Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 110

post #1091 of 4581
Wow I see, well I thought maybe had had really bad ram or something. I had to bump those to get rid of prime95 rounding errors. I tried putting those at stock today and this just happened



normally it says "final result was 0.5, expected 0.4", it looks like the values stored in those addresses went full retard this time around xD

picked one of these bad boys up with an msi z97 board for 100 bucks...got to love the microcenter.

 If your getting errors by adjusting IO/A IO/D and SA .. then your IMC/RAM was unstable and needed the voltage.

 

**reason why I stated not to bother with them for CPU clocking is; if your just trying to see where CPU max on air/water is.. then leave RAM out of the equation. Should only take ~30min or so to poke around and find a stable max clock for your cooling method (doing this with RAM speed/timings on Auto). Once you have figured out where you can boot/POST and how much VCCIN your chip needs.. then you can focus on tuning SA and IO's for RAM frequency and latency.

 

SAv @ 1.1v

IO/a @ 1.1v

IO/d @ 1.15v 

 

 is a good place to start if you pushing +2400mhz with tighter timings

I'm close to stable at 4.3 so I'm trying small bumps to see if I can get there without too much heat or I'll call 4.2 the "max." Stock cooling.

I wasn't getting 4.3GHz stable so I broke down and picked up a second one and this one is doing better. I'm currently benching it at 4.5GHz at 1.30 vcore (as a few lower ones failed). It was able to pass a one loop benchmark at 4.4 and 1.27 so I kept pushing higher. Temps are lower too. This one at 4.5Ghz and 1.30 vcore is currently 81*C .

Interestingly enough, they changed the fan design between my two chips. I was going to reuse the old one but the new one has more cooling area. New one on the left, old on the right. Notice the cooling fins split at the end.

What would be a good priced mobo to buy if i just wanted to have some fun with this cpu?

The one on the left starts out with less/fatter fins and then splits off into two at the ends, while the one on the right has more/thinner fins. I'd be more inclined to go with the one to the right like you did, but it'd be interesting to see which design performs better when the RPMs are the same.

Glad to hear you got a better chip the second time around!

That board's limited to 1.2v. I have it and regret not dropping a little more. Really good price though, yeah.

Someone with the F6 BIOS said there is a separate offset setting which lets you push the voltage beyond 1.2v that way. I have mine disassembled currently, so can't check. But if you can take a look at yours and see if that's true, that would be great for overclocking.

Well I know what I'm doing tonight. I'll have an answer for y'all in about three hours.

If it's true then that bundle is just about the deal of the century.
