AMD 4000+ core voltage up

I know this seems sort of (not sure really) stupid. is the CPU VID contol the voltage up? Also why does it only go up to 1.550 I see some people who have higher? Also whats the CPU special vid control?

This is the case on DFI boards from my limited experience. Yes, the CPU VID controls the voltage to the CPU. It goes up to 1.55 as you noticed, and to get it higher you must input a percentage over 100% (104%, for example). Percentages above 113% are reportedly unsafe and will fry your CPU.

For example, if you set the CPU voltage to 1.4v, and set the percentage to 104%, it will take 1.4v and multiply that number by 1.04 so your voltage would be 1.456.

The voltage percentage option is right under CPU VID, but I can't remember what it is called.
