Yep. I wouldn't recommend going from FX 8350 to a g3258 for a main gaming PC.

Your ring might be a bit too low, I think I had some trouble running my ring at 1.15v, try and raise it to 1.20-1.30v at the same clock of 32.
Here's what I have mine at, reading from HWMonitor.


Bus Speed: 100.1
Multiplier: 44 (4.4GHz)
Uncore: 3.9GHz
VID: 1.251v
LLC/RING: 1.203v (I'm running 1.2v because I have the ring/uncore/cache clocked to 3.9GHz)
VCCIN/VCORE: 1.872

Thanks, I'll bump that up a bit and see if it helps. Any opinion on return vs keep? I suppose if I can get 4.3GHz stable it's not too bad of an OC. It's been cool the last few days but hot weather is coming again and my computer room does get toasty. It won't help the 85C max temp I'm sure.

I'm not sure about returning the processor to Microcenter as I've never purchased from there before, but a few people in this thread have so you may want to ask them, I think iRUSH got one from there and a couple of others.

But if you can return it and try again I'd say go for it, In my opinion 4.2GHz+ is the clock speed you want to get the best out of this chip, if you can get 4.3GHz that would be nice, but it does seem to take quite some volts to get there for your chip as you said.

TopicClocker is correct. I have bought my CPU at Microcenter. In fact, I've never bought new anywhere else. They're return policy says 15 days on CPU's but I've brought them back on day 30 without hassle.

Wish Microcenter had the $40 off combo with any board as with the other chips. I had to settle for an open box Gigabyte board:
