Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 452

post #4511 of 4581
Hello i finally got my G3258 it looks like i lost the silicon lottery though as i cannot get it to boot past 4ghz no matter what i do or voltage i use, had to settle on 4ghz with a 1.288 Vcore.

For reference its in an Asus z97 pro gamer cooled by a NH-D15 as i am upgrading it later on this year, temps at 4ghz sits at 30c idle and max out at 60c running intel burn test, is that typical? Im gutted i cannot get it to 5ghz but its a hell of a lot better than my E8400 system it replaced, are there any tips to push it higher or is it maxed out at 4ghz?

Did you raise input voltage? Set it 1.85v. Also manually set cache to 32 at 1.150v.
If you had cache on auto some motherboards will match the core witch limits the oc.

Ram can also lower your oc. Try settings your ram to 1300mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v. You can oc cache and ram later after you stabilize a higher Oc.

Sorry, I was absent minded. I didn't read the word "lost" in the first line.

Try these settings.

LLC : Extreme or Highest Setting in your BIOS
VRIN Voltage: 1.93
Vcore: 1.325
Ring Voltage: 1.15
Multiplier: 43x or 44x (start with these, mine is at 45X)
Uncore: 32

LLC Is your load line calibration, My G3258 wasn't rock solid stable until I changed my LLC and VRIN.

Painful. Drops below 20FPS with only 50% GPU usage, straight up CPU bottleneck. Probably plays a little better when you are not recording at the same time I imagine?

Yes, G3258 is bottlenecking 750 Ti in this situation, performance is similar in this area even if I'm not recording, just a difference of 2-3 frames.

Other areas in this game are not this bad.

I've seen quite a few "G3258 and rise of the tombraider" videos and they don't throttle the gpu that much... 85-100% GPU usage with cards stronger than yours...

I'm using game ready drivers.

What area are they running around in? And how much OC do they have over G3258? What resolution? I'm playing it at 1440x900, maximum supported by my monitor.

Most on YT play at 1080p, that might explain higher usage.

Some of the videos on YT which claim to be using G3258, are simulated on i7s, with cores and hyper-threading disabled, as they have more cache, their utilization will be higher.
