Congrats!
L4 batch huh? judging by the user experiences in the The Intel Devil's Canyon Owners Club, a couple of those L4 batch chips are renowned to clock well for the i5s and i7s, I'm not sure how well the Pentiums fare though, I wish you luck in the silicon lottery! thumb.gif

"safe" 24/7 limits:

1.3 vcore
1.15 vring
1.9 VCCIN

What's the vring setting on my mobo? MSI Z97 PC Mate.

That one I can't find.

Would this be a good board consider the price for g3258?

I can't wait and see what I can do. What's safe voltages?

I believe it's 1.3-1.35v, others have said 1.35v is a little more risky though.

I ran 1.6 on mime VERY last night briefly for an OC test, and the chip isn't fried yet. For a 24/7 safe voltage, I'd say 1.35 max, with 1.3 being a safer bet.

I LOVE YOU, BROTHER!!!

It's just as you've mentioned! As soon as I turned on ThrottleStop and disabled BD PROCHOT, my multiplier got unlocked and finally started running at normal core speed while running Prime95!

Does this mean I should RMA the current mobo and ask for a replacement since it confirms that there is a faulty sensor?

Thanks again, man! thumb.gif

When this happens, it can send a signal to your CPU which tricks the CPU into thinking it is too hot so the multiplier drops to 8 and it will sit there whether your CPU core temperature is hot or not. This signal path is called BD PROCHOT which stands for bi-directional processor hot. Hardly any motherboards let you access this in the bios but you can try running ThrottleStop. It lets you disable the BD PROCHOT signal path so your CPU should run at its rated speed. Post some screenshots if you are still having problems. You can download version 6 from TechPowerUp but the latest version is stable and has some more features for the 4th Gen CPUs.

Do a Google search for BD PROCHOT if you don't know what I am talking about. This is a common problem on many desktop and mobile motherboards.

Thanks for giving ThrottleStop a try. It is a popular tool in the laptop community but I have had a hard time introducing desktop users to it. One of the mods at OCN asked me to stop talking so much about it so it has been difficult getting any feedback. If you post a screen shot or two, I won't get in trouble. smile.gif

It is usually a bad sensor on the motherboard that causes this problem. BD PROCHOT is not well understood so if you RMA it, the tech might see that it boots up and think it is fine. If you can get a replacement without a big hassle, go for it. If not, you can live with this problem by disabling BD PROCHOT. ThrottleStop has a feature so the program will exit 5 seconds after it starts. This lets you use the program to set up your CPU and then it will automatically exit. Just add this to the ThrottleStop.INI configuration file.

ExitTime=5

and you can add ThrottleStop to your startup sequence using the Task Scheduler. You might need to run ThrottleStop again after you use Hibernate or Stand By mode.

Glad this worked for you. Now you can get back to overclocking.
