This is my log for the overclocking session on Saturday, August 6th 2016. The ProOC Championship round three stage one submission window is currently open at OC Esports. And today was for me the occasion to just get a score for that one.
The hardware used for this session was :
- Motherboard: ASUS Republic of Gamers Rampage V Edition 10
- Memory: HyperX Fury Black 2666 C15 1.3V
- Processor: Intel Core i7 6960X
- Power Supply: Corsair AX1500i Elite edition (no OCP)
- TIM: T-Grizzly Kryonaut
- Pot: Der8auer BEAST
- Fans: Cooler Master Jetflow fans
How it went?
I managed to squeeze the 6950x CPU I’ve gotten from Intel South Africa to 5.125 GHz. This yielded me with a score of 29.07 points in Cinebench R11.5. I even got a 29.14 but I was unable to save the screenshot due to a cold bug. 🙁 And then following that I just couldn’t recover and get back to the same sort of speeds and settings …
In a nutshell, I managed to get another 100MHz out of the processor – that’s a good boost from the first time I tested it earlier last week. It’s a lot better than I expected which shows that sometimes you’ve got to keep on trying and not stall in first impressions. Another positive point for this session is the fact that the memory was also nicely tuned. The Kingston Technology HyperX Fury Black 2666 C15 base on AFR chips did great.
Now streaming on three platforms
Earlier this year I had already done some testing of the system with my crew, but this sessions was for me the very first time that I was streaming by myself on all three platforms at the same time:
Facebook : http://facebook.com/drweez.oc
- make sur to hit the subscribe button to get a notification when I go live.
Twitch : http://twitch.tv/drweez_oc
- this is where I get the chat from, to embed in the stream, so best is to keep the discussions there. You can watch on FB and pop out the chat only via this link.
YouTube / YouTube Gaming : http://youtube.com/drweez
- if you haven’t subscribed to my channel already, head this way.
What’s the point? Well simple: bandwidth. For me it’s easy to stream out a 1080p 3mbt/s but it’s not the case fore everyone. So now this way, which ever platform you are on, or whichever bandwidth you have, you can choose to watch from either services to accommodated your speed. Facebook streaming and YouTube streaming do offer lower bitrate transcoding of my stream, so you can easily stream at 480p or 720p to your desktop or mobile device. Quite practical!
Shoot out to my sponsors
I would like to also to take this occasion of writing this worklog to thanks my sponsor HyperX. HyperX which is sponsoring a whole year worth of ProOC – Awesome really! And also recently Intel South Africa for their support in this Round 3.
Coming up next
Stay tuned, I should be back tonight (EU time – 7/8pm-ish) with another live overclocking session. My focus will move a little bit with this time in mind the MSI Global Godlike OC Extreme competition. I’m really looking forward!

Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and give me a Follow also on Twitch and a like on Facebook. (Make sure to tick that little email notification thing so you get alerted when I go live.)
Until next time Happy Benching
