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...




You lucky bastard! :-)))
I want a g3258 like yours. How much volts @5.0GHz??

It was my old 8350 that was at 5.0 @ 1.51v. The g3258 is sitting at 4.9 right now @ 1.389 vcore and 1.96 vccin. This is my second g3258. I previously had one that did 4.7 @1.335 vcore and 1.85 vccin but would not boot at 4.8 with less than 1.4 on the core and 2.1 vccin and was never stable so I sold it to a buddy who was impressed with it and got this second chip which has impressed me so far. Both chips are costa rican but different batch. The current 4.9 chip is batch 341B986. I may try for 5.0-5.2 later on, but for now im pressing on getting a decent voltage to keep 4.9 my 24/7 clock...

When I pick up my ASUS Z97 board I'll be able to exceed 1.9 VCCIN, I can't exceed it on this H81M-P33 which is a huge bummer or else I'd be able to easily see a stable 4.8 - 4.9ghz clock. I can boot into 4.8ghz on a vccin of 1.9 and 1.4 vcore, but if I stress test it, it will bsod after a littler while.

I almost went with the ASUS H97 myself but I figured there would be things missing along the lines of LLC, ability to handle more volts/heat and ram speed. All of which seem to be true, plus I have some walking room if I ever decide to go K series haswell or maybe broadwell if there is enough reason to persuade me. The basis of this setup was initially to get me off of AMD and its dead platform, also allowing me to step into intel and get a handle on overclocking with a chip that wont bust my wallet if I break it.

idk. I'm running my chip at 4.4/4.0 @ 1.2v and I had been idling at 40degC and hitting about 60degC under load when ambient was in the high 70s to low 80s degF. Now ambient is lower and i'm seeing stuff like 34-36 degC idle. This is all with the h100i fans in Quiet mode. In a corsair 250D with the intake fan at 0rpm at idle and a sapphire 290x tri-x at 20% fan speed at idle. In other words there is very little airflow at idle.

Your mileage may vary, esp if you're running faster clocks and esp if you're running more voltage. A lot of people here are running nearly 10% faster clock and pushing well over 10% higher voltage than I am so they would be generating a fair bit more heat. Personally I am looking for silence and lower power (I have basically all power saving options enabled other than using a constant voltage) so I went with these more modest settings.
Still, given how capably the h100i handles what I have it's pretty obvious that it's overkill for this chip, even if you're pushing it smile.gif The simple fact is this chip is lower power so there isn't a ton of heat to dissipate smile.gif

Ehh. IBT will not tell u if your pentium is stable. use x264. My "stable" with p95 or IBT is always crashed by x264 test. try something like 20 runs is nice but 80 (24h) is rock stable. i recommend high priority too. i had normal with HWinfo opened (24h) but it crashed after 10h with high.

and x264 runs cooler. I go with 50 loops then run xtu bench a few times.

IBT is just to find a general stability while trying to reach higher clocks and lower voltages without wasting so much time while increasing clock speeds(I try and bench before running test to see if gain is even worth reaching stability)... Along with what I have gathered from other people though P95 is too tough and overly sensitive on these chips causing a need for more voltages than you typically would need for 24/7 at a said clock. Please correct me if I'm wrong though. I've had to up voltages since that post and am pushing "max safe" 1.4 vcore and 2.0 vccin so now I'm looking at dropping back to 4.8.

I might buy one of these to run in my NAS to upgrade the Celeron G1820 in there. Should be able to do 4.0 in my server case with Noctua L9i no problem...
But I kind of want to delid it and overclock the crap out of it in my main rig first! lol
