Optimizing Handbrake transcoding

I'm going to make a vm or 2 for windows to use for Handbrake transcoding. I know that Handbrake isn't well optimized for use with more that 6 cores and with my dual xeon 2670's, I've got plenty of cores.  Since I'm going to be opening at least 2 instances of Handbrake per vm, I just don't know if running 2 instances across say 6 cores is more efficient than 4 across 12 cores. Would Handbrake be able to use everything better in the first or second case scenario?

As they are VMs personally I'd just test it for myself and see which number of cores is most efficient.

Router:  Quotom-Q555G6-S05 running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen VDSL (~74Mbit) + VOXI 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)
