poor overclocking on pentium G3258

so i decided to build a bench on the cheap for overclocking,and overclocking only.

but my Pentium G3258 will not hit more than 4,4 ghz on 1,568 V, i know it is a lot of voltage but i´am not afraid of frying anything and temps were fine i.e. in the high 70´s,
my motherboard is a msi Z97 gd-43 running the newest bios.

have i just been unlucky in the silicon lottery or am i over seeing something?

you sir, have been shat on by the lottery.

 

Good news though, that chips is super cheap so you can just buy another and try your luck in the lottery again.

well i did plan buying a new chip, the reason to buy the pentium was that it was cheap so no worry in frying the thing :)

It was a nice sale but even if i bought it i would have to pay import taxes/duties, which is 25$ + 25% of the products value.

sooo shits expensive here :(

This is why i keep telling people not to get that pentium with the expextation to run it at 5GHz or whatever. They dont all do that...
