vcore settings vs VID

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my VID is 1.1125

however, when i'm on "auto", my vcore is ~1.2
my only options as far as manually setting vcore is +25mv, +50mv, etc.

what's the deal?

well your vid is the stock settings your cpu runs on. your vcore is what is set at in bios, but dont forget about the vdroop. if its set at 1.2v in bios, its probaby running at your 1.1125v. just look on cpuz to see what its running on. as per setting your vcore manually, every bios is different, if you want to bump up the volts, just pick the lowest one and see what your running at. you shouldn't have to make large bumps on volts when o/c'ing anyways.

Set it at 25mv. What vcore does that give you. Setting it on auto, your board won't necessarily set it to what your VID is.
