best dual core AMD or INTEL cpu for a stable 5ghz overclock is there one - Page 4

post #31 of 54
maybe look into some of the xeons from the first generation 1156 platform

X3440 (top end of the family) can be had for around 40 USD so I imagine the dual core variants would be cheaper, some of the motherboards are also around 50-60 USD just make sure it can overclock before purchase

The 1156 official thread still gets activity seldomly of people pushing beyond 4.0Ghz so they may have the best direct advise from their experiences

Best of luck on your endeavors, honestly its threads like these that I miss about OCN

Checked some Ebay prices if the parts are average to a little above should do 5.0.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3 $70
Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800 2GB kit $10
Intel E8600, Cheapest $15 / E8600 are all E0s

Real good water, practical speaking 4.4-4.5, real good air 4.0-4.2

Yep, the higher the clock you start with the better. E8600.

Been waiting for someone to try clocking the snot out of one of these Skylake Celerons. It shouldn't be too hard to push 5GHz since there's less cache and such.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Celeron G3900 2.8GHz Dual-Core Processor ($48.50 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Gaming K4/D3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($109.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: Kingston HyperX FURY 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($22.98 @ Newegg)
Total: $181.46
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-08-23 23:07 EDT-0400

Why use DDR3 instead of DDR4? Because you need a 176MHz base clock for 5GHz. The lowest DDR4 memory frequency divider is 2133MT/s, so you'd need 3866MT/s RAM if you went DDR4. With DDR3, you'll have plenty of very low memory frequency dividers, so you could set it to 800MT/s and only be at 1400MT/s or so with that base clock to make it very easy.

This might give you lower temps vs solder if you don't mind the risk. He said he went from 3.2ghz@1.24v to 3.2ghz@1.056v

Can possibly work better if you use CLU or conductonaut and/or lap the IHS if you want to reseal it.

The 32nm Clarkdale i3/i5 on LGA 1156 are the best "older" dual cores in terms of OC potential. If you're looking even further back then you'd want the E8xx series on 775.

Man it sure is hard to run an old chip these days. Prices for DDR2 are still high for the good stuff, not to mention finding a good board that hasn't been fried to Mars and back.

Cheapest route and best performance for your old games is probably the Pentium G3258 with a $60 mobo and $40 RAM.thumb.gif

No reason, other than nostalgia, or some extremely niche use, to specifically want an old platform.

If you want a cheap setup you can tweak, that's what you should be looking for. Chances are you'll end up with a second hand AMD Vishera or an earlier generation Core i-x setup.

If you just want cheap performance for older games, Redwoodz suggestion is sound.

is there a decent mobo youd recommend for overclocking the pentium above 4.0ghz

On the cheap maybe this MSI Z97 $89 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130779

I would rec. going up to either Asus Z97 $129 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132512&ignorebbr=1

or Gigabyte Z97 UD3H $106 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128710&ignorebbr=1

Just about any motherboard can handle overclocking the dual core ok.


If you check Newegg you can get a bundle deal on most Z97 motherboards with the Pentium G3258, 8GB RAM and a HDD/SSD for $240ish or so.
