Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 156

post #1551 of 4581
Hey all,

I am building a budget rig for my little brother and i was going to use the G3258 and hopefully overclock it a bit. I am planning on using the Gigabyte GA-H81M-H as the MoBo and a R7 270x. (Full Build-list below)

My question is, will the Gigabyte GA-H81M-H be able to overclock the G3258?

the msi/asrock/asus h81 motherboards do overclock. I have not seen it personally on the gigabyte but I would be shocked if they left it locked with everyone else open.

I think it will.
You need at least 4 cores with those fast graphics cards.
Also it doesn't have AVX which is also a huge bottleneck for some games.

I'm running a 690 (practically x2 770 2GB cards), and yes, there is quite a bit of bottleneck in high-intensity scenes in modern games, but I can still play 2560x1440 consistently, and with minimal stuttering. So yes, there is bottleneck, and it is sometimes noticeable, but not to quite the same extent as you'd normally expect.

It can but the GA-H81M-H limits Vcore to 1.2v, which can put a real cramp on the overclock if you get a mediocre or bad chip. Have a look at the MSI H81M-P33.

Even without avx Grid 2 chugs along. QHD, one of the 690 gpus going, and probably 90fps maxed out. If that's what he's worried about, he shouldn't be.

Hi guys,
I just replaced my i5 4570 with this baby, and i'm impressed! Matches i5 in almost every game that i play.
I also took the time to compare them in games, so i run some in-game benchmarks, here are the results with min, max and avg fps:



Also, i added peak cpu and gpu usage, to see if there is any bottleneck... as you can see G2358 is hammered by Hitman and Grid 2.
