I remember us chatting about using the spacer when I was upgrading from a 7850 awhile back and I could have just used my MCW60's, but nnnoooo I went out and bought the 82's and had a hell of a time...lol

@TopicClocker; let it run all loops. Nice speed at low voltage!

Maybe because HD 5770 was too slow for it ?

or maybe because of the driver ?

Wow really? that's some really nice frames there!

Must be the 5770 being slow or the drivers, what baffled me is how it came from high utilization and 60+ fps to 20fps and low utilization. thinking.gif
I need to find my 6850.

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

Well, 4Ghz would be enough on a mid range GPU if you're maxing games out, but most people lower the settings a bit to get closer to 60 or beyond and 4Ghz won't cut it.

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

Nice! I'm currently stable at 4.5 @ 1.25 vcore. I'm going to fine tune it tonight and see how low I can get the voltage.

Thought I'd pop in, just put the PC together on a makeshift test rig yesterday...
EVGA Z97 Stinger
G3258 @ ~4.1Ghz @ 1.048v
First time overclocking an Intel chip. I'll try it with some other stress programs and test overnight.

Welcome, that's an impressive clock there for that voltage!

I need to find out what's the lowest voltage I can do 4.1GHz with.

I feel a competition comming up wink.gif

Mines running 4.7Ghz on 1.4V:

Man that sucks! Its goona be a pain to sell those MCW82-7900. Then you will have to buy new ones once you upgrade frown.gif
BTW the swiftech SLI connectors give it a nice clean look!

I'm running a g3258 on a Gigabyte Z97 board with 8gb of RAM, and a Noctua NH-C14.

I'm wondering if I have a bottom of the barrel chip, as I can't seem to get it even over 4 ghz stable, despite 1.32 V. Sometimes, it's so unstable that it'll freeze within the bios. I have the multiplier at 40, bas clock at 100mhz, and the load-line calibration set for "turbo" already.

First time trying to OC on a gigabyte board. I even tried the "EasyTune" software and even the light lama OC to 4.0 ghz was unstable. Should I just chalk this chip up as a loss? Might just buy another g3258 and try my luck again. I could always put this one in my parents computer and run it at stock with the stock cooler and all.
