Dancop is a German overclocker who is currently number one in the worldwide overclocker ranking on HWBOT.  Once again Dancop managed to clinch more Global First Places, this time three with the ROG Rampage V Extreme and Strix GTX 980 Ti in the categories Catzilla 720P 1xGPU, Catzilla 1440P 1xGPU and HWBOT Prime 8xCores.  He also achieved the highest score for the new benchmark launched by HWBOT called HWBOT x265 1080P.



Systems Specs

Motherboard: Rampage V Extreme

Graphics card: Strix GTX 980 Ti

CPU: Intel Core i7 5960X

Memory: HyperX Predator DDR4

PSU: Seasonic Platinium 1200W


Dancop bought 15 pieces of  the Intel i7 5960X CPUs since the launch of the X99 platform in August 2014, before finding the one that can go up to 6.2GHz in the HWBot Prime benchmark - no Haswell-E CPU has ever made it this far in this benchmark. 

The scores in Catzilla 720P and 1440P were easily obtained thanks to the Rampage V Extreme and the Strix GTX 980 Ti.  For the benchmark Catzilla 720P, he only used 6 liters of LN2, and 15 liters for the global first place in Catzilla 1440P.  However, for the benchmark HWBOT Prime 8xCores, it was not as easy.  It took two hours of benching, a hundred reboots and 20 liters of LN2.  Often he got the score he wanted but the pc would freeze just before he was able to get the screenshot.  In the end, the preparation, cooling of the system, heating up, booting, rebooting took hours of benching and 90L of LN2.  The effort and determination was not in vain! 


Catzilla 720P - 58,093 Marks @ 2,010MHz (+86.80%) / 2,100MHz (+19.79%) & 5,713MHz (+90.43%)

Catzilla 1440P -  18,975 Marks @ 2,031MHz (+88.75%) / 2,100MHz (+19.79%) &  5,908MHz (+96.93%)

HWBOT Prime - 9,793.43 pps @  6,203MHz (+106.77%)

HWBOT x265 1080P - 48.33FPS @ 5,570MHz (+85.67%)

HWBOT x265 1080P is a new benchmark created by Havli from Czech Republic, so few results have been recorded.  However, along came Dancop who pushed his CPU and set the bar real high with 48.33FPS.

"At the moment we have no dedicated video encoding benchmark on HWBOT.  So I thought it would be nice to create one.  There are plenty of video encoders available on the internet and benchmark applications for most of them already exists.  I don't like reinventing the wheel... :)  Therefore I picked the most modern encoder - H265/HEVC.
Only one benchmark exists (that I know of) and it isn't really suitable for our needs.  http://x265.ru/en/x265-hd-benchmark/ My benchmark is working the same way, but GUI is used instead of a command line interface.  I also added some tweaks and options to get the best possible score on most computers, even very extreme ones. :)

HWBOT x265 Benchmark is based on the open source x265 encoder.  It can take advantage of modern CPU instructions sets and multi-thread support is also very good.  However this benchmark is also capable of running even on as old processors as Athlon XP (maybe Pentium III as well).  Of course on legacy hardware the encoding time is rather long.  There are two presets available - 1080p and 4k.  The main goal of both of them is to convert H.264 source video to H.265/HEVC and measure average frames per second." - Havli from Czech Republic
