I'm fairly new to overclocking, and after watching a lot of videos and reading guides I think I got my 9700k to a steady OC, however is there a difference between core voltage and VID. My question mainly is are they the same thing, and if not what's the difference, and should I be worried about it being higher than the core voltage? Right now I have my processor set to 5ghz, and 1.3 core voltage, and the VID shows up fluctuating between 1.43-7. I might just be overreacting, but I like to have peace of mind over things like this. For what it's worth, when I ran a multicore benchmark on cinebench, the VID lowered to around 1.35. Any help, or clarification would be great!
