This is my log for the overclocking session I held this afternoon (June 16th 2016). In this session I was benching for the Pro OC Championship 2016 Round 2 – Stage 5 on 3DMark06.
The hardware I used was :
Motherboard: ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus VIII Extreme
Graphics Card: ASUS ROG 980 Ti Poseidon
Memory: HyperX Fury Dark 2666 C15
Processor: Intel Core i7 6700K
Power Supply: Cooler Master V1200
TIM: T-Grizzly Kryonaut
CPU Pot: Der8auer BEAST
Fans: Cooler Master Jetflow fans
The plan for tonight was 3DMark06 overclocking and my estimations were that I would be able to run around 6.35, 6.4-ish GHz on the processor at 4 cores 8 threads. The VGA card was clock to a very mild 1468 to the max score I can do on air with 2100 on the memory.
Now I thought I would be able to crack the top 20 and unfortunately I came up a little bit short. And I managed to only post a score but just over 60k. It is a personal best for me, which is always great to see, but unfortunately that won’t get me to the top 20 and it won’t be very competitive for the ProOC …
All in all, it was a great session once again using the HyperX 2666 C15 memory. It’s very easy to overclock and you can see from the video (replay here) I didn’t used any profiles for today other than what ROG supplies. And this is as 1,2,3 to improve your score – like it did.
Taking a Short break
I will be taking a little break next week – a vacation so to speak – to enjoy life and relax. I will be back after that for what comes next. There has been some teasing about the Team Cup as well as some other things to happen to the summer, so I’m really looking forward to it.
