Day 1: December 17th - GOC Grand Final
Running from October 7th to the 10th of November of this year, an online qualification contest attracted 25 of the world’s top overclockers. The top twelve overclockers of that contest were then invited to compete in the Final in Wuhan, the capital city of Central China’s Hubei province. The Final took place over two days, with Day 1 branded the GOC Grand Final were all twelve overlockers went head to head to decide who would be this year’s GOC Champion. Day 2 was all about breaking records with cash prizes on offer for World Records and Top Hardware scores:
In Stage 1 we find the current World No.1 Dancop in pole position, showing off his skills at pushing out every ounce of performance to come first in 3DMark11 Physics. His score of 18,508 points was made using a Broadwell-E Core i7 6850X processor pushed to 4,804MHz (+33.44%). The score was doubtlessly also influenced by some tight memory timings on GALAX Hall of Fame DDR4 kit. In fact this score was a hardware first place for a Core i7 6850X and the second best for a six core processor overall.
