Could someone explain VIC in CoreTemp vs the Vcc in CPU-Z?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
In CPU-Z my vcc is at 1.212volts for a 4ghz overclock. In Coretemp my VIC is showing 1.3561volts

Could anyone please explain the difference in VIC and VCC? Is VIC the voltages my cpu should run for stock 3.4gh settings? and Vcc I know the volts going to my cpu that I set.

You may have your terms mixed up, or maybe I completely missed finding VIC or VCC.... I do have very old stuff so maybe you see different terms confused.gif

Anyway, so these are screens from my CPU-Z and Core Temp. From Core Temp - VID is the minimum voltage required to operate the CPU at stock frequency, ie 3300 Mhz.

From CPU-Z - Core Voltage is the voltage required to operate the CPU at 4300 Mhz.

Is that helpful?

Sorry I did mean VID. 324

My VID is higher than my Vcc for an small overclock. Is this normal?

Don't quote me... but thats high. Hopefully, someone with a 2550k will pop in with a better answer thumb.gif

EDIT: For a really fast reply, you can post your question in Intel CPU Forum, also include your screen shots as well, Or PM a Moderator and ask to move it.
