I've got a Winchester  at 250 FSB and 1.6v. It's been there a month.
I'm wondering how 'dangerous' 1.6v is. Without any guarantee, would it seem
safe to increase from 1.6v?

What are your idle and load temperatures? Cooling setup? Heat will
usually kill a cpu before voltage. Without more info its hard to give

Right. Temp under Prime 95 is 50C. Should have mentioned. Idle is high
Clearly I've got room to go on the temp - so I could go to 1.7 vcore without
thinking it would probably break the cpu?

Increments are best, just bump it up one notch at a time until you
either hit your clock speed goal or the temps get higher than you are
comftable with. It looks like the upper limit of the CPU is 70C, but I
would keep it around 55, maybe 60, fully loaded. I don't have a CPU of
this style, so you might want to get temp numbers from someone who is
morefamiliar with winchester cpus.
