Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 111

post #1101 of 4581
Hey, I got in the newegg deal for the gigabyte h61. I know it's volt capped to 1.2v, which is disappointing, but I'm trying to figure out if it would effect me much since I just plan on using the stock cooler. I mean, how high voltage-wise are people going with the stock cooler, running it 24/7? 1.3? 1.35? What can I expect from a 1.2v overclock?
post #1102 of 4581
Stock cooler is surprising good as its designed to handle up to 85W TDP, I've heard it can handle 4.4/4.5ghz no problems, at 1.2v it should be fine.

True, stock cooler is rated higher than it needs to be. I thought I read it was rated around 93 TDP but I may mistaken. Stock the chip is 50something.

It all depends on the chip but even my "crappy" chip was keeping it around 85*C with stock cooling at 1.31vcore (4.3GHz). It wasn't completely stable but it gives you an idea for not a fantastic chip. Gaming things like LoL, D3, TF2 it kept it in the 60-68*C range at 4.3Ghz.

**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
Gotcha. I been trying to hit 4.8ghz stable but without much success, it'll boot in to windows at 1.35 vid no problems and maybe complete half a 1M superpi run before BSOD, but its not stable at even 1.45 vid with 2.1v vrin, it will be more stable but still give 101 bsod after a while. I think at one point I tried to play dota 2 with 1.48vid and that also gives 101 BSOD after an hour or so, and I don't want to push higher because the motherboard reading gives +0.025 so vcore is above 1.5 alraedy :S I played around to stabilize the memory somewhat but has seemingly had no effect, I even cleaned my old gtx 260 out so it doesn't run at 90c, it runs at only 80c now biggrin.gif so the only thing I haven't payed too much attention to is VRIN, but I've tried up to 2.1v I think, not sure what else I can do xD

I have took some screenies of a few game benchmarks on my Pentium G3258 rig using a high end GPU to show the performance with such hardware. There are 1080p and 1440p results for each test. Hopefully this will be helpful to someone if you're considering buying the G3258 or just useful to compare with an existing system.

The Rig:
CPU --> Intel Pentium G3258
MB ---> ASUS Maximus VII Hero
DDR3 -> 16GB Gskill TridentX
GPU --> Powercolor PCS+ R9 290


All tests were ran using the highest graphics preset and the following frequencys:

CPU clock --> 4.70GHz
Uncore clock --> 4200MHz
DDR3 clock --> 2400MHz
GPU core clock --> 1000MHz
GPU vram clock --> 1300MHz (5200MHz effective)

Got this G3258 up pretty quick. Still a ways to go. This was very quick and dirty.


Offset between uncore and core seems to make a big difference. Haven't messed with mem over stock yet.

very impressive. I'm gonna run some tests on the pentium either some time this weekend. here's dirt showdown on my stock 4770k. the pentium is not far off. my R9 290 is running 1000/1300mhz too.

I haven't had a chance to overclock the pentium or run any benches. it's just serving as a temporary browsing pc for my brother atm.

finally got my FX 4300 to 5ghz at 1.4v on the lowly msi 760GMA-p34 lol, better cooling/heatsink etc....

could the G3258 hang with it? g3258 would still smoke it in single thread I'm sure....

G3258 would still be better. Be careful with that MSI mobo you have.
