Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 142

post #1411 of 4581
Hi

First post in this thread, have to say I’m super impressed with the chip and happy I went with this rather than spending more on an i3. So currently I’m running at 4.4GHz with 1.165V and auto voltage regulation (goes up to about 1.18V under stress). Uncore at 3.2GHz, 1.1V. Tested overnight with x264. Motherboard is MSI B85I, as a note I was able to boot straight away with the G3258 chip and just needed to update to latest BIOS from MSI to overclock. Stock cooling in SG05 mini itx case. My first desktop so my first real go at overclocking.

But… temperatures are getting pretty high. On the x264 run it maxed at 93oC with ambient probably about 27oC. When gaming it goes to maybe 85oC max, though less with some games. The only signs on instability I've really had are with Metro Last Light which black screens or crashes back to windows occasionally. Not sure how much this is related to my OC as seems quite a common problem with the game, what has helped most is turning up the fans on my graphics card (GTX550Ti 2Gb)?

I’m therefore thinking about going for a better cooler and/or doing a delid. Would the cooler or delid be likely to give the best results? Given space in my ITX case I've been looking at the Gamer Storm Gabriel cooler. For the delid could I use Artic Silver 5 (as I already have some) or does it really need to be CLU or similar on the die?

Part of me says find a nice stable and cool 4.3GHz or something and be happy with that, but part of me just wants to see how far it can go wink.gif

Cheers

Hot damn, those are some nice clocks for the given voltage. The temps don't really line up with my experience, though. Running 4.73 @ 1.425v, under a LinPack stress (Intel Burn Test), I only hit 86 max. Provided, I'm in the norther US, so that may contribute, but still.Maybe your airflow isn't very good in the SG05?

Edit: To anyone looking at voltages, they were pretty rough, and not exactly fine-tuned. I was just running to see how far I could get my chip.

I suggest going with an aftermarket cooler before deliding.

Asus opened it up on all thier mobos on official bios too. You download them straight from thier website. http://techreport.com/news/26650/asus-enables-haswell-overclocking-on-non-z-series-motherboards

Do you think ASRock's H81 MBs have BCLK adjustment?

I bet it has non z overclocking with multi unlocked just like my h87 but honestly I do not know for sure.

i got 5-10c drop after delid using the tim that came with my cm212 cooler, as5 will probably work better check out the delid thread. the max i heard of ppl hitting with stock cooler is 4.5

I got 4.73 on my stock cooler, no delidding involved. Guess I got lucky in the silicon lottery. Validation here. Don't mind the voltage, it was a very rough bench.

Edit: Oh, wait, this probably doesn't count. I was doing 1-core clocks for sheer speed.

Eh, I'd dial that voltage back a bit for 24/7 use. You won't lose any performance at 4.4 ghz vs 4.9 ghz in gaming.

Max temps before: 54c w/ 70f ambient.

Max temps after: 44c w/ 70f ambient.

In the end, I'd say it was worth it. Load temps that rival my previous idle temperature are nothing to balk at. Plus, I have plenty of CLU left over for when I upgrade in the future.


U went through the trouble of delid just to do 4.2 ?? tuzki_022.gif
