Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970
I have tried vanilla GTA IV and it was a little choppy and as you mentioned very little GPU usage which caused my GPU clocks to change from what I had set. Framerate varied between 30-100 fps depending on how busy the area was. It was mostly smooth with what felt like little glitches every few seconds. Maybe GPU bios power savings is kicking in with high end cards that dont get maxed to 100%. The modded version maxes my GPU and the stutter from the vanilla game is gone although modding the game introduces other issues like missing textures due to lots of car replacements.
A short vid to show vanilla performance using my Fortress rig
If you're interested in the modded version I am running I have uploaded a complete mod pack here on OCN to get the game looking like my modded video minus the massive texture pack as it's about 7GB size. The pack is a simple 1 step install and includes the car pack, enb and a high res texture pack.
Feel free to give it a try

I think I will need some help to this little beast... @4.3Ghz I need 1.250v and for 4.4Ghz I need over 1.3v
It's my first time OC'ing a intel CPU, I read the haswell guide but, but it only help me to understand the features of a Intel board.
Hum, ok it's good. So those 4.6Ghz+ chip are only a few by batch. Can I do somethink to drop my vCore even more at 4.3Ghz like raise the VRIN ?
