Last question though: is temperature the only thing to worry about? If everything stays nice and cool, does that mean I can take voltages as high as I want?
No. Even at, say, -20c, 1.7v will still kill your chip very quickly. 1.55v is the absolute max you want, and 1.5v is good if you want it to last a long time. Try to keep temps under 65c for 24/7, but 73c is the max.

Always glad to help. If you want to know more about VRMs and safe limits for them, PM xd_1771. He knows a lot.
