Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 175

post #1741 of 4581
I haven't read the whole thread yet, but does the G3258 work OC-wise when installed on an Asus H81M-E after a bios update? Also, do I need to install small heatsinks/heatspreaders on the VRMs, or just have a decent cooling setup?

Thanks!

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

I want to do this to mine.
I think it may be a dud as well. I'm 1.35 volts to hold 4.5GHz and I don't consider it reliable. It's not really a temp issue, any time mine blue screens the temps don't clear 70.

Nice clean delid. I would relap that IHS the proper way though and not use any buffing compounds as it would interfere with thermal transfer from what I understand.... Yes you should see copper on all four corners of the IHS as lapping should result a nearly perfect flat surface. Lapping is meant to create two flatter surfaces to leave less gap as compared to concave/convex IHS from the factory. In the end you can make it as shiny as you want but if it is still an uneven surface, then the only thing you did was make it shiny and not help in the effort to drop temps...

These are a devil's canyon cpu right? Aren't they suposed to have better compound from manufacturing than other chips? Is the delid worth it on these? I'll do mine if it's worth it, my b85 mobo seems to be the weak spot right now, 3.8 stable is the best i can do, heat is no problem.
Anybody else getting stuck this low? I'm contemplating buying a z97 board but only if it's gonna get me to where I can run around 4.4-4.5 24.7.365.

The G3258 came out right around the time of The Devil's Canyon, but actually Intel calls it The Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition. The z97 has much better power delivery options, which might make your cpu better.

actually gigabyte took a big step backwards with power delivery.

The ud3h z87 is 8 true phases. With z97 u have to get gaming 5 or ud5 to get that good.

The midrange boards kinda stepped back. The msi gaming boards are not fully digital. They are digital/analog hybrid.

I'm thinking of the ASROCK Z97M OC. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z97M%20OC%20Formula/


Seems like a good board, 8 power phases. No idea the quality of them.

Like I said the goal is to run 4.4+ 24/7. Think that board is a good choice or do I need to step it up to something more high end?

thats a good mobo power delivery wise. Its 6 true digital phases but with doublers to 12 phase.
