It was just a hunch on my behalf. I was having some instability issues and raising the Core didn't help, FSB was allready at 1.5, so I tried the SPP. Bumping it from 1.5 to 1.55 solved the issue. Doing this will most likely NOT reduce your voltage needs on the CPU.

I'm thinking it's ok since I wont be running the cores under constant 100% load.
You are cutting it close, but I would run with it. Just pay attention for the first couple of days. Watch for anything "funny", glitches, and of course errors/reboots.
Most users (in my opinion) are a little TOO worried about their temps with overclocking. Yeah you have to watch them, but one should expect them to run HOT with a 50% overclock. Keep below 70C and it really shouldn't be an issue.
