No. There are 2 basic areas of RAM chips. The I/O buffers, which control the data going into and out of the RAM chips, and the data storage resisters, which store the data.
Vddq is the voltage supply for the data storage registers, and Vdd is the voltage supply for the I/O buffers. VDDQ is for the memory so you won't need it for cpu overclock.
