Just save it and get 860 tii

Haha, I think I'll go for the 870 or something, hopefully it comes out in September or is at least announced!

It's been so stressful lately, so many games I've wanted to try, I saw Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare on Origin free time, and the same for TitanFall, they would of been excellent games to test! doh.gifsad-smiley-002.gif

hell my first gen running on 2 with HT on at 4.4-4.5ghz runs pretty damn good like that xD

For real, if the G3258 had 4 threads or simply 1 more core. It would be insane! The things which struggle on it would simply benefit from one more core or 2 more threads, It's not even funny!

I picked up 2 G3258 combos with B85 chipset motherboards, a Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H and MSI B85M-P33 v2. Both boards cap the core voltage at 1.2v (which it goes to on AUTO when I overclock). And both cap my 1600Mhz memory at 1400Mhz, even with XMP profile enabled - probably a limitation of the B85 chipset.


Have you tried raising the bus speed and dropping the multiplier? you might be able to bring your memory up to their stock 1600MHz that way if you deem it safe.

At this point, I worried the RAM might be a bit funky so I ran MemTest86 all night and it came back clean so that's at least one less component I have to worry about. Given where it's at, I may play the return game. I backed it down to 4.2Ghz this morning with all the same settings from when I was at 4.3Ghz just to see if I get some stability.

Biggest problem now is the AC is on the fritz in my house and it's going to be 90*F today. Not an ideal day for testing.
Thanks, I may give it a try. Did you have to say anything specific or "just wasn't what I was looking for."

Wow not even 1.2v for ring? thinking.gif
Good luck by the way!

Your BSOD shouldnt be caused by vring, mine is at 1.2v its perfectly safe. try to find your bsod bugcheck code and you can better diagnose whats causing it, most likely you need more vcore.

It's a great chip, I'm glad I could show others how it performs.
Before I made the thread I was wondering if I should get an i3 or the G3258, I picked the G3258 to help the community and show others how it performs!
