I saw both of your posts, when you're able to, post up your settings. thumb.gif

I just found this thread from March with a possible solution.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1473372/solution-for-random-crash-restarts-after-coldboot-with-an-overclocked-cpu-on-certain-motherboards

I'm going to put my settings back to the tested values and see if this fixes the issue. I'll let ya know. thanks!

Hi I was wondering if someone could answer a question for me regarding this processor. Building a z87 mini-itx rig for a friend who mainly wants to do homework, facebook, and minecraft. Was wondering if the processor alone should be fine for minecraft or if I should consider putting something like a 750ti with it considering minecraft is supposedly CPU intensive.

Good evening all,

Have this processor, and am very impressed by its performance. Right now I'm at 4.5Ghz @1.27v, being cooled by a Hyper 212 Evo. My question is, what is the best method for overclocking this processor? All I have done is change the multiplier and up the vCore. Should I be changing the BCLK at all, or a mix of both? Thanks in advance!

I'm using just the apu which is fine for me, but I just play age of kings from 1999 and aoe hd. Afaik, the hd graphics are gt1 and worse than my geforce 8600 card, but the apu is fine for aok. If I was your friend I would get a cheap power efficient gpu like an hd 6450 for its insanely low power consumption:

It's $45 or less shipped on ebay all day long.

z87 mini-itx boards arn't cheap.. you get better price / performance if you get a better CPU.. because you're locked into mini itx board.

Based on various gaming benchmarks I have seen, I don't think a Pentium G3258 + GTX 750 Ti would have a problem with Minecraft

What kind of "homework" is that ?

Minecraft has been referenced to be heavy. It also runs servers on choice. It may be that.

I did a quick search on Google about benchmarking Minecraft

http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/74637-minecraft-cpu-benchmarking-weirdest-bench-test-ever/

I didn't expect that blocky looking game to be that demanding

It's very logical why. The graphics suck (by design). The CPU is allowed to reign supreme.

It's almost an "illusion" of needs. e.g. Crysis 3 would do the same on bad graphics.
