View Full Version : Difference between Vcore and VID?

I just got a E8400 and in the bios it says vcore is 1.225 and VID is 1.125 and when I look in cpu-z it says core voltage is 1.280. So what is the actual number that is correct.

VID, iirc, is the initial voltage needed to fire it up, vcore to run it.
