no voltage increses in cpuz - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
i have tried cpuz and overdrive along with a few others. The only time i can change the volts is if i go into AMD Overdrive and move the slider up then everything reads fine. By the way i like overdrive always works for me no problem. I just hate the bug where it will not let me save a profile to launch at startup.

Ok just got hw monitor whats the difference between CORE VID, CORE VDDC. The vddc is changed from the bios but vid is not?

core vid generally refers to how the cpu assigns voltage to the pins, usually from a table governed by the bios and power available from the psu. many people use the term vddc to refer to actual core voltage. the terms arent really interchangeable. i'm not an expert, but am sure you can find some good info on either intel or amd site in some of the data sheets. and you are correct, the cpu controls vid...

See the thing is cpuz reads the CORE VID not CORE VDDC. So when i increase the volts in the bios under CPU it only changes the VDDC?

ok, cpu vid is the regulator for how much voltage gets pumped to the cpu. its basically a table that controls a group of pre-set pins based on a bit-map. vdc is the actual voltage that is posted and reported to the system and programs like cpuid.

vid = voltage identification digital
vdc = voltage direct current
