Try using x264 Stability Test v2 to have lower temps while stress testing. It can be found in the link below
https://mega.co.nz/#%213tAGnAqZ%21QbCz2r1fG0WjM8DgGYeExngGypaHftAzPUgTSn2kAdk

It is the stress tester used in this Haswell Overclocking Guide

Yea, I downloaded it yesterday to test with the new ring voltage but never made it that far. I might give it a shot today but with no a/c in the house, it may not be a good test anyways.

I wouldn't think 1.2v for vring would cause a problem either but had noticeable problems yesterday and it was the only thing I changed.

Just save it and get 860 tii

Haha, I think I'll go for the 870 or something, hopefully it comes out in September or is at least announced!

It's been so stressful lately, so many games I've wanted to try, I saw Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare on Origin free time, and the same for TitanFall, they would of been excellent games to test! doh.gifsad-smiley-002.gif

hell my first gen running on 2 with HT on at 4.4-4.5ghz runs pretty damn good like that xD

For real, if the G3258 had 4 threads or simply 1 more core. It would be insane! The things which struggle on it would simply benefit from one more core or 2 more threads, It's not even funny!

I picked up 2 G3258 combos with B85 chipset motherboards, a Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H and MSI B85M-P33 v2. Both boards cap the core voltage at 1.2v (which it goes to on AUTO when I overclock). And both cap my 1600Mhz memory at 1400Mhz, even with XMP profile enabled - probably a limitation of the B85 chipset.

Thanks!

Have you tried raising the bus speed and dropping the multiplier? you might be able to bring your memory up to their stock 1600MHz that way if you deem it safe.

At this point, I worried the RAM might be a bit funky so I ran MemTest86 all night and it came back clean so that's at least one less component I have to worry about. Given where it's at, I may play the return game. I backed it down to 4.2Ghz this morning with all the same settings from when I was at 4.3Ghz just to see if I get some stability.

Biggest problem now is the AC is on the fritz in my house and it's going to be 90*F today. Not an ideal day for testing.
Thanks, I may give it a try. Did you have to say anything specific or "just wasn't what I was looking for."

Wow not even 1.2v for ring? thinking.gif
Good luck by the way!

Your BSOD shouldnt be caused by vring, mine is at 1.2v its perfectly safe. try to find your bsod bugcheck code and you can better diagnose whats causing it, most likely you need more vcore.

It's a great chip, I'm glad I could show others how it performs.
Before I made the thread I was wondering if I should get an i3 or the G3258, I picked the G3258 to help the community and show others how it performs!

Here's some modded GTA IV footage running on the Pentium G3258 @ 4.70GHz and an R9 290 GPU.

It runs really well on this CPU but recording with raptr GVR cost about 5 or so fps ... it was much smoother without recording.

Might want to jump to 6 mins in for the start of the action wink.gif

Please tell me your secret, it ran like crap for me!

You mind if I put this in the OP?

No secret that I'm aware of lol... it's always ran well on this machine and feel free to put it in OP thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

I've tried quite a lot of mods for GTA IV and they've all ran really well on the G3258. What do you mean by ran like crap (low fps or texture errors)?

I was getting low 20s - low 30s in it, I tried both GTA 4 and EFLC, it was basically running worse than my Phenom II which would run the game at 30fps+
I thought it was another one of those heavily multi-threaded games which don't run well requiring 3+ threads to run well, however you're getting 30fps+

Update on games

Grand Theft Auto 4- Runs like crap, quite surprisingly
Max Payne 3 - Singleplayer runs great, Multiplayer too however I haven't found a full match yet to truly stress the CPU
Skyrim - Runs well
Borderlands 2 - Runs well
Sleeping Dogs - Runs great
Tomb Raider - Runs well

I had forgotten you had tested GTA4 but now you've highlighted it I remember reading it.

Yeah! fps is normally well above 30fps when not recording, hovers around 30 when there's lots going on and recording at the same time but I have seen rare dips into the high 20s but usually only @ 1440p. I suppose it would depend on what mods you're running aswell and mod settings and ingame graphics settings.

I have not tested the stock game on this rig so have no idea how it performs but I would expect a lot more fps on vanilla GTA4.

Hmm thanks, I tested the vanilla game but with all the settings maxed out, my GPU had low utilization most of the time.
