    What is the Vcc voltage?

    For a while I have been thinking the DDR voltage and the Vcc voltage were the same thing. However, I just noticed in my bios the DDR voltage has a default of 2.6v while the Vcc label says "Vcc(+2.5v)". Could someone explain what Vcc is and also if it is indeed not the same as DDR voltage, how can I get the actual measurement of the DDR voltage? Motherboard monitor only has two voltages listed other than the +12, +5, etc. They are at 1.74 and 2.73. I know the 1.74v is the cpu and the 2.73 is the Vcc because the bios says that as well. Thanks for the help.

    speaking of which, why do I have two core voltage readings? one is my 1.775v, and one is always around like 1.5v (xp 2100+ @2400mhz)

    Might be the chipset voltage, sometimes other voltages are set in relation to it, so changing it raises DDR and AGP and IO.

    the VCC is the voltage that all of the stuff like the clock generator run off of. it's not the DDR voltage.

    if you are talking about the NF7 the DDR is read as the VCC
