No, setting a + or - is optional. I don't know what your voltage will be relative to VID and LLC, you have to play with it/try it out and see. Yes, it's possible to have more vcore than you'd like, but I don't think so from where you are now. Sometimes if you're trying for a real high clock like 4.9 or 5.0+ it can happen. A short test that gave you 1.55 wouldn't hurt your cpu anyways, you have good temp control and temps are MORE important than voltage - that's why they can pump in big volts under dry ice or other advanced cooling when doing 'extreme' overclocking benchmark runs.

Oh, I've never heard of a problem booting up due to vcore being too low.
