Default Maximum Safest Voltage for Newcastles?

I want to overclock my newcastle past 2.5 GHz, but it won't go higher at stock voltage. How high should I go? I went 1.550, but it still wouldn't post.

You could probably go a little more than that... as long as you have good cooling. I would say about 1.65 or so. 1.55 would be the upper limit for a Winchester.
