Pentium G3258 overclocking

I haven't over-clocked anything in years.

When you guys are pushing the new Pentium to 4.8, are you simply changing the multiplier, or are you manipulating power parameters and such as well?

It really depends on the board... On the ASUS Z97-A you can leave everything on auto and just raise the multipler to x48 and that is it. I of course worked my way up from 44 to 48 in x1 multiplier increments as every chip is difference. Some of the really good chips should be able to do 4.5GHz or higher with just 1.3V. My chip needs water cooling with 1.48V to get 4.8GHz stable. It's rock solid, but I'm not going to leave it there if I ever do end up using the chip. Right now it's in the box and possibly headed to a friend.

I wouldn't go over 1.5V on the core with water cooling... 1.3V should be the safe max with aftermarket air cooling. Just be sure to monitor temperatures.
