The third and final installment of the Challenger Division 2016 contest came to head just a few days ago, concluding probably the most comprehensive contest in the overclocking stratosphere. With a total of seven Divisions spanning every possible form of hardware and a broad selection of benchmarks and challenges that cater for just about every kind of overclocking in existence. Here in Part 1 we are focused on Divisions I, II and III - known to many of us as the Intel Divisions. Let’s take a look at the winners, scores and submissions in Round 3 of the Challenger Divisions.
$@39@ (Greece) Wins Challenger Division I: Intel Core i7 plus 1x GPU
The above title is in fact identical to its counterpart in the previous round as $@39@ (pronounced ‘saeger’ I think) proved to be the top dog for the second consecutive round. His win comes again on the back of a very dominant display garnering 496.5 points – 3.5 points off maximum. His closest competitor was MetalRacer with 439.2 points, followed by meankeys with 414.9 points.
Greek master $@39@ won Stage 1 with a SuperPi 32M run of 4min 26sec 156ms using a Core i7 6700K clocked at 6,850MHz (+71.25%). This is somewhat faster than runner up GtiJaston who mustered a run of 4min 53sec 94ms, an impressive score for a Haswell Core i7 4770K clocked at a whopping 6,300MHz (+80.00%). In third place Superpatodonaldo managed a run of 5mins 16sec 465ms using an i7 6700K pushed to 6,100MHz (+52.50%).
