Planning to get a 750ti ftw for this build and a bitfenix prodigy case.

Recommendations?

A z97 board, as far as I know, would be better for overclocking.

Also, joining based on recent finding of this club: http://valid.x86.fr/fxagkx

My voltage feels a bit high, based on other people's numbers.

Would this be a good itx mobo for G3258?

This one is batch number 3418B987! The chip looks good and these validations were done with a x40 uncore. Only thing is the chip bugs at - 50C around about so not benched under Ln2. frown.gif

Alright so I'm stable at 4.6Ghz@1.27v under XTU stress/benchmark, and i ran prime blend last night.


I'm now trying to adjust ring voltage... but I can't tell if HWmonitor is reporting the voltages incorrectly? I tried lowering LLC/Ring to 1.265v but HWmonitor is reporting 1.295... And if I just leave it at auto it stays at 1.28v.

HWmonitor:


Bios:


Also, what's the safe ring voltage limit?

Please review my Mini ITX build

CPU: Intel G3258
MOBO: ASRock H97M-ITX/ac or ASUS z97i Plus ITX. Which one is better?
GPU: R9 270x or 750 ti? Can't decide on what GPU
SSD: 256
HDD:1TB
RAM:8gb
PSU:750w Seasonic x750
Case: Fractal Node 304 or any similar ITX case?

I would go for the Z97 if you can, that way you have the Z97 chipset and likely more overclocking options IIRC. (Don't quote me on that though).
The R9 270X is faster than the 750 Ti, but it will draw more power, are you striving towards a low power machine or are you not really bothered?

Another thing, what ram kit are you going for?

There's also a review by eTeknix: ASUS Z97I-PLUS (LGA 1150) Motherboard Review
A few things from a review done by eTeknix:

Cons
Quote:
Rear I/O needs better antenna placement
Audio could be improved with ALC 1150
TPM header seems like a waste of space
Heatsinks get quite hot, especially under overclocking

Doesn't really matter for the power draw cause I have my 750w PSU lying around.

I'll just get the asus z97i ITX mobo then?

Any 8gb ram that will be on sale or a good deal. Do you recommend any ram for my spec?

Also I chose r9 270x because I could get it used same price or lower than a brand new 750ti.
