In Week 24 of 2017, we received 3140 benchmark results from 831 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 62% 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 we're progressing through the summer - at least for the northern hemisphere - overclocking activity is slowing down a bit. Nevertheless we are happy to find two golden cups in the overview this week. The first gold goes to TeamAU from Australia for a World Record in Unigine Heaven Xtreme. To achieve this feat, the Australians used a 7GHz Core i7 7740K Kaby Lake-X processor paired with two GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards clocked at 2100/1530 MHz. Next up is Buildzoid from the Czech Republic and main main of the Actually Hardcore Overclocking YouTube channel we regularly feature on the front page. He scores a golden cup in the 3DMark Time Spy GeForce GTX 1070 hardware ranking. For this, the Czech overclockers uses a Core i7 6950X at 4428 MHz and a liquid nitrogen cooled GTX 1070 clocked at 2367 / 2430 MHz. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
The most used hardware components of Week 24 are the Core i7 7700K (10.9%), GeForce GTX 1070 (9.0%) and the ROG Crosshair VI Hero (3.1%).
