> Erik, can you teach me how to reach maximum load  ? at least what is your command line use for that ?

Just like the documentation says, leave all threading options like they
are, don't try to outsmart libx265, it will assign threads optimally.

If you think your cores aren't used optimally, you can always start a
second transcoding session.

I find libx265 (from ffmpeg) refreshingly simple to configure for
optimal results, almost nothing needs to be tweaked, contrary to libx264.
