Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 52

Well it's mainly the form factor that is appealing for the friend. Alright well I think I will go with the pentium then. That should save some money on the build. Thanks

I just wanted to come back and say that I may have found the solution to the problem I was having with the system shutting itself down . I turned off "fast boot" both in Windows power options and in MSI. No random shut down, and I got the set up running at 4.2ghz @ 1.2v stable with RealBench.
This morning I played BF4 multiplayer and had a average 75fps on ultra setting. I'm calling that good. biggrin.gif

Thank you for all for all of your posts. I learned a lot reading throw this thread.thumb.gif

great news!

I also tested BF4 on this Pentium and was getting 80fps on ultra, although my monitor is 1440x900 75Hz but hey it was free. I'll upgrade to a nicer one soon, hoping for 60fps at 1080p. But all in all I am very happy with this chip. Its running every game I throw at it at ultra settings, so it seems that it isn't bottlenecking my gpu (280x) at this resolution at least.

Congrats!

One of the main things about the performance of Battlefield 4 Multiplayer was the minimum fps, if it was a tad higher for me I'd say it was really great, but it could be my ram speed that's doing it, sometimes my minimum would drop to 40 or 37 at the worst in heavy areas, other than that the frames are pretty much flying 50+

I've been meaning to get a video of this up, hopefully I'll have it or a few up this week, alongside Firefall and some frame graphs.

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

that is to say minecraft is poorly programmed. rolleyes.gif

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!

Bump.

Not sure why I purchased the intel tuning protection plan for this CPU. When ordering it for my 4790K I noticed that the price to add it to the G3258 was only $10 and I couldn't resist. headscratch.gif

Read a guide. If you are on gigabyte search for the z87x and z97x guides of sin0822. They are exceptional.

Well, i've finally completed my first ever gaming pc build using the G3258 (minus graphics card at the moment but thats on the cards soon!) - started building yesterday afternoon and finished it off this morning and had a play around this afternoon. It all came together fairly well - It took me a while as i was probably over cautious and wanted to take my time and do it right. thumb.gif

I have never overclocked before so have no idea what i'm doing - i had a mess around with the gigabyte easytune but it kept crashing or not booting at 4ghz, 4.2 and 4.6..... So i uninstalled easytune and tried to set things in the bios but it was all a bit confusing so i did some reading up on the G3258 reviews and see what settings other people had used as a reference.

I have now got it at 4.4ghz using 1.20v on the stock cooler and seems to be ok at the moment but not tried any benching or games yet - just been messing about in general and web browsing with it - it's early days, but does it ever feel fast compared to my old 2.66ghz core2duo conroe - i can hardly believe the difference! It's a bargain chip for how well it performs.

I'll post up some pics i took and a short log of the build soon.

Wow congrats man!

I hope you enjoy your build!
That's a lower voltage than I use for mine currently! thumb.gif
