Hey if i wanna run 200fsb, should i have the vdd stock, or at 1.8? Could 1.8 cause it to be unstable? and also, could a high vcore cause unstableness too?

No high voltages do not cause instability with sufficient cooling. Too much heat does cause instability.

You want the voltages as low as possible while still being high enough to keep the hardware stable.
