Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 184

post #1831 of 4581
Mmmm, i put the memory (dominator gt 1866 OC@2200@1.65V@10-11-10-27) in another rig and it is ok, i reinstalled windows with another 4gb single channel but at the end of the process, sbam! Crash!.
I noticed that i could run wprime with no problems but maxxmem made the g3258system crash. Think the memory controller has gone at this point!

Unless there are problems with the motherboard, maybe i played too much with pch voltage and other small voltages to achive stability... I think i messed all UP!

Delidded the good chip earlier, gave it a good clean up and decided to put a little AS5 between the dye and IHS just to see if everyone blabbering about only using clu to get cool temps was true. Slapped my lapped copper IHS on and everything booted up fine. Overclocked to my max settings as before and ran IBT to compare load temps, I saw a drop of 20c for a max load temp of 60c!

Booyao. Very pleased, I'll post pics of the process in a bit.

I've come to understand that clp/clu is to get best temp drops possible and TIM like as5 cant handle the heat on the die and dry up compared to clu. I can't imagine as5 being any worse off than that stock cake like gunk I found on the back of my IHS... Maybe someone else could chime in on this.

Here is some eye candy:

Both of the chips delidded with the IHS from the dud chip I planned to use on the left.


Close up of the costa rica chip delidded


All mounted up in my board ready for action.


Close up, i wish i had a better camera than the one on my phone frown.gif


A little pea of AS5 for good luck wink.gif. I also used AS5 between the dye and IHS just to see if what people say about it being terrible as an on dye tim, which in this case was absolutely false.

the ihs is slid over far too one side. Be careful. that was how my my friend cracked a die. it only caught one side when he  started to lock it down.

That may be true, I'm not saying it's not I also heard that it can't perform as well with very fast heat changes. Considering I'll be getting my CLU in the next 3-4 days it'll work for now.

I just noticed that too looking at the pics, I'm not touching it at all from here on out until I replace the dye tim so I'm gonna say it's safe now that it's locked into place and all mounted up. But thanks for mentioning it. honestly when I get the CLU i might just reglue it and call it done.

I found that delidding is a good solutiononly only for liquid cooling. My first g3258 was a really bad overclocker, 2hrs after delivery was delidded but with air cooling nothing magical happend.
With liquid I OCed same frequency with -0.2V same cpu, but cannot OC much more than air speed cooler.

My advice is: do you have a good OC chip? Are you going to put it under a LC block? Than absolutely delid it! But keep in mind: a delid improves temps which is great but no extra headroom for OC!

Hey guys, I just got my 2nd g3258 and it seems to do a much better job this time around than the first one. I've got it overclocked to 4.0ghz at 1.1v (might can go lower, bios and windows froze at 1.050) and my temps are 60c under prime95. I'm thinking about just leaving it here. How much performance gain in games will I see by going up to 4.5ghz?

Few weeks back I checked for peformance in a CPU-bound scenario (playing Grid2). Turns out core clock is not really that important in this test. Cache and memory settings play the greatest role in increasing performance.

Now whether or not these findings apply to all games, I don't know.

My MSI H97 motherboard wont let me go past 1.296v on the CPU Core. Anyone know how to bypass the voltage limit?
