SO I'm not throwing money away for a few extra hundred mhz, but to accomodate for several other upgrades.

Incidentally, the one I posted was my first Pentium too. Oh well, rolleyes because I just told somebody to sell all the stuff he just got biggrin.gif
That was a serious suggestion nonetheless.

Oh and i assume you have updated bios smile.gif
Just went through the bios again and nothing I can do to lower cpu vcore at idle. I pm'd Dotbeta who has the same board and it is an issue with his as well. Im not to concerned about it atm because it Folds 24/7 anyway so I won't let it have a break biggrin.gif

OK so I finally installed my 3258 that I got at Fry's for 55 bucks. Here's where I am so far

Gigabyte z87n itx
2x4gb gskill sniper 1600
Antec Kuhler 620 w/ 2 noctuas in p/p

Cpu 45x
Uncore 40x
Vcore 1.35
Vrin 1.9

Boots Windows fine and am able to do standard htpc stuff. Running x264 stability test now and all is going OK so far. Temps are hovering in the low 70s. Considering this is in a small Antec isk600 case I'm pretty happy with those Temps. Idles about 40 though.

Edit: how many loops of x264 will get me through the night?

I don't think there are free games which are demanding

Try to search Steam for demos of the latest games and recent games

Thanks again to everyone that's been helpful in giving me advice on how to go about my G3258 OC smile.gif.

Tomorrow I'm going to be heading over to my retail store to pick up a Z97 mobo, I've been set on getting the ASUS Z97-A board but looking at their catalog they also have the Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H at the exact same price. This puts me in a pickle because now I'm unsure which board will be the better choice? From an aesthetic point of view I really love the look of the ASUS board with the light gold/bronze VRM heatsinks and yes even the brown pcb is cool with me. The Gigabyte on the other hand has a black pcb which is a plus but has gold heatsinks and ULTRA DURABLE written in as many places as possible, also I can't stand gold.

Granted I don't just buy a board because of it's aesthetics, I've been watching and reading reviews until I'm blue int he face on each board and am having a really hard time deciding so I wanted to get some of your opinions on which you think is better. My most important on my list is overclocking ability and features, second would be gaming "on wifi" and that's all I'll probably be using this rig for lol.

For the record the case I am using is a Fractal Define R4 windowed edition, so it's got a black and white theme going for it as it already is. I have 4 140mm fractal fans in it aside from the H60's 2 SP fans with white rings for a push-pull setup.

ud5 is much superior mobo as far as features and power delivery. I like asus boards for thier fan control though.

Ether boards power deliver is overkill for the pentium so base it off the features/looks.
