    Multiple VID S-Steps

    OK so heres the pre and post conversion S-Codes, but what does this multiple vid stuff mean, and how will it affect us as overclockers??

    Main rig - E5-2697v2 12-Core, P9X79-PRO, 16GB Hyper-X 1866, Custom H20 on CPU, Dual Gigabyte 7990s, Intel S3700 SSD 800GB x2, 2TB WD HDD

    If I understand it correctly, it should not have a big impact on overclocking. Multiple Vid just gives yield improvements in some cases. It is multiple in the sense that a batch of chips may use different voltages, but an individual chip still has a fixed voltage.

    It is unlikely there will be much of an increase in voltage due to multiple Vids. Maybe some 1.55 V chips will appear (maybe not). But some chips will definitely get a voltage decrease (maybe 1.475 or 1.45).

    If you're overclocking, you want to find the magic chips with the lowest Vid. But of course the only way to know is to open the box and see if you got lucky.
