I can confirm that MSI H81m-p33 with bios v1.9 is overclockable. But beware of windows updates which disable overclocking.

v1.9 bios is still available to download directly from MSI
https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/H81M-P33.html#down-bios

My G3258 max OC on H81m-p33 is 4.4GHz @ 1.38-1.39 Vcore
The main thing I don't like about H81m boards is only two ram slots which are very close together and only one phase vrm for the ram.

I got my G3258 a few months ago, and its good for many older games,but there are some games which run horrible on a G3258.
Also, if any major windows process starts running in the background while you are gaming, your game becomes choppy and fps goes down.

Planetside 2 runs terrible on a G3258 since a year ago, when the game was made more multi-threaded.
I had to do a "hack" (by killing some threads) to make Planetside 2 run smooth, but the "hack" causes the animations to stop working. Here's planetside 2 on a G3258 without animations.

Skyrim runs smooth-as-butter on an overclocked G3258.
The G3258 is a "hit-and-miss" cpu. Some games run flawless. Other games run poorly. And some games are unplayable, except maybe with hacks.

G3258 OC'd to 4.6GHz on a H81 over here as well.
Specifically the Asus H81I-Plus (BIOS Ver. 2105)

Does anyone know how to OC a G3258 on a ASUS Q87M-E? I contacted ASUS support and they say it can OC the G3258 but I can't up the CPU ratio above 32x, even reflashing/rolling back the BIOS.

Tr y setting the CPU to "Per Core" and punch both cores in manually.

It seems locked to 32x, I have it on per core and XMP profile enabled, etc. on HWInfo64 as well, it says Ratio Overclocking is not supported. Does this mean my CPU is locked or my mobo is the issue?

Hard to find anything about it, does anyone know if the g3258 can be oced on an ASUS H81M-A board?

The CPU is unlocked, so it's your mobo doing it. I'd search for your mobo model and "overclock bios" or search this thread for other users on the same mobo.

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2535601/overclocking-g3258-asus-h81m.html and https://www.overclock.net/t/1515631/help-with-overclocking-a-g3258-with-an-asus-h81m-c
though, the latter is with the "C" variant, it's still h81, so you should be good to go if you get the right bios.

Necro time! Found a G3258 used on Craigslist for cheap. I had an Asus Z97-E that I wasn't using and popped it in there. It turned out to be a good sample - 4.7 Ghz @ 1.3v on air (Thermalright True Spirit 140). I had a bunch of hardware sitting around used and built a nice little rig to play WoW Legion with. Its running the game at almost max settings - just view distance and environmental detail turned down a couple notches. I also have Skyrim Special Edition on the PC and its smooth as butter as well on Ultra. May be an oldie, but it was still a fun little OC adventure. I have a backlog of games from 2010 to 2014 I'm going to load on it as well as LotRO. It may be only two cores and two threads, but it still has it uses.

G3258 @ 4.7 Ghz 1.3v
Asus Z97-E
16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1600 RAM
Galax GTX 1060 6GB EXOC White Edition
OCZ Vertex 460A 480GB
EVGA 450W bronze

Guys, I've bumped this G3258 up to 4.8 Ghz with 1.35v. Its on air, but stays at 70C during stress testing and in the low 50s while gaming. Its used maybe four hours a day. Am I good long term with that voltage and temps?
