2nd pentium not such a great clocker, first one did 4.5 @ 1.28V

Same here. 1st did 4.5 at 1.252 and this one is 4.2 at 1.329. Big difference!

It will do 4.4ghz at 1.25v, 4.5ghz at 1.27v and 4.6ghz at 1.285v for an hour and half each on Prime95. I dont really want to break the 1.3v threshold but I might temporarily to see how high it will go. Temps were in the high 50s to low 60s for the 4.4ghz, low to mid 60s for 4.5 and 4.6 ghz.

Hi guys,

Long time lurker on this thread, love this cpu, love this thread too!!

I delided this thing today using the razor method, I wiggled for about an hour with no effect, but watching this video really helped, you see the guy just pushing the razor in biggrin.gif

After I watched the video it took about 30mins to delid! I was freaking out a bit when the pcb bends as you put the razor in but apparently it doesn't mind thumb.gif

I couldn't hit any higher than 4.6ghz stable at 1.29v before delid, now it is stable at 4.7 with 1.34v(I will try lowering when I have time) max temp ~70C. Anyway after the delid max temps dropped around 10 degrees which I think really helps in my case because the processor likes to blue screen with high voltage and around 80C. I didn't use any special thermal paste, actually i applied too much on my CM212 and it doesn't seem to dry so i reused some of the excess inside the lid and it seems fine, quick and dirty:thumb:

When I have time I want to try for 4.8ghz, seems so elusive! I tried up to 1.43v before but it always bluescreens under stress mad.gif

Bought my g3258 last night, put together a quick rig with an nzxt source, msi 797 pcmate and a powersupply and some ram i had laying around. By the time i got it all together it was pretty late so i didnt get to do too much with it, I just quickly tried some settings and it booted stable at 4.5 ghz and 1.25v. Once again it was late so i didnt get to do prime95 or ibt, but im pretty excited. Hopefully i got a good one!

around 1.25 at 4.5 looks very good.

guess mine is an exact twin of your second pentium. just did a small custom run with 1.328V.

Sorry for the slow updates everyone, I've been quite busy.
I'll be uploading some Darksiders 2 gameplay tonight and also Counterstrike GO.
League Of Legends benchmarking/testing will be done soon.

For those who haven't seen it yet I have some Watch Dogs footage with fraps running.

Hi Pentium owners, I'm a new owner of the G3258 which I got for cheap thanks to the Micro Center bundle deal. I haven't used it yet nor have settled on a motherboard on it. I know that ASUS has several chipsets that make the CPU unlockable, but how does it hold up in peformance in stock speeds? The reason I ask is that I am also entertaining the thought to use a Thin Mini ITX board for a very small, budget gaming build, along with a discrete GPU that will use a riser card to adapt to a PCI Express x4 slot. And being that this form factor focuses on low power consumption, overclocking on a Thin Mini ITX board is out of the question.

Tom's article here doesn't show much of a difference in framerate variance with stock versus overlocked speeds in the games they tested. Any other resources here or elsewhere where I could look up stock performance on the G3258 in games is appreciated. I am not going to be using this system for general computing tasks.
