Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 53W BX80646G3258 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Have mine running stable at 4.3 GHz 1.263 v

Cons: There are a lot of good & great chips with this puppy..

Basically you are guranteed 4.1 GHz with voltage to 1.2

But just some of these chips push past that point..its just a throw of a dice really...still a 90% overclock isn't half bad.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I'm too OCD but I expected mine to run at 4.5 GHz minimum. Tried many things except water cooling.

Tried stock cooler with stock thermal paste no luck past 4.1

Tried stock cooler with noctua nt-h1 thermal paste still stuck at 4.1

Pulled the gun & got a Noctua NH-L9i with NT-H1 thermal paste got it running at 4.3 with some what high temps but its stable.

Load temp specified by Intel is 72 C for this chip. Keep that as a benchmark.

Maybe with a better cooling solution you could pull out 4.5 GHz but then again there are folks running this at 4.5 GHz with the stock heatsink!

So I decided to not invest in it anymore. Happy with 4.3.

Get a better power supply 80 Plus Gold minimum. Can't stress that enough! It plays a major part when overclocking.

Get a 9-series board too so you have safe upgrade path to Broadwell.

Thats it really pretty satisfied with my purchase

MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent price, decent layout.

Cons: Doesn't WORK!!

Other Thoughts: Agree with Tiffany B. have same issue as them..this BOARD is garbage!!

Won't let me update BIOS. Won't detect graphics card. Won't boot from hard disk except 1 to 5 times.

BIOS pre-loaded is version 17.13 & Manufacture date is June 2013

MSI is garbage for low end. Don't buy! Stick to Asus!

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 DirectX 11 ZT-61001-10M 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Follow up..previous card had 'coil whine' issue 03/12/2013

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 DirectX 11 ZT-61001-10M 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: It works now..

OC's to 1200 MHz core / 6000 MHz memory + 130/ 500 core/mem..amazing!

Giving performance similar to HD7770/better when OC'd

After tinkering..runs games like Devil May Cry - Ultra detail..HD AA..2xAF @ 1080p easily

Tomb Raider - High AA..1080p - 32 fps average

Hitman Absolution - 2xAF - High - 1080p - 31 fps average

Crysis 3 - High 2xAF - 25-30 fps average

Great performance for the price

Nvidia drivers are rocking & aren't written by a 'Moose'

Cons: Previous card had the 'coil whine' issue where the graphics card would make a zing noise when running graphic intensive workload. Un-noticeable at first but will drive you NUTS in a week lol.

Anyway got replacement new card makes very very faint whine which is other cards do that amount as well.

But temperatures went up by 10C but the Unigine score went up by 10 points too?

IDK what gives..seems like previous card wasn't running to its full capacity somehow

GeForce Experience Beta is useless will make all your games run at 720p low..idk why that program needs tons of work..btw if you're a PC fanatic you should love tinkering with stuff so idk why you would want that but I guess its not that much of a bad idea but needs lotta work.

Other Thoughts: Really great performance.

1GB buffer isn't the limiting factor as I imagined.

I'd recommend this over GTX 650 Ti as the performance improvement isn't drastic..Its either GTX 650 or 660 Ti..take your pick.
