GIGABYTE GA-B85M-Gaming 3 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works good so far, the BIOS does allow me to overvolt my G3258 past 1.2v so I'm not sure what the other reviewer was saying about it being limited, it isn't. I'm currently running a G3258 @ 4.0Ghz 1.225v 24/7 for the last month, no issues. 1TB WD SATA III, HD5770 1GB, a PCIe x1 wifi card, and 8GB of Corsair Vengeance ram.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Remember to check the CPU memory speed supported. Just because the board will take 1600Mhz ram doesn't mean the CPU will let it run that fast. I mistakenly bought 1600mhz ram but the G3258 is limited to 1333Mhz, however with XMP enabled it runs at 1400Mhz, so it's a little bit of a boost. so if you get memory that isn't XMP you can get 1333mhz ram

Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1150 53W BX80646G3258 Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fantastic little chip, I have mine overclocked via Turbo settings in BIOS to x40 multi (4.0Ghz) at 1.225v prime95 stable and the highest temp on the stock cooler I have seen is 70c.

Idle is around 40c with stock cooler (in Florida) and average load is 60c.

I play a lot of demanding games with it like planetside2 and TERA with no issues at max settings using a HD5770

Cons: It doesn't make me breakfast

Other Thoughts: for under $70 and this thing is on par (if not better) with my previous Phenom II X4 940BE and it doesn't heat up my house like a giant space heater.

Also, you can use the Turbo settings in the BIOS to select the Turbo frequency multiplier instead of using the base multiplier to overclock it.

DIYPC Zondda-S Black USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with 3 x White Fans (1 x 140mm LED Fan x side, 1x120mm LED Fan x front, 1 x 120mm fan x rear)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 3 fans, USB 3.0 slot, extremely quiet (I can't even hear it 2 feet away), great looking, nice black interior, cleanable air filter on the bottom where the PSU mounts

Cons: The DVD drive slot is curved to one side so you have to sit the drive a little shallow in the bay otherwise the corner of it will poke out, but it really isn't noticeable as long as you mount it just right.

Other Thoughts: I really like it, it's super lightweight also, my mom was even able to lift it when I moved.
