In Week 2 of 2017, we received 4328 benchmark results from 1121 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 64% of the active community. They were responsible for 42% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
The year 2017 is off to a strong start with Kaby Lake pushing the excitement for overclocking up in anticipation for AMD's Ryzen launch on February 28, 2017. In the second week of the year we once more find Dancop from Germany grabbing the top spot in the Elite category with a World Record in SuperPI 32M. The German overclocker outpaced Fredyama by a couple milliseconds and he posted 4min 17sec 359ms with the Core i7 7700K at 7048.2MHz. In the 3D category we find K|ngp|n from the USA. In the 3DMark11 Performance benchmark he scores a Global First Place with 2 GPUs, which also gives him second place in the overall Hall of Fame. Impressive! Last but not least we're happy to include Rtsurfer in the list of golden cup winners of the week. Backed by a strong retail Core i7 7700K, the US-based overclocker outscored all the industry-backed overclockers' results from launch week and takes the Cinebench 4xCPU Global First Place. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard this week!
