H81 and B85 motherboards can overclock these chips, but like Konk said, I'd go with a board that was meant for overclocking hardware wise.

I tried the Pentium with the Gigabyte G1 Sniper B5 (B85 Express chipset)
It works,it can OC, but....youre memory can get max 1600Mhz on the B85 chipset, so youre kinda memory bound.

I've just realized how much my GPU was bottlnecking in my PlanetSide 2 video, this CPU worked it really hard when it was at 1280MHz.

It's going to be interesting to see how it performs with a GTX 870/970, I'm hoping that will be a card with power in-between a 780 and a Titan.

I think when I get a new GPU I'll push the chip upto 4.6-4.7GHz.

I'm in the process of converting some gameplay from Battlefield 4, Just Cause 2 Multiplayer and Saints Row 3.

From Battlefield 4 I have a combination of single-player and multiplayer gameplay, the single-player gameplay is from the start of the game and the multiplayer gameplay is on Golmud Railway with 49+ players.

Here's a nice list of low dollar boards that can overclock the Pentium G3258.

Update on my 5Ghz:

http://hwbot.org/submission/2626456_koekwau5_wprime___32m_pentium_g3258_11sec_437ms

Can't let it run faster.
Needs a delid to gain couple more Mhz, but only much more to gain with LN2.

For now I'm done and gonna put this little fella in my new mediacenter =)

Alright, so I'm building my first computer Friday when the parts come in. Kinda confused how to overclock. On my laptop, I just used Intel XTU to undervolt stuff. On desktop, it seems like theres options in the bios, using Intel XTU, or using whatever utility the mobo comes with. Which one is the best or actually works with the G3258? Is there a overclocking the G3258 for dummies guide somewhere you guys can link me to?

The Haswell overclocking guide will work for the G3258. Also, I like using Intel XTU for on the fly voltage tweaking, and then I set the stable settings in stone via the UEFI.
