Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 72

post #711 of 4581
To be clear, my chip can do 4.8 but temps will be creeping up on the 80c line and I'm not comfortable with it running that hot constantly (probably will run in the 70s during heavy gaming vs 60s at 4.6).

Just so everyone is clear the chip is only rated to 72c not the norm 105c. So if you even run at that temp for long it could and might kill the chip.

Good to know! Ive already ventured into the high 70s with this chip and figured I was still in the clear...


Butttt now that I think of it that seems awefully low

The Intel TCase temperature specification has nothing to do with the peak core temperature that most software is showing you. As long as your CPU is not thermal throttling, then it is running within spec. With these CPUs, that doesn't start to happen until a peak core temperature of 100C. If RealTemp reports OK in the Thermal Status area, then your CPU has not reached the thermal throttling temperature so it is OK. 72C TCase has nothing to do with the peak core temperature.

i just ordered this cpu with an MSI B85m for a frien. cant wait to test this thing out

Thanks for clarifying!

What was your ram running at before? if you were running at 2, 133 MHz I would drop it to 1333 MHz to see if that improves stability.

Before, DRAM speed was set to 1,333 MHz which is the BIOS default

I will try at a later time if I can get 4.3 GHz stable using a Vcore between 1.325 V and 1.350 V. Maybe ~1.335 V



I have previously overclocked a Core i5 750 and a Core i3 530 years ago and, during that time, you only have to tweak Vcore

Now, there are two more voltages that you need to tweak, VccIN and Ring voltage


Also, I'm wondering why core temperature is relatively high given that it's only a dual-core CPU

If you check my post at page 70 of this thread, you can see that even a GTX 750 Ti is still affected by CPU performance

any intentions of trying 4.5ghz

Lol true. It is quite a cheap CPU, but it seems, the OC capabilities is nothing to joke about! Thanks man.
