You say they say so why not?

While I could not find any mention of this in the manual, are you doubting their word?

If so, and if the seller and maker are not answering, DO NOT BUY!

Also, this looks to be one of those tiny boards. I know folk that get these, cram them into small boxes to burn their money faster than a hypersonic test vehicle.

There are people who want their stuff small. I've been a Raven 03 and a full atx user for a long time and cleaning it is a pain in the ***.

That's why I tried Intel's NUC.

why i didn't like about it is that for its performance
it is way too expensive that building it yourself.

My understanding of the G3258...

is unlock so it is capable of overclocking but the issue here maybe the board. As Robert suggested, I do not see it in the specification either.
