    See post # 230.
    You will need a aftermarket CPU cooler before you try, but yes you can.

    What OS do you use? If you use the Win10, you are better to buy the Z series MB, because the win10 updates include microcode that will block the oc feature on non z boards, also it is same for the newer BIOS too.

    And if you can return both and you use the win10, then go for it, and you are better to buy i3 6100+H170, because you want to oc the g3258, then you need the aftermarket cooler + Z MB, that the budget will be similar to buy the i3 6100+H170. But if you use win7 and old BIOS, you are fine for the g3258+h81.
    Here more info oc g3258 vs old version i3, and we know the i3 6100 is better than the old version i3. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8232/overclockable-pentium-anniversary-edition-review-the-intel-pentium-g3258-ae
