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.
Awesome! Thanks again keto! I will try this sometimes! For now, I will work on 4.8Ghz+ :)

BTW: So far, so good! 6h Stable at the last settings posted above!
