Basically, overclocking consists of matching the CPU voltage to your CPU frequency / multiplier. Too much voltage, would probably fry the CPU, too little will cause your computer to crash. So the term "stable" comes from after the voltage & cpu frequency / multiplier are matched correctly... typically after a 2hr stress test.
