Most Valuable Submission of Week 31, 2015: 146 points by K|ngp|n (United States)

Last week we received about 3765 benchmark results from 901 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 60% of the active community. They were responsible for 40% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.

As you can see in the table below, the most valuable submission of the week was the Global First Place of K|ngp|n in 3DMark Fire Strike using a single GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card. We covered his overclocking escapades with the new K|ngp|n edition graphics card in a newsflash article earlier this week, highlighting breaking the 13,000 marks barrier in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme. With 146 points K|ngp|n yields about 80 points more than UK based ObscureParadox who has been very active lately. In the Rookie area we see Davidmoffitt scoring 44 points in XTU with a Core i7 5930K and (go check out the submission!) 64GB of DDR4-2666 memory.

The overclocking results submitted during Week 31 generated in total 550 World Record Points, 5410.8 Global Points, and 6796.5 Hardware Points. The distribution per League is as follows: 21% for Elite, 31% for Extreme, 19% for Enthusiast, 9% for Novice, and 20% for Rookie. The representation of the active community is as follows: 2% Elite, 13% Extreme, 13% Enthusiast, 12% Novice, and 60% Rookie.

ObscureParadox and Ximi have been in this table a couple times. Nice!

Mine would be worth more if it wasn't for Romans backup :P Cheers though PJ :)

It is normal.
Rookies, like myself a year ago, have the eye of the tiger.
They eat, drink, sleep a little and bench a lot.
Enthusiasts are more mature, but also more careful on what they bench and how.
Still though ( judging SOLELY from myself ) we are not brave enough to make the big step.
As we climb the ladder, extreme over clockers, are limited only by the quality of the hardware at hand, thus making them the most admirable category because they directly challenge the laws of physics.

Just my 2 cents.

The extreme guys have also generally been going for much longer and have learned all the tricks in the book for efficiency. Although there is still much for many of us to learn, you can never stop learning really :) I wouldn't say our results are more valuable, only from a points perspective of course since we can naturally run higher clocks, but I have a lot of respect for the enthusiast guys that can embarras the extreme people with their results, especially if they are getting better results on Air/water compared to LN2 ;)

TRUE.:) I HAVE to note though, paraphrasing Massman's "When ignorance, motivation and courage meet, a persistent idiot awakens", to " When wisdom, knowledge and talent meet, a star is born". I was present at an extreme overclocking session a few days ago, when two members of the ELITE category, did their magic. Indeed I was shaking a bit, when liters of LN2 were pouring in the cpu and gpu pots. They noticed that I was very "uncomfortable", to say the least, and they started laughing. Come on man, have a go, they said. ARE YOU NUTS ??? I went outside, smoked a cigarette and re-entered the lab, only to see them cool, running a 5960X at almost 6ghz, and four GTX980ti at -110. Funny thing, THEY WERE NOT SATISFIED with the end result. Oh my...:nana:

Just give it a go on something cheap you're not afraid to break and go from there, you'll soon get the bug and have no worries about it afterwards :)

10 years ago, this would've been written by Hipro5 :D :celebration:

Real shame George ( Hipro5 ) lost motivation. A very bright mind and an extreme talent. I remember the days of Prometeia Mach II. There was not a single over clocker not to take his advice and/or take their machine to George for tuning. Real shame.

Belgium Massman says:

Yeah, Hipro5 was a very strong personality. We need more people like him in this community :)
