Like the program a lot. But can someone help me with something I can't understand. In sensor mode, one of the first things listed is:
Core #0 VID ... Core #3 VID. This value goes from 1.001V to 1.401V, depending on the clock speed and voltage. But it does not really match the Vcore set at the bios.
If I enable LLC, idle Vcore stays for example at 1.344V, but Core VID drops to 1.004V on all cores.
With LLC disabled and voltage offset enabled, idle Vcore is 0.960V, Core VID is 1.004V.
Same thing happens with another system with an AMD processor.

So, what is core vid, and should I care more about this value when overclocking?
With my 2600K, under load, I can see the Vcore at 1.32V and core VID at 1.365V.

Love this program and have been using for awhile now. Thought you might be interested to know that anandtech mentions using it to log cpu and gpu speeds recently and since anandtech are god (IMHO) in testing I would take that as high praise smile.gif

Keep up the good work!

The VID value reported is the voltage level which the CPU requests from Voltage Regulator (VR). Vcore on the other hand is the real measured CPU voltage, so you should more care about the Vcore value. If your mainboard features a Digital PWM VR, then HWiNFO should be able to report value measured/reported straight by the VR too.

No, I didn't know that smile.gif
Thanks for the info. I'm working hard to improve HWiNFO every day wink.gif

Nice to find this thread,i'm also a big fan of your software.
I do have the slowdown bug in the RAGE engine,i noticed it in GTA IV and now Max Payne 3 too.

Try to disable sensors (right-click and Disable Monitoring). Some of them might cause a higher load or latency, especially the EC and SMART ones. More info here: http://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-IMPORTANT-Known-Issues
