G3258 @ 5ghz

Is anyone here seeing how far they can push the 3258?

I was having some fun with my new build last night and decided to see how far I could push this chip. And without a doubt I can say this cpu is very impressive. How impressive you might be wondering. I reached 4.5ghz without much problem. Worked my way up from there and managed to get it to 4.8ghz running stable on prime95 for the 2 hours I let it run. I decided to see how much further it would go and too my surprise it booted and navigated through windows without crashing at 4.9ghz. And with a whopping 1.5vcore I had it booting at 5ghz with navigation of windows working fine. Prime95 crashed it in a few minutes. Didn't feel gutsy enough to push it any further voltage wise. Has anyone else here done 5ghz with their 3258? I'd love to hear some stories.

If you got 4.8GHz and above you are the in the 1%. BUTTTT with that voltage of 1.5v, you will have a dead chip VERY SOON if you leave that way.

 

Either way awesome! Mines sitting dead in a box ready for RMA. :wallbash:
