German overclocker Digg_de won two gold medals in the ranks of a dual-core, four-thread Intel Core i3-6100 chip.
Both records were set using the same benchmark, but are classified into two disciplines: HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 1080p and HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 4k.
In both cases, the Core i3-6100 chip was overclocked to 3801MHz, but Digg_de was able to maintain the stability of the DDR4 RAM at 3972MHz for the “1080p” test, and in “4K” the RAM speed dropped to 3836MHz.
HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 1080p:
HWBOT x265 Benchmark – 4k:
It should be noted that overclocking the RAM to ~ 3900 MHz helped the enthusiast to earn these records. The overclocking of the Core i3-6100 itself is practically identical to the achievements of the past Jokot and avalanche record holders.
The German test setup consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASUS Maximus VIII Impact
- CPU cooling – water cooling system
- RAM – 2 DDR4 strips x 8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws V F4-3600C17-8GVK
- Power supply – Seasonic Platinum 1200 watt
