There are loads of guides on this forum for overclocking IB, here's one for Asus motherboards + IB - http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/ivy-bridge-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboards
That guide is great. I agree with you never leave the Vcore at Auto.

Though I usually do not leave it on auto, I do think it is fine for someone who is new to overclocking. Though it may give him more voltage than it requires, it will get his voltage in the ballpark and will typically be stable on auto. For example on my set up, there is a one notch difference between what auto gives me and my lowest stable voltage. So I stick to my statement, for someone who is new to overclocking you can stick voltage on auto and adjust the multiplier. You can check your voltage during stress testing and make sure it is within a safe range, and if it is stable you can lower your voltage from there. I find it quicker to start with auto and work your voltage down than starting low and working your way up.

Never? Not even at stock frequencies? Not even for a newbie who is scared to overclock? I disagree, if someone is new to overclocking you want to simplify it for them first, then let them start adjusting more things as they learn more about it. Adjusting too many things can be scary for someone new, sometimes just navigating the bios can be scary for a new builder/overclocker.

It's good o leave vcore on auto and then increase the multi until your chip becomes unstable. Then start increasing the voltage.
