The Road to Pro contest series just came to the end of Round 1 a few days ago. The pinnacle of the series, in purely performance and hardware terms is the Pro OC Division. This due to the fact that it includes (almost) no restrictions regarding what hardware may be used. Overclockers with access to plenty of LN2, high-end GPUs and the most expensive CPUs and motherboards are invited to compete in a no-holds-barred contest where the fastest wins. Let’s take a look at all the scores, the submissions, the winners and the also-rans in this round up article.
Pro OC Division: Round 1 - Febuary 1st - March 31st 2017
Here are the benchmarks involved in Round 1 of the Road to Pro Pro OC Division:
Stage 1: wPrime - Stage 1 was all about pushing CPUs and tweaking memory, benching on the classic wPrime 32M benchmark. At the top of the table we find Splave from the US showing his talent with a wPrime 32M run of just 1sec 718ms. This score was done with an Intel Core i7 6950X pushed to 5,206MHz, a very impressive +73.53% beyond stock settings. In terms of memory Splave configured his G.SKILL Trident Z kit to 1,334MHz (19-18-18-44) using an ASRock X99M Killer motherboard.
