The ROG Camp Final drew to a close yesterday evening with Rookie Bene11660 taking a clear win and booking himself a birth in Today’s World Championship 2016 Final. Bene11660 won the contest with dominant display that earned him straight wins in all three stages, while Swiss overclockers DSLREye and TAGG made second and third places respectively.
The ROG Camp is a pretty special event. Held annually in Germany it gives overclockers with little or no experience of subzero overclocking a chance to join an LN2 boot camp with veteran Roman ‘der8auer’ Hartung . The online qualification contest was held to decide who gets to joins with eight overclockers attending a the LN2 workshop, followed by a day of competitive extreme overclocking.
In Stage 1 of the contest Bene11660 used a Core i7 6700K pushed to an impressive 6,450MHz to score 7,074 points in Geekbench3. The chip was certainly pushing the edges of performance pulling around 2 volts. In Stage 2 he configured the same chip to 6,200MHz to score 1,396 cb points in Cinebench R15. Also with the CPU pushed to 6.2GHz in GPUPI for CPU 1B we have Bene completing a run in 4min 13sec 817ms. All contestants used an ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme motherboard and Apacer DDR4 memory.
In fairness it’s no longer technically correct to refer to Bene11660 as a Rookie. Despite only signing up at HWBOT in October of this year, he is now considered an Extreme overclocker, along with all other ROG Camp participants who have made submission using LN2 this week. In Qualification Bene11660 finished 7th overall, so this convincing win would certainly indicate that he has picked up a few tips from der8auer this week.
A huge congrats to Bene11660 and in fact also to runner-up DSLREye who now join the World Championship Final (which is actually kicking off right about now). DSLREye joins the contest as Hazzan could not make it to Germany this time around. He joins a roster that includes many of the world’s best overclockers; PXHX (Brazil), DrWeez (South Africa), Bullshooter (Germany), Marc0053 (Canada), Xtreme Addict (Poland), and Lucky_n00b (Indonesia).
