    The amount of chipsets intel has and the complete lack of difference between each of them is rather dumb...

    The only difference between Z/H87 and B85 is 2 USB ports or something daftly insignificant like that... And woot H81 takes off two DIMMs... That's pretty dumb. Especially considering they are almost certainly all based on the same die...

    IMO intel needs no more than 2 chipsets for LGA1150, and even that would probably be overkill.

    I think B85 also only has 4 SATA 6Gb/s ports versus 6 on the Zx7 chipsets.

    Hi guys~
    I'd buy MSI B85M-E45 M/B and update O.C bios for O.C test

    Finally I succed O.C to 4.8GHz with stock cooler..orz....

    Is the max multi governed by the CPU itself or the motherboard?

    I would be interested to see how it performs at those speeds in relation to GPU performance in something like the Ungine valley benchmark if you would have the time at some point in the future.

    Intel lately has been the master of making redundant SKUs. The entire CPU lineup below the 4690K simply has too many chips that are priced too close to each other to make sense. Take the i5 4440 vs 4590 for example. Why would anyone NOT pay ~$10 more for extra 400MHz?

    And when it comes to their chipsets even the ~$50 H81 boards are already overkill for most gamers let alone most consumers. Smart enthusiasts (like me heh) ain't fooled. Now with unofficial OCing support on the non-Z chipsets it basically only boils down to whether you want to pay more for USB3 front headers or 4 DIMM slots. Why they want to make so many chipsets for Haswell alone I simply don't get it.

    Just bumping this thread. Any new or old options for over-clocking the G3258? I need to get a motherboard preferably ITX

    And I might get one for a play if someone can recommend me a half decent Matx board with some decent overclocking in it.

    Asus H97I-PLUS is the only ITX MoBo I have an OC BIOS for

    Asus H97M-PLUS for you sir, it has some decent VRMs and cooling options. There's also the G43, but the BIOS is tricky, but perfectly doable.

    I'm afraid Gigabyte were one of the vendors that didn't upload any OC BIOS's on their FTP server, which is where I usually steal all of mine from. There is the EasyTune app that Gigabyte bundles with the H97 though for some reason. That allows baseclk and voltage modifying.

    You can check their F4 Bios for the D3H, it says "improve Intel K performance", but I see no evidence of successful OC on it.

    Quick edit, I've added the AFUDE238.exe in a RAR file inside my shared dropbox folder. I haven't tested it myself, but it's downloaded straight from the MSI FTP. Would appreciate if anyone could test it.

    I give you a round of applause (I missed when you said that earlier) well done!:clap:

    Very cool, im surprised you made it that far on that board. I mean 4.8 is a very high overclock on a B81 motherboard and Pentium Chip. Bet that thing cruises along very well in games.

    I thought they were not going to get in the way of the board partners doing this anymore.

    not really intel can roll a me-engine update via windows update and disable the patch remotely

    Not if those that have it don't update windows for the duration they own the board, me for example! and if Microsoft throw something in the mix that aint directly related and/or mentioned in their update links from a 3rd party source I'll sue them :)

    Sorry to be a complete noob, but how do I install the BIOS? (I have a MSI B85M-E45 & G3258) I have downloaded the file entitled "E7818IMS.A61" but I have no idea how to install it so I can overclock the CPU... :/
    Thanks,
