Default Question about safe max voltage

I've got a Core 2 Duo E7500 Wolfdale hooked up to an Asus P5Q deluxe. The maximum safe voltage is 1.45, however the CPU only hits 60 degrees celcius at this voltage under full load running at 4.1GHz. (2.93 stock). Still 50 or so degrees lower than the TJMax, am I safe to increase the voltage to get more speed or am I risking the safety of the chip?

Thanks in advance.
