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?
