Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 145

post #1441 of 4581
What do you guys think the most reliable budget board for this system is? Looking to do a 4.4 GHZ oc maybe 4.5 top

z97 pc mate hands down... Solid @ $40 microcenter bundle.biggrin.gif
post #1443 of 4581
If I could choose my m/b again i wouldn't get the msi pc mate... it doesn't overclock as well compared to others, these guys tested on the i7:

http://www.hardware.fr/articles/903-18/overclocking.html

The main problem seems to be it only has 3 true phases for the vrm, get an asus/gb/asrock mb if you can find it for a similar price.

The link you posted is for the previous generation Z87 boards. Pretty hard to beat a MSI Z97 PC Mate along with a Pentium chip for under $100 bucks if Microcenter still has this deal.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1505322/pentium-g3258-and-msi-z-97-pc-mate-for-99-omg

Even if it overclocks 100 MHz less than the competition, are you going to notice a 2% difference in CPU speed? Probably not.

Edit - The sale continues.

yes it is the z87 pc mate, but the vrm design is exactly the same as the z97. keep in mind that not everybody lives near a microcenter, i paid $130 for mine because my other computer just died and it was the only z97 board available at that price range, if i could buy it now i would get a different brand.

Stock cooler is good all the way to 4.8ghz if ur chip can do that on < 1.45

It will crash @ bench.. but if it's stable.. the cooler can handle it, because you'll never run into real life situations that is the equivalent of small-ftt on Prime95:rolleyes:


also.. Intel burn test does not heat up this cpu due to missing avx extension.. so... I keep having to repeat this to people.
Sorry, but this is so wrong on so many levels. Get some real experience under your belt before you start advising people.

lol ever heard of different versions of ibt, like for example the new one which uses avx, and older ones that still use linpack, and works perfectly on these chips, don't spread misinformation

Every chip hits a wall somewhere. To get to 4.5 from 4.4 on mine, it's a big jump in voltage and not worth the 100MHz since I use it 24/7.

Is OCCT with large data set also good for these chips to determine their stability?
