In part three of our OCWC 2017 Final, Overclocker Profile series we are happy to introduce one of the real living legends of the game, the current Worldwide No.1 ranked overclocker on HWBOT, the one and only Dancop from Germany. Join us as we take a peek at how Dancop qualified for the OCWC 2017 Final and also take a look at the man behind the LN2 flask.
The Man Behind the LN2 Flask: Dancop (Germany)
For the last few years it’s reasonable to say that the rankings on HWBOT have been consistently dominated by one overclocker, a man known to many of us as Daniel Schier who goes by the nickname Dancop. Dancop is an Elite league HWBOT member who first signed up back in September 2008. After being introduced to Extreme, sub-zero overclocking with LN2 by his friend and one-time mentor der8auer, he has simply not looked back. Despite the best efforts of rsannino (Italy) and Xtreme Addict, two guys who have had a taste of what it feels like to Worldwide No.1, Dancop has been No.1 for quite some time. Even if, on the rare occasion he finds that he slipped to second place, it’s usually only a few days or weeks before he regains his spot at the top of the rankings.
The Road to the OCWC 2017 Final
Dancop qualified for the OCWC 2017 Final by winning the OCWC Poitier 2017 Qualifier contest which took place at Gamers Assembly, traveling to France from Germany specifically to compete in the event. After coming second in the Qualification stage, just behind Wizerty (France) he pitted against orion24 in the first Semi-Final 1v1 match. The benchmark draw thew up the classic 3DMark11 Physics, a benchmark which may well have favored the World No.1 who is well respected for his ability to get the most performance from system memory, something that helps a great deal in this benchmark. After 30 mins of intense benching with LN2, Dancop had arrived at a score of 17,505 marks while orion24 remained on 15,018 marks. Dancop moved on to the next round.
