lm_sensors output

The recent discussion on environment sensors motivated me to take the
subject more seriously. I therefore installed lm_senors on one of my nodes
for testing. I simply used the lm_sensors RPM from RH8.0, ran
sensors-detect and did what it told me to do. It apparently worked. The
problem is, I don't really know what the output means or what I should be
looking for. I guess I'm a novice. Anyways, the output from sensors is
shown below.

What is VCore and why is mine out of range?
What are all the other voltages describing?
V5SB is out of range also, is that a bad thing?
I have only 1 CPU, so I guess temp2 and fan2 are meaningless, right?

temp1:       +53°C  (limit =  +60°C, hysteresis = +127°C) sensor = thermistor
temp2:    +208.0°C  (limit =  +60°C, hysteresis =  +50°C) sensor = thermistor

          Sound alarm disabled
