With a VID this low he may top out at around 4.5GHz due to heat.ou have it a bit backwards. Low VID means it is a leaky chip, which runs quite hot.

With a VID this low he may top out at around 4.5GHz due to heat. High VID chips tend to overclock incredibly easy on air because they run much cooler, and will OC high on stock or very little voltage increase. However they have less headroom for upping the volts which generally makes them top out a bit lower assuming both chips can be cooled adequately. For the general consumer a high VID chip is best though because they will get much higher MHz on just regular average cooling.

I can get you a better pic if you want. This one was just already online and easy to get in 30 seconds.


no you actually have it backwards.. low vids is a low leak chip. high vid is a leaky chip.

it is about efficiency, less voltage required the less the chip leaks as it is using more of the voltage applied to it.

a high vid chip need more voltage to deal with the loss or leak of it.


nice validation btw thumb.gif how bout you come over to the Vishera thead and tout that LOL. they need a laugh...
