Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 40

Or more likely I'm screwing something up. I need to re-read the Haswell OC guide to see if I'm missing something obvious.


With a MSI z97 PC Mate, my g3258 is max'ing out pretty low in comparison to everyone else's. It chokes at 4.5ghz so I've been trying to maximize 4.4 and below.

Batch #3418C013
Made in Costa Rica


OC 4.4ghz @ 80c
core voltage 1.385v frown.gif
processor cache ratio 40x
processor cache voltage 1.20v



I have a EVO 212 doing push/pull, average temps are 32-35c at night and 36-39c daytime (it's hot where I live).
My power supply is a Corsair CX430.
My GPU for now is a XFX 6670 1gb gddr5.
I've got 16gb 1866 kingston hyperx beast ram.

This mobo isn't exactly the best (hdmi/one USB port don't work). I was going to go back to MicroCenter to exchange it anyways and see if I could get a MSI Z97 u3 instead.



I'm attaching a screenshot from my Intel ETU. I'd love to get up to an OC-stable 4.5/4.6 and with less voltage. Any ideas?

You're not alone. My chip needs about the same 1.38v for 4.5GHz to be fully stable or I get RSOD when gaming... anyone else had this with the G3258.

I wish there was more consistency with CPU's. Every Sandy Bridge CPU I had (lots of them) were very consistent with their clock to voltage ratio. Ivy and Haswell are all over the place. The G3258 I had was rock solid 4.5 @ 1.252 (1.25 in bios) using the MSI PC Mate board from Microcenter.

Hey, new G3258 owner. It isn't installed yet, waiting for some new parts. Delidding is complete though. After trying all methods, vise-only is the quickest and safest. Batch# 3418C015.

the board overvolts by 0.2v keep that in mind if you push higher..

I own this board as well.

Im seeing volts all over the place on this thread and other threads, I can do 4.4GHz at 1.246v, and 4.5GHz seems to want quite a bit more volts, im testing 1.285v currently and 4.5GHz seems pretty stable.

Would you happen to be altering the other voltages by any chance to increase stability at lower voltages?

Could you tell me specifically what you are referring to as the 'unused stuff' to disable? I left the vast majority of settings in the Intel ETU alone.


Serial port for example, parallel port, onboard audio if you got a sound card, that sorta thing.

My board was undervolting the ram by 0.2v LOL.. so yea people should double check the memory voltage.. apparently this voltage droops as well wink.gif

I stopped using it as I didn't particularly like the CPU for my needs. But, the only thing I adjusted was the multiplier and voltage. I didn't and never do mess with anything else. I'm not that "hardcore" and to be honest, messing with all of Haswells overclocking options make my head spin.

IMO, K.I.S.S. aka, Keep It Simple Stupid smile.gif

My OC is way worse than what you guys got.

The best I could do is 3.8 Ghz at 1.2VCore and 1.15V Processor Cache.
It's not even stable at 3.8 Ghz and 1.15 VCore.

When I got this CPU, I was hoping for 4.4 at 1.2VCore.

I'm using the GIGABYTE GA-B85-HD3.

Did u updated ur bios? cuz I heard that B85 from asus at least were having a huge OC upgrade on their BIOS, look for some info of ur motherboard model. wink.gif
