Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 Reaches 6861.7 MHz on MSI Motherboard

The world's largest semiconductor manufacturer Intel officially announced the unlocked Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258
processor (nicknamed Pentium K by enthusiasts) at the Computex Taipei 2014 where it was finally made available to the eagerly waiting commercial market. The world-renowned motherboard manufacturer MSI also officially released a new version of BIOS simultaneously, allowing all MSI Z97/H97 motherboards to fully support this new CPU. However, only the Z97 products can overclock this CPU. In addition, MSI persists in searching for the limit and has already broken the world record for the Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 processor by reach 6861.7 MHz.

Moreover, MSI also made optimized BIOS adjustments for three motherboards that are widely popular among consumers, including Z97 GUARD-PRO, Z97-G43 and Z97 PC Mate. These motherboards are equipped with six-phase power control components, which are able to stably overclock the Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 processor. They can automatically overclock the CPU to 4.3GHz from its original 3.2GHz through MSI's exclusive technology OC Genie 4, increasing its performance by 34%, so even a beginner will be able to overclock a computer stably to high performance through a single action without any complicated skills and configurations.

Avexir Debuts the Blitz 1.1 Series Memory

The Avexir brand is an established manufacturer associated with producing top quality, high-end RAM memory. Avexir is one of the only manufactures in which the factories hand check each module when it comes to overclocking and working in dual and quad channel modes. The modules are packed into elegant boxes only when they pass thorough quality control tests on different systems including AMD and Intel processors. Other manufacturers unfortunately don't do such controlled hand quality checks, which means users are more likely to encounter a faulty DDR module, which can cause incompatibilities and headache for the user.

Avexir presents today on European market five new series of quality checked memories:
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 Original White LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 OCF Yellow LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 ELG Yellow LED
  • Avexir BLITZ 1.1 ELR Red LED
