleep easier. I recommend at this point to be working with either the 21x multiplier if possible in order to keep your ram as much out of the equation as possible. 20X has known problems and 19x will land you with high ram speeds quicker which will require raises in the qpi/uncore voltage sooner."
that quote is saying that 1.66v is not unsafe. if you read on it says that most people agree that even higher voltages are safe as long as your ram voltage is within .5v of your uncore/qpi voltage.
it is saying to set your uncore/qpi to 1.25. that is different from ram voltage which it says to set to 1.65 or 1.66. it then says that "1.66 is safe."
what it is saying is that many board warn you that anything over 1.65 COULD be unsafe. it does NOT say it IS unsafe. SMALL OVERVOLTS WILL NOT HARM YOUR HARDWARE.
now go reset your cmos.
