The CPU Core Voltage (VCore) is the power supply voltage supplied to the CPU.

You need to run a CPU stress testing program like Prime95 or OCCT to test for stability and make sure you monitor your temps with a program like Hardware Monitor. I wouldn't let the temps exceed 75C.

If you are using the stock Intel heatsink, do not increase vcore. The stock cooler that comes with the Wolfdales is pretty much adequate for only whatever frequency you can run at the stock voltage.

Here is a pretty good place to start. It's our generic Core2 guide.
