Sandbox thread for discussing boards that can overlock the G3258 processor without the need of the Z97 or Z87 chipsets.

A good post. I'm not sure if it's accurate:

I''m talking about H97 chipset only 'coz i love new board with new features. Actually all other chipset from Asus and most if not all from Asrock and partial MSI board (such as B85 G43 Gaming) can overclock G3258 too.

Managed to get decent overclocks out of a cheap Asus H81M-Plus board: H81 overclocking G3258

All of a sudden makes them a viable option for a budget build imo smile.gif

yes GBT supports OCing it on non Z series boards, but they aren't about to make an announcement, most of their sales come from the lower chipset series, unlike asus where a lot of their sales come from Z chipsets. It just has to do what what markets each company is dominant in, and also to what extent they want to piss off Intel, b/ Z chipset is MUCH more expensive to mobo makers than H or B or Q. I would say that the cost of all the hardware on a Z board other than the chipset might not reach the price of the chipset alone (aka chipset price of Z board is more than half the cost of all the hardware on the board) especially if the board is on the cheaper spectrum. On a H series board this isn't true as often, its much cheaper to build a board with a H series chipset than Z, even though the features of the chipset aren't all that different (same general things supported, but of course Z is usually more).

I think most people are alright with it because they can usually hit 4.2 to 4.3 GHz at 1.2v, and because newegg is having some sweet combo deals where the mobo is practically free.
