Default Safe Voltage for Radeon 6950 OC

I'm trying to push the overclock on my Radeon 6950 a little higher than what I can hit now and I'm just wondering what a safe voltage is for this card. I've ran it at 1.175v which is the default for the 6970, but how high can I go before I should be concerned. The card and VRM's are cooled by a Gelid Icy Vision Rev2 with the Radeon 6900 upgrade kit and temps will only reach 60C with furmark, while gaming it doesn't go over 55C.

Thanks.

I chicken out around 1.225 - 1.237v.

Thanks, guess I have a fair amount of headroom still to try to hit 1GHz.
