The reason I think this trade is bad, is because the cache increase gives you ~0 % performance boost.. It also doesn't affect Memory overclock..


You're better off just saving some heat on cache, and buy a pair of 2400mhz ram.. for m0re snappiness instead

Thanks a bunch for your tip! I not only had to raise my vring to sustain stability at x44, but I also had to raise VCCIN and vcore a bit as well. Any tips on overclocking the ram?

Set ring multiplier to 42 and vring to 1.150 as u recommended, runs perfect wink.gif.

So what's the high end of temps acceptable for this chip? Lower 80s?

From what I understand 80's is pushing it, 90-100c will begin to see throttling. Anything below 80c is a safe place to be.

Intel sets the thermal throttling temperature to 100C for the G3258. If your CPU starts throttling before this temperature then there is something wrong with your motherboard. The voltage regulators might be overheating. There is nothing wrong with a peak core temperature of 90C while doing some Prime95 testing. Most software you end up running is not going to push your CPU this hard so your temps will be fine when running any real world apps.

Thats almost like using a noctua nh-d14 on this chip.

definitely overkill. even my h100i is overkill.

I'm currently using an h60 to cool my G3258. Would upgrading to an H100i be a waste of money? Would i even see cooler temps under load?

remember to disable spread spectrum, disable all energy saving options, windows must be in performance mode (power options--> performance mode).

Try to reinstall correctly the cooler if temps rise too much.


I'm running AIDA64 now, at 4,1GHz, VCore @ 1325, vccin @ 1900, fans at max. Also set windows to performance mode.
Max temp at 80C so far, but it mostly hovers around 74C. Where can i find Spread spectrum on my MSI board? Its not listed in the manual, and google isnt being nice.

AFAIK spread spectrum isn't in the MSI BIOS, at least not from what I've seen on my MSI board.

When i was about to give up trying to OC my G3258 on a H81 motherboard .. i finally managed to do it!!!

The problem was with the bios flashing, for some reason it wasn't being flashed completly right with etiflash and Q-flash, after forcing a whole bios flash with FPT (-rewrite and -f switches) i was able to boot into windows.

I also had to use a beta bios i got from Gigabyte to be able to set the VCore higher than 1.2v .

Here is a proof of my G3258 running at 4,4GHz



Almost 8h... i'm going to run it for 24h before i call it 100% stable (it wasnt with 1.3v VCore), i know the core temperatures are on the limit but i guess it should be fine.


CPU Clock Ratio: 44
Mem Multiplier: 13.33
Advanced CPU Core Settings: Everything on Auto (even C states)
K OC: Enabled

CPU VRIN Voltage: 1.9v
CPU Vcore: 1.4v

As a last note, my 1600MHz ram can get to 1400MHz with default values and XMP profile (even tho this processor only supports 1333), i know the gain from 1333Mhz is not appreciable but just for fun i will try later if it is also stable at 1400MHz.

I figure its time I tipped my hat to everyone... Been reading on these forums a few years now. Recently sold my 8350 @5.0 and sabertooth990fx board and replaced them both with a G3258 and ASUS Z97-AR and I have never looked back.
So far im at 4.9 stable 1.39 core and 1.96 VCCIN with uncore still at stock. After seeing how much better 4.9 performs compared to even 4.8 (in terms of gains overclocking from 4.7-4.8) im a bit curious what is considered safe for 24/7 on both vcore and vccin?
Im still working on trying to tighten up the voltage although I dont think its going to be able to go much lower...
