    I have heard that raising the VDDQ voltage in your motherboard bios settings does NOT help overclock your video card. BUT, if you raise the VDDQ voltage it WILL HELP overclock your CPU

    SO I wanted to ask, I have an X850PRO that I flashed to X850XTPE, will raising my VDDQ hurt the video card? And if so, how far can I raise it? I can set mine at 1.5-1.7 V. Increasing helps CPU overclocking

    What does the VDDQ control, Vcore on the GPU? AGP bus? I'm clueless

    so what is the VDDQ voltage exactly.. my mobo has no such option..

    i have a vcore option.. i know what that does.. it alters the cpu voltage

    i have no mobo option that will increase the voltage to the gpu..

    a lot of what u hear is bullshit by the way.. that kinda helps keep most folks clueless.. he he he

    I have an p4p800-e dlx motherboard. There IS an option to increase the "AGP VDDQ" voltage. I do not know if the VDDQ voltage is the VCore voltage on the GPU or not. Anyone run across this?

    On my X1800GTO MVDDQ is the voltage of the memory output buffers. I have found that it can add some stability.

    i would 99% for certain say it isnt.. to the best of my knowledge nothing except the cards bios or with later cards the cards drivers will alter the gpu core voltage..
