Asus z87 plus
Hyper 212
Corsair 4x2gb xms ram
Cx430 psu
GpU??

I am going to loan him one of my 660tis from my main rig probably until I find a good deal on a gpu.

I am thinking 650ti/750/750ti. Really depends what we can find cheap.

An older fermi card would be fine too as the monitor is only 1600x900. He also has a 50inch tv he wants to use some but its older and only 720p.

Sucks because I sold a gtx 460 a few months back that would have been perfect.

That sounds good to me, I have 2 GTX 465 I plan to SLI when I get my Z board but for now just the single one has been more than enough for what I've thrown at it, playing XCOM: EU that I got yesterday runs like a dream. The thing is though the loudest component in my case has got to be the turbine blower on this video card, when under load it sounds like a harrier jet is about to take off in my rig lol, I can't imagine 2 going nuts in there tongue.gif, really kills the whole silent pc theme I'm going for. I might just sell them both and get a 750Ti even though from what I understand the SLI setup would perform better.

What's the benefit of having mem 4 sticks instead of 2?

I had it laying around. Lol.

I would rather run two sticks.

I've got mine working with a r9 270 I picked up for $90 and they seem just about perfectly paired in single player games at 1600x900. 80+ FPS in Shadow Warrior with max everything except medium shadows and no DoF.

This is my g3258 delided with CLU results. idle at 28C and load at 50C.

I can't push the voltage any further cuz I'm using a newegg $75 b85m + G3258 combo. Gigabyte locked the vcore unless I could figure out a way to flash b85m-d3h bios into my b85m-ds3h, I probably won't be able to push the clock any higher.

Shoot me a PM or something if you figure out how to do that 'cause I'm in the same boat. sad-smiley-002.gif

sure. I even tried to flash the b85m-d3h bios but got the bios id mismatch error. Then I tried to see if there's a way to change the bios id unfortunately I still haven't figured it out yet. Maybe we will just wait for gigabyte to release the next bios update.

Been working on 4.4ghz. Made a lot of progress today. Even at 4.3ghz I was doing unnecessary weird stuff. Here is what I learned:

Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5, F5 Bios
UnCores must be set manually to x32 in the bios. - If left at auto it will crash above 3.8ghz. I don't know why. I assume the motherboard is automatically raising this as the cpu goes up?
Above 1.3ghz requires 2.0 VCCIN - This is different then what everybody has been telling me. My chip must be unique. I tested this over and over.
Gigabyte GTL is a great tool
Bios needs .02 more vcore than GTL
My chip sucks compared to others I have seen on here. Requires more voltage but I'm happy to be making progress thumb.gif
I have read guide after guide, been testing all day today.
1.36 core voltage maxes out my stock intel cooler at 88c,

Attached screenshot:

I run G3258 on B85M-P33, the cheapest b85 mobo on local market. It required no update to boot and run flawlessly (B85 support pentiums natively), but it did not OC over stock 32 multiplier before I installed the latest BIOS (as of the end of SEP 2014).
4.4Ghz@1.27V under BOX cooler. http://www.overclock.net/t/1519423/overclocking-g3258-with-out-a-z-type-motherboard#post_23017823
The only difference I've noticed compared with my Z68+3570K is that Intel Extreme Tuning Utility won't OC under windows. This is for breaking super pi records with 5+Ghz OC running for 20 secs. Everything else runs just fine.

I'd recommend the 750ti FTW any day.
Cool & quiet and requires barely any power.
Here's a few benchmarks I ran a couple of weeks ago.
My QX6700 @3.34GHz performs about the same as the Pentium @4.4-4.5GHz

In regards to the RAM. The only benefit is more memory tongue.gif
No but seriously... More modules means more stress on the IMC.

Attached screenshot:

on the gigabyte z87 boards the uncore/cache had to be set manuelly to 100mhz lower than the stock frequency or it would still apply turbo boost to it. Not sure if z97 or bios updates corrected it. It was talked about frequently in the hw oc thread.
