Hue, I'm not sure if I'm following you here on this. Which VID are you referring to, and of course MSI calls everything associated with CPU voltage something different entirely. At any rate here's all of the voltages that are customizable:
CPU VDD Voltage
CPU-NB VDD Voltage
CPU DDR-PHY Voltage
DDR VREF Voltage
NB-PCIe I/O Voltage
HT Link Voltage
Also, you mentioned heat being a likely suspect. My CPU even at 1.495v idles ~30C And loads @ 49C. And obviously with the lower clocks are lower volts and much lower temps. I'm thinking that the signal from the PCIe lanes is getting muddled somehow. So I was contemplating increasing the "NB -PCI-e" and "NB-PCI-e I/O" voltages to see if that would improve signal strength and take care of the video anomalies.

I suppose if all else fails, that might be the only option.

I'll try submitting it a few times and see if it takes. I verified the system clock/date's match.
