Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 174

post #1731 of 4581
Anyone have Asrock's Z97 Anniversay board and try their automatic overclock (P on boot)? What settings does it use on 4.2Ghz?

Mine runs 47, 42, 2400mhz there's no ram limitation to speak of .rolleyes.gif

Although I do see the XMP 1.2 but I dont see 1.3. In the bios it says 1600mhz if I'm using the 1.2 XMP preset but still shows up at 1333mhz when it boots up to Windows.


Did you update your bios..

Yeah, most recent is 1.20 firmware for the h97m pro4. I had to in order to OC the 3258. I did some more reading and few sites stated that OC'ing the 3258 reduces it ram speed?

Not sure if its true but I cant change my DRAM voltage

Just curious if there is a formula for determining how much vIN is needed with the vCore and vRing that's being used?

On my G3258 4.3Ghz @ 1.2v, uncore 4Ghz @ 1.075v, I'm using vIN 1.724v. Getting annoying having to stress test multiple different variables + RAM.

None of the H81 and B85 chipset MSI and Gigabyte motherboards I've used can go past 1400Mhz when running the G3258 (when overclocked at least). I always assumed you needed a Z-series chipset to go past 1400Mhz when overclocking the G3258. Non-z series chipsets also apparently disable adaptive voltage when overclocking.

set up a new pc for a friend of mine with the g3258 and a gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H board. at 4.2 it wouldn't even show bios. at 4.0 and 3.9 it would freeze just booting into windows. at 3.8 it would crash on programs as simple as spotify.

he said hes not having any problems with 3.6 but that has yet to be tested. cooling is stock.

part list here here: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/F3RG3C

the voltage as far as i know was unchanged as its set to 1.195v from the factory. all that was changed was the multiplier. worst overclocking g3258? i feel like the mobo is showing its price.. didn't find any bios update info at gigabyte either.
I'm running the same Gigabyte board, and have my G3258 @ 4.3Ghz with 1.2v (left on AUTO. This board won't go past 1.2v with this chip anyways).

Latest BIOS is F6, available on Gigabyte's site.

I don't think that's a HARD limitation of h81 b85..

It depends on the board... because if you look at some of the fancier b85 boards.. the layout and stuff is identical to the z9 counterpart..

I'd assume those boards will probably have more complete overclocking features..


The issue now is that there's no motivation for manufacturers to retune all their bios to support the anniversary g3258 outta no where.

Woke up very early this morning with nothing to do, so i went ahead and delidded the dud chip :-):



Went with the razorblade method took about a minute with the help of a hair dryer. Lapped the IHS with a grey scotchbright pad then used buffing compound to get it to an a mirror finish, inside of IHS is also polished wink.gif



I'm thinking of doing a direct dye mount on it and seeing how much cooler it runs for the heck of it. Can i use clear nail polish to seal the vrms? And would AS5 work between dye and waterblock?

Soon I'll delid my good chip with a vise, between clp and clu which is better? Im savinh the polished ihs to put on the good chip but Im not planning on regluing it. Does it matter if the edges on top of the ihs are barely showing copper? Must have been from the scotch bright pad, the surface itself is good though
