Xtreme Addict it seems is not interested in taking a summer break from his main passion, Overclocking. In fact it seems that the World No.2 is doing everything in his power to catch with Dancop in the world rankings on HWBOT. Today we find XA taking aim both the 720p and 1440p Catzilla World Records armed with an Intel Core i7 6950X and 3x GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards. In almost hilarious fashion, the new 720p score busts the 100k barrier and can thusl actually be described as off the scale i.e. the score literally does not fit within the app's score field.
The new Catzilla 720p World Record is a massive 100,179 marks, significantly ahead of the previous best of 96,708 marks from Dancop. It’s the addition of that extra sixth digit that breaks the app developer's mold, as you can see in the screenshot above.
The score was made with a Broadwell-E Core i7 6950X tuned to 5,125Mhz, a huge +70% beyond the deca-core chip’s default settings. Vitally, he employed three of his limited edition Galax (KFA2) GTX 980 Ti Hall of Fame LN2 GOC cards, all of which had GPUs tuned to be 53% faster than stock, hitting a tasty 1,650MHz with graphics memory also cranked higher to 2,175MHz (+24%).
To crack the Catzilla 1440p World Record, XA used the same Rampage V Edition 10 motherboard, i7 6950X processor, however adding an additional GTX 980 Ti HOF LN2 GOC card to hit a score of 5,7175 marks. This time edging past (and taking points off) 8 Pack from the UK.
The points haul for Xtreme Addict puts him almost within sight of the World No.1 spot on HWBOT. The Catzilla 1440p WR run earns him 130 points while the 720p record is worth 144.5 WR and Global points. This all means that our Polish OC master is only 58.4 points away from overcoming Germany's dancop.

Elite Overclocker and current World No.2, Michal “Xtreme Addict” Vobozil examines the issues involved with DDR4 4x4GB overclocking at maximum efficiency levels, comparing and testing Z170 motherboards from four major vendors.
Featuring HyperX Fury DDR4 Memory: Today I bring you another article for both the Extreme OC Community [XOC] and daily OC enthusiasts, this time focusing on 24/7 stability with proper (tight) settings with all memory DIMM slots filled. I hope the information gathered in this article will help users to forget about Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (“XMP”) and unleash the full potential of their systems.
I have tried to included lot of detailed information in this article, combining a memory setting guide with OC tests of four popular motherboards. The results present us with a lot of interesting facts. Let’s look at MSI’s case – a strong connection with Kingston HyperX and full cooperation to make the HOT Final as good as it could be results in a very mature, fine-tuned BIOS for Hynix AFR memories. This is one of the facts why extreme overclocking is important and how it affects daily enthusiasts – where there is a demand for the best possible performance/result, more engineers are involved into making the product flawless. Please note that for the test I used the newest BIOS, and indeed it included the implementation of all HOT BIOS tweaks.

Just like every month we have a look at the SuperPI 32M low-clock challenge threads in our forum and make a list of the most efficient overclocks for various CPU architectures. In the Intel category, Splave (United States) is currently still leading with his Skylake submission of 5 min 53.296 seconds. He improved his previous best by tuning the memory further to DDR4-4086 C12-11-11-28 In the AMD category the competition with Excavator is pushing AMD towards the 10 minute mark for sub-5GHz submissions. L0ud_sil3nc3 (United States) is currently leading the race with a time of 10 min 12.078 seconds. Splave also grabs the top result for Zambezi, edging out fellow countryman Bones by two seconds.
Check out the full table below. For more information and efficient SuperPI 32M overclocking results, check out the low-clock threads in our Overclocking and Tweaking sub-forum and the SuperPI 32M Low Clock - Fastest Per Architecture forum thread.
Congratulations to all the leaders in their specific categories!
