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

You don't even need Z97 to OC the pentium. Most cheap H81's would be able to do it for him.

I had one E8400 C0 paired with one Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI (nFORCE 650i) back in the day... From 2008 to 2012 this was my R.I.G...

About the overclock even the early C0 revision runs @ 4.0 Ghz with no problems. It will use more power than the E0, but runs fine.

It was a real bottleneck to my GPU´s about 2011 towards, when i pickup a FX-8350@4.66Ghz/FSB@233.

The FX destroys the C2D in everything i use.

I second these posts about the G3258 and board combo. You can get that thing up beyond 4.2Ghz and have a processor which will still do single threaded stuff faster than Skylake i3s (non-overclocked.) It's also very cheap. Really, that would be the option I'd go for in that price range.

I wouldn't bother with the old Haswell Pentium G3258 when you can overclock a Skylake Pentium.

Can't really complain about the g3258. I built one for pretty much the same reasons. One of my first custom built pc's had a pentium 4 in it and I still had the case. Modded the case and modernized it then figured why not bring it back to life with another pentium in it. Asrock h97 board + 8gb ddr3 1333 and a g3258 was dirt cheap. 4.4ghz was easy on stock cooling... They can go higher with ease.

CPUs are not, but some BIOS revisions of some motherboards can BCLK overclock like the old days. Only thing here though is that you need to put some more work into it, namely selecting the right board, flashing the correct BCLK BIOS (Intel frowned on this and wanted it gone,) and getting the right memory.

From what I heard, you need memory that has a high clock that that you can lower the multiplier for that is not 2133 as DDR4 apparently cannot be dropped below that speed. I'm not that knowledgeable on it, but there are threads that discuss all the ins and out of Skylake BCLK overclocking. Only issue for the OP though as this does involve more work and is a little more complex as a whole.

The Haswell Pentium idea is less complex as it is indeed unlocked multiplier wise, but has slightly less clock per clock performance.

Is having an unlocked cpu not a major advantage? The guy's not looking to spend a ton of money. A cheap g3258 that is pretty much guaranteed to hit 4.4ghz is hard to pass up as a recommendation for his needs and offers more than enough performance.

I didn't forget the many ways of overclocking as I've been oc'ing almost 15 years now. However, i'm not going to make it harder for myself for the sake of it, either.

Don't worry, I prefer multipliers as well, it's just slicker with less overall consideration.

I mean, I get the fun nuances of balancing out and considering everything (chipset voltage, PCI bus clock speed, and so forth,) but for a main computer, it's really just easier to use a multiplier without having to consider what affects some FSB clock has on some random IC on a sound card...

Still annoyed from over 10 years ago when I was trying to get a Cedar Mill P4 past 4.35Ghz, stupid board hit a FSB wall... I know that CPU could have gotten to 5Ghz.

3.9ghz Skylake is equal to 6.2ghz Penryn in Superpi 32M

You should be fine on a non OCing board and a G3258
