Remember, VID is the actual stock voltage of the chip as read by the motherboard. VID is short for "voltage identification". The VCore is the actual AMOUNT of voltage being applied to said chip.

I don't really see how your mobo is picking up VID as 1.43V since the 2500K's default voltage is 1.20V. It could be applying LLC to prevent VDroop or your monitoring software may be off.

Basically, stock voltage (VID) + 0.08 = 1.28V. Honestly though, mobos rarely get VID right so expect some variance.
