As for my VID, that is 0x17 (1.262 with LLC of 41% that gets up to 2.260), just so you don't get so much self entitled, let me tell you a couple of things: I'm while a bit new into desktop undervolting/overclocking not that noob. I have a laptop with a APU 3410MX (quad core) that I was able to bring from it's stock frequency of 1.6 Ghz up to 3.0 Ghz (GPU got also overclocked) has been like that for almost a year, also again playing with vid and fid, that was fun, however in there there was no setting for controlling the vdrop as there is on desktop, or at least in this motherboard. K10STAT worked wonders for that.
Now, do you wonder why I have this specific setup? I mean, nothing compared to other setups out here, it's just a very modest work station. I use that to program in both c++ and OpenCL (that means both CPU and GPU applications) I think you're all talk just because you barely know what's a VRM, when I'm actually an electronics engineer and can tell you to far inner level how those things work, but I prefer not to waste my time with presumptuous people such as you, then again I'm not anymore only an engineer, got a masters and I'm already on my PhD where I can see really people that I just cannot look in the face because knowledge literally binds me, but in your case, I assume you where happy to make Crysis 1 work on your computer and that was quite an achievement
Ah! but why then I have chosen this motherboard again? I told you before but again, you didn't read, space constraints and this is mainly because I travel quite a bit between continents, yes... I have to bring this setup with me but only the tower. which is small enough to fit, of course CPU, GPU get with me on a spare backpack.
Edit: And this motherboard isn't that bad, under extreme conditions throttles, prime95 it's not a normal program (which again I think you even have zero idea about what Lucas-Lehmer FFT means, or even FFT)
