Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 118

PS: You're at 1.3 vcore, not 1.275. wink.gif

Maximus VI Extreme bumps the voltage a lil.
And I'm quickly trying to find 4.7Ghz+.
That why I say "seems' to be stable.

And also my 4790K's do complete X264 more easily than Prime95!
Prime95 especially version 28.5 is a challenge for Haswell quad-core processors.
Dunno about this Pentium.

Edit: It looked so promising but this one ain't doing 5Ghz no matter what voltage. Even 1.55V won't boot to Windows. Temp's aint the problem.
Gonna send this one in via Intel Tuning Plan and hope for a better one.
Grr want to break the 5Ghz wall

Just joined OC because of this processor lol. I must've got a really good chip because I OC'd it last night to 4.2 Ghz @ 1.2v and I had it running stable on aida64 for about an hour before I had to go to bed. Never got above 72 C either so that's good! thumb.gif

Also forgot to mention that this is on the stock cooler since I forgot to buy thermal paste for my CoolerMaster T4 tongue.gif Rookie mistake

Doesn't matter at all. 26.6, 27.9 or 28.5.. same load due to the lack of AVX support. Only difference would be the default 3min duration for testing different fft sizes in 28.5. Personally, I keep using 27.9 with both the i7 and Pentium.

Oh that's a shame, it looked to be really impressive, I hadn't seen 4GHz at such a low voltage before.
Maybe it's because most people aim for 4.2GHz+ so it's not really familiar to me.

Was the 1.050v-1.056v stable?

Welcome!

Cooling overkill? Never!!

Will be getting better fans with time. GPU to be cooled once I find the time to mount my mcw82 and all the ram sinks smile.gif tubing 1/2" x 3/4"

I tried that part of the game. 1080p, Very High quality, Normal tessellation, Normal motion blur, 16x AF, no SSAA. no PhysX. GPU usage was ~97% and CPU usage was ~80%. Frame rate is ~45 fps

Maybe because HD 5770 was too slow for it ?

or maybe because of the driver ?

I had a heck of a time mounting my MCW82 blocks on my 7950's. The mounting bracket would not line up with the holes in the cards PCB and after numerous talks with Swiftech that didn't get me anywhere I ended up just using the mounts from my old MCW60 blocks and was able to mount them that way.

Hope yours fits your 7970...

Well I already had 3 of them running on mcw82's. here is something I posted some time back. I have the mcw82 non 7970 version. Get the nvidia brackets and just align the holes and drill!

I also bought Copper Sheet Metal - 3" x 3"- 24ga 16oz .021 - 24 Gauge 16 Ounce from ebay. Cut to size so I put it in between the 7970's core and the mcw 82. Temps were good and a little better than a EK full waterblock and XSPC waterblock. I invested in a bunch of copper heatsinks (enzotech and swiftech) and I also bought these . Some people will say not to put that copper plate between the core and regular mcw82 block but screw it! I did and temps were good and never had problems. I had 3 together with a Swiftech Triple SLI / Crossfire Bridge Block.

Buying a new block every time you upgrade cards is a pain in the a$$

Yup = )

For the one who asked to run X264 runs, here is 4Ghz @ 1.050V:


Edit: Anyone interested in this processor? Or else I'm gonna send it in RMA / Intel Tuning Plan and hope for the best.

For a mid-range GPU, looks like G3258 @ 4.0 GHz will do

I don't know if the same could be said when using something faster like GTX 770




BENCHMARK METHOD:

Tomb Raider - I loaded finished game save file. I fast traveled to Village Outlook camp and did a 45-sec run using FRAPS benchmark

Hitman: Absolution - In the built-in benchmark, I did a 45-sec FRAPS benchmark right after exiting the door
