OC for a G3258

So I was messing around with the OC on my pentium g3258. For some reason even with voltage and the multiplier increased it won't budge from 3.2 ghz. I am using a z97 board, and just last week I had it overclocked to 3.7 ghz. but now when I try it doesn't do anything

 

 

The multiplier limits show that it "Can" go up to (I have it at "4" ghz) that OC but it won't clock higher than 3.2 when I stress test. I used CPU-Z to test that my changes were being applied.

 

Any ideas?

I ran prime 95 as well as CPU-Z's own stress tester

Is the x40 set to all cores synced in the bios or just one?

 

should be both, this MOBO doesn't give you the choice in the bios you just get one option for changing multipliers

 

 

Enable turbo boost from Bios.


I will try that

 

 

clear cmos then

 

where do you do that?

take out battery for 1 minute and then put it back in

bios settings will be reset but all you need to do is dial in oc settings again..

report back please

Interesting. I second clearing CMOS and trying to overclock it again.

so a few interesting findings.....

 

 

I reset the CMOS and turned on turbo mode and was able to get 3.7 ghz out of it, I had the voltage at 1.3 volts and couldn't get a stable overclock at 4ghz

 

is it possible that I just got a garbage OC chip?

ive seen them hit 3.8 on the stock cooler. higher on liquid.

could just be terribly binned

my brother was able to OC his on air to like 4.6 ghz sooooo i think I just got screwed over with the binning

1.3 i to high drop voltage to 1.225 some boards don't use the . or has a drop down menu so just type 1225

You can easily push the G3258 to 1.35v, some people even go up to 1.4v.

 

The most I ever got stable on mine (on an ASRock Z97 Pro4 MoBo) was 4.5 GHz at 1.37v.  I backed it down to 4.4 GHz at 1.35v for routine operation.

 

I've since put a 4690k in the ASRock board and have the G3258 in an MSI H81 board (which now will no longer support overclocking thanks to the black hearted bastards at intel.)

btw list your mb manufactor

ECS I basically went for the cheapest mobo I could get at that point, it will change in the future but yeah atm that is who makes it

 

1.3 i to high drop voltage to 1.225 some boards don't use the . or has a drop down menu so just type 1225 

 

1.3 is fine for the pentium and I dropped it to 1.2ish after I got the 3.7 clock

but we don't know the cooler mb manufatuare or psu either when I was on a stock cooler + biostar hifi z87x 3d mb and evga 500w (non b ) I got the same results trying 1.3. lowering v core to 1.225 got me to 4.2ghz stable 

 

forgot to mention it was running @ 94c on stock cooler adding a arctic freezer i11 droped it to 60c and never can get past 4.2ghz

All true, mine was on an Evo 212, with a Seasonincs PSU, and even at 1.37v temps never got above the low 70s, but it was also in a V51 with tons of airflow.
