The Pentium G3258 has a fully unlocked multiplier (just like Core i5 and i7 K CPUs) so can be easily overclocked. Stock speed is 3.2GHz but you can easily overclock this CPU with a Z series motherboard (Z87/Z97).

Speeds may vary, OC dependant upon CPU/Board/RAM/Cooler. Please purchase an aftermarket cooler if you wish to overclock this chip. We recommend Corsair Hydro coolers and Phanteks air coolers for best performance.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best VFM CPU going Can't recommend this chip enough, have done a few builds with this CPU now and I'm so tempted to get rid of my 3570k and get this instead. The performance to value ratio is amazing, and when it's clocked up to around 3.8+ it flies. For most day to day tasks it's perfect, had an A8-6600k before this and it's, in my opinion, so much better, runs cooler+quieter on standard HS+F. 17 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overclockable dual core for cheap!! I must say that this little CPU is brilliant, even though mine is a bit of a poor overclocker (4.4Ghz is pretty much the limit keeping it under 1.4Vcore, my friends manages 4.5Ghz @ 1.25vcore with the stock cooler) but for the money it's superb. I have the CPU in a Z97 Asrock OC Forumla for benchmarking and when my new board turns up (Asrock Z97 Extreme 6 ordered from Scan today) it'll be used with that for a replacement for my home server (an older FM1 AMD APU setup) Obviously I won't be overclocking it for my home server but for what it costs I wouldn't entertain an i3 and definitely not a cheaper i5 as for the extra money I'd definitely recommend a 4670k/4690k or 4770k (if budget allowed) instead. I've not really gamed with the CPU but my eldest step son has one and is having a great time with it. Obviously it'll limit a high end GPU's like 290/290X's/780/970's etc but it's a little, as it's a dual core chip, but for something like a 760/270X area of card, I'm guessing it'll fly. Very much recommended for benchmarking with or a cheap gaming rig. Would recommend again and again :) Even more so if you get a good overclocking one!! :) 13 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Overclocker Fantastic CPU, easily the single best way to go for gaming on a budget, beats out the AMD 760k for price and performance. Mine is currently sitting at 4.6Ghz on only a 212 EvO, combined with the R9 280 from XFX I do not drop below 30fps on any game I play inc Thief, Metro Last light and Crysis 3 Must Buy. 13 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast, overclocks well with the stock cooler Great CPU for the price, I overclocked it with a cheap motherboard with the stock cooler to 4.4ghz and I am sure I could push it further. Returned it to stock as it is a computer built for my old man and frankly I don't want the grief! Very fast at stock settings. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Budget friendly intel gaming solution This chip works fine as a budget solution at stock but once overclocked it turns into an absolute beast at handling framerates. As long as you are not planning on rendering photos or videos this is a really great option for gaming and general browsing that outputs the same performance for those tasks as the rest of the outrageously priced intel quad core solutions. With lower end b95 and h97 motherboards also supporting overclocking this processor really is a must buy for those on a budget who don't require all those extra cores and hyper-threading. If you do though, you could go AMD for better price/performance ratio with the fx6300 however for mITX builds you really have no better budget options since there aren't many good mITX mobos for AMD. 22 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by If a little of what you fancy does you good, get some more of it... ...which is exactly what this CPU does. At stock speed it is a bog standard Pentium 3.2 Ghz processor and it's performance is exactly what you would expect from a 'Haswell Refresh' era CPU at this speed and this price point. But wait, there's more. So much more...... I was lucky to have a system with a Haswell Pentium already installed, so it was easy enough to update the bios and support for '4th generation' cpu's. When a CPU with an unlocked multiplier is installed such as the G3258 the bios option of altering the multiplier setting appears. Tremulously at first, then with mounting excitement - 3.4, 3.6, 3.8, 4.0Ghz. This is fun! Games are good at this speed, playable even on the HD graphics core, but bung a decent video card in and you have quite a lot of frame rate power, but the in-between play stuff will show up the lack of multi-thread ability. Maybe it can go a bit faster........? After a bit of tinkering I'm happy to run it permanently at 4.2 on a stock cooler, it's100% stable running Prime95 and 15c below TjMax. All bios options set to Auto (Asus B85 Vanguard). I think this will be fine at 4.5Ghz on stock cooling, some people report 4.8 with water but that defeats the object of this CPU. Overclock it and enjoy! 09 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent chip for messing around with Where to start with this chip... it certainly not your average CPU, I'll tell you that much. First off, for single-threaded applications, this ridiculously cheap CPU matches the big boys (4690k, and even the 4790k if you OC the Pentium) point-for-point. A lot of people will say that "games are predominantly single-threaded", so this sounds like the perfect cheap gaming chip, right? Nope. Don't get me wrong, I love this chip in all its ridiculously cheap, brute force glory... But modern games are increasingly geared towards multi-threaded CPUs, so unless you exclusively play 5 year old games, you really aren't going to be blown away with the performance. Essentially, you get what you pay for in terms of raw power, and you aren't paying much. Overclocking aside, for a budget gaming PC, most reviewing sites (and I would agree with them) would recommend a Core i3 with 4 threads. Ah, however, the overclocking... this is where this chip really shines. The description doesn't lie, you really can crank this thing up by an extra 1.3GHz (40%!) right out of the box, with a little know-how. My current setup is a seemingly-stable 4.4GHz at 1.24V, but with some people reporting 4.7+GHz, its the classic case of getting lucky with a good chip. As for cooling, at 4.4GHz, the Prime95 torture test got the poor Pentium up to a pretty toasty 76 degrees on stock cooling... high, sure, but not dangerously so. Indeed, I am very impressed by the ludicrously low-profile, tiny heatsink that comes with the chip, idle temps are around 38, and gaming temps after a good few hours on, say, planetside 2 are around 68. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend buying any third party aftermarket cooler specifically for this chip, but if you have one lying around, it can't hurt to bring those temps down a little. If you were planning on spending extra cash on a Hyper Evo 212 or similar, I would take that money and buy a core i3 on stock cooling instead. You really don't need extra cooling... if the chip dies after 2 years instead of 5, well, you just got 2 years out of a £45 chip... Still, as someone who specifically bought this chip to learn about overclocking before upgrading to an i7, the Pentium was an excellent choice simply because of the overclocking potential for the price. Would recommend to a very budget-restricted overclocker, but maybe not to a pure gamer. 07 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great price - great overclocking! The reviews were right - this is a great chip for those willing to overclock. I was looking at getting an i5 for £90 more (!), so more than twice the price, but I reasoned that for my needs (mainly gaming) the four core architecture wasn't a requirement. Fantastic price for this overclockable chip. I *only* managed a solid stable 4.2GHz (speed will vary) but using a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO it keeps lovely and cool. 31 July 2014
