    Can I overclock a Pentium G3258 with this? They say that
    you can OC that certain CPU with a B85 or even an H81. Thanks!

    With the right bios you can overclock on some of the B85 Chipsets. I believe the biostar was annouced to be able to do this awhile back so just make sure you have the bios version that supports overclocking the Pentium.

    Many motherboard makers already release bios updates for overclocking unlocked intel cpus on non-z97 motherboards (h81, b85, h97, etc)

    add a cheap but very good air cpu cooler like cooler master hyper 212 evo (or 212x)
    (replace the basic air cpu cooler that came in with intel processor)

    Thanks guys. Would that be as easy as changing the multiplier just like on Z board?
