We all know that for 65nm Conroe you shouldn't go above 1.5v, and for Penryn it is 1.37-1.4v. What is this value for i7? Someone told me that they could go to 1.65v, but I guarantee they were thinking of the safe DIMM voltage.

Nobody knows yet. It may be the same as current 45nm chips, but since it's a different core, it may not be. We won't know much of anything until either some more documents get leaked or next Monday rolls around.

Thanks. It seems like all these great overclocks are being achieved with 1.5v, and I was wondering if that would be a safe voltage for 24/7 use. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I doubt 1.5v would be safe for long term use, at least for the majority of Core i7s.

Untill more examples are available, I'd recommend sticking to the same limits as you would for a Yorkfield.
