    Dear vaman,

    Dear vaman,

    According to Intel spec, the Microcode must be updated for supporting Windows 10 with G3258.
    Due to the policy of Intel is only Z-series chipset support overclocking, Intel locked G3258 overclocking with non-Z series chipset in Microcode.
    If you want to use G3258 with Windows 10, the CPU is not able to overclock with non-Z series chipset.

    I got a non Z board, MSI H81m E33 I got windows 10 pro and G3258 and I am overclocked @4.2GHz with zero problems, Varman you have a Z board so should be ok
