Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 340

post #3391 of 4572
No stability testing was done from what I read. That leaves reviews like this one rather misleading to those who are looking to get this chip and expecting it to do high clocks on lower volts. Most reviewers try to make them selves look good or over sell what ever they're reviewing, unless its a flame review...

Agreed, I remember finding it hard to be objective when I first started writing reviews. You have to get over the fact that someone sent you a review sample for free, really look at the product and try to make it fail. Its even worse when you are reviewing something you payed for, no one wants to feel like they bought a lemon. Reviews in general can only tell you a small amount about the product, often times review samples are hand picked or tested in unrealistic systems, who buys an R7 240 for an i7 5960x system for example. Ultimately it will be colored by the reviewer and their test system. I fully expected I would hit 4.8ghz with my g3258 after reading all the reviews I could find on it yet I can barely get 4.5 stable within acceptable voltage and heat. I will be getting a new PSU soon so I will try for some higher OCs when it gets here but I suspect it will make little difference.

Also whats a good program to watch your fps while in a game? I know there's fraps but any others?

I use rivatuner statistics server. Very handy and customizable for monitoring not only fps but also cpu+gpu clock speeds, memory usage, temps and so on.

Woah, i've been away from this thread for a while. So far, i've settled for 4.4 Ghz stable, under around or under 63C overnight @ 1.27v (Probably overkill, but I'd rather have more heat than instability; I develop software).

I haven't fully figured my chip yet, and I probably won't until I have an i7 on the way. I'm not really keen on damaging it.

Anyone know how to overclock the iGPU memory.. I've got core running at 1800Mhz all good but can't seem to figure out how people are raising memory?

Anyone here playing Shadow of Mordor ?

I noticed that I get frequent stuttering with the recent update/patch

When the game was just launched, it ran fine on my Pentium G3258 + GTX 750 Ti. Now, it's annoying to play due to the frequent stuttering

I tried to use Low preset and Medium preset for the image quality but there is still frequent stuttering

Though, the game's built-in benchmark runs fine.

It runs buttery smooth for me but I have not patched it in a while so I don't know about the latest patch. TBH its just sitting on my HDD like most of the newer games I own. I know on the "very high" preset I get locked 60fps on my 960 with occasional drops to the high 30s when a lot of particle effects are going on. What you are describing sounds like poor CPU optimization with the new patch. Is your CPU near constantly at or near 100% usage?

Overclock your RAM, there is no dedicated iGPU memory.

If you are not using a Z97 board you may not be able to clock the ram higher than 1400mhz, I see you are using a Z87 though so you may be OK. My B85 won't let me clock any higher than that, luckily I am using a discrete GPU. But yeah, your IGPU uses shared system RAM so its clock is determined by that, I would try and get to about 2000-2133mhz seeing as your RAM in your sig seems to be rated at that @CL9. Good luck thumb.gif

Thanks though it's not making sense, it's for fun anyway. My RAM is @ 2200Mhz but vRAM is @ 1466.7MHz with no way (from what I see) to change it. I don't think there's a difference between Z87 vs. Z97.
