I didnt try because i want to manually test it so i can learn to OC

Oh gotcha 3.8Ghz is a preset. Yea, they are always ultra-conservative on the voltage on those presets. They give the chip way more than it needs. Definitely go manual.

I hope that i will do better than auto settings!!!

Hiya, new here at overclock.net, really loving this fine G3258 cpu, bought my 2nd one today.
I have 4.5GHZ rock solid, ring ratio at default, currently at 1.24v (started at 1.267v and am working my way down). 4.6 seems a bit troublesome as i didnt get it to stay stabile in windows even at 1.28v, and 4.7 wont even boot, hangs at the spinning windows colourballs.
Get about 4100/7800 in geekbench 3 64bit and 2049/3930 in CPU-Z. OC memory 1600MHZ to 2400MHz (12-12-12-30) aswell.

I think I might have a good specimen, but not sure what defines a good overklock, 4.7-4.9? Stock intel cooler aswell as my microITX case want take much bigger HSFs.

I have the MSI Z97-ACmotherboard, 16Gb (2*8GB) RAM Corsair XMS3 1600.
Gladly take pointer on what to set the different settings to, been away from OCing for a good number of years.

My new G3258 is a SR1V0 / 3418C000, know if they're any good? Pairing it with either a CORSAIR H80 watercooler or a ANTEC Kühler H20 920 water cooler I have lying around, or might go stock again :-)
Motherboard is a GIGABYTE Z97P-D3 rev 1.0 ATX
Graphics is ZOTAC GTX 670 AMP! Edition (680+ speed), or a regular EVGA GTX 680 with aftermarket cooler ARCTIC Accelero twin turbo II. Think the G3258 can handle more GPU?

4.5 GHz is nice OC. Trying to stress it too much would only kill the CPU. 4.2GHz is still passable OC, and usable in games that doesn't need 4 cores. (Actually it's awesome in these games, and can beat up larger non OC CPUs.)

Tried my other G3258 now, struggles to get past 4.2ghz, guess they're quite different then. Not same motherboard or anything though. Z97-D3 gigabyte f5bios (second latest)

Hey all Overclockers, i got this CPU 2 years ago with a Gigabyte B85M-DS3H 2.0, I know its not the best mobo for OC, but i had really low budget, built a pc for less than $300 (without the RAM), including Zalman case, WD black „TB, some ****ty 550w PSU and the mobo, i already had some Corsair Vengeance Rams which i still use. Now my problem is that i see everywhere that the CPU can be OC-d with stock cooler and this mobo easily to 4.0 (even with 1.2v Vcore limit), but i am unable to achieve it. I never did stress tests, only measure temperature, but never got beyond 3.6-3.7 Ghz. What i am doing wrong? The only things i changed from default Bios settings are the multiplier and the vcore. Any advice?
