Cool I'll try editing those settings. When should I up the uncore ratio. When I get passed 4ghz maybe. And I don't think I have LLC XD
Board wasn't intended to oc so its obv. That its Going to be missing a few things.

neat. What clock do you have in it
I get stuttering with one 280x on stock

Stuttering on what?

Oh I know that, that's exactly why I'm really impressed you previously had to get a K edition I5 if you wanted to run emulated games really well, especially the most demanding titles and for the price point of this chip it's pretty much ideal.

I guess the cpu. It happened when I was playing skyrim to test it and in valley. Fps would drop a little but not a lot
This was at stock CPU settings. I'll try it again when I hit the 4ghz mark with task manager and afterburner to see which one it is

Most games ran fine on stock Intel. The problem was having to use DSP LLE for some games which need more cpu power. Many of the Wii/Gamecube games are 30 fps which isn't hard to achieve and the 60 fps games are usually more simplistic.You really only needed the k i5 for Mario Galaxy and stuff like Zone of Enders.

My old i3 540 at 4.4 used to run Dolphin games fine, before current optimizations in Dolphin and PCSX2.

I'm mainly taking about the most demanding games being harder to run and requiring faster processors, and a higher clock speed helping to push through more demanding titles which either a higher stock clock on an Intel processor, or overclocking a K edition processor can achieve, with the G3258 overclocked to 3.8GHz upwards it should handle the most demanding emulated titles really well, and you no longer need a K i5 or an i7 solely for full speed or close to full speed emulation in the most demanding games, unless you need the threads for software emulation in PCSX2 which I've heard can benefit the performance in software mode.

Most PCSX2 and Dolphin games run quite well even without the most powerful processors, my Phenom II ran games like Tekken 4, Wind Waker, Skyward Sword and Final Fantasy 10 pretty well but would fall short in more demanding titles, requiring one or a few speed hacks to speed it up like SOTC and ZOE, I'm basically praising the single-threaded performance.

im back here posting to say i fixed the throttrle issue. it was cpu bound. there was a program using 50% of cpu. on another note still cant get cpu to downclock on idle. i have EIST enabled and all the other mumbo jumbo the only thing i have that ist on is adaptive voltage and that is because when it isnt on auto i cant OC at all and i dont know why

Have you tried changing your power settings in windows?

Try changing them to balanced or click on the "Change plan settings" field in power options on the checked power option in "Preferred Plans", click on "Change advanced power settings", scroll down to "Processor power management" and drop the "Minimum processor state" to 5%

for some reason changing the min CPU didn't work but using the actual power saver setting did. I guess I try to get voltage to drop as well if freaking adaptive would stop killing my OC. And is 1.29v good for 4.2 or is it a little high?

It depends on the CPU but it does seem a tad high, it depends on how well the CPU overclocks really.
I can do 4.4GHz at 1.25v
