In Week 27 of 2017, we received 2828 benchmark results from 819 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 60% of the active community. They were responsible for 38% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
It's summer time in the northern hemisphere, which means that many people are either on a vacation break or it's simply too hot to overclock. Nevertheless, we find two golden cups on the leaderboard this week. First up is Dancop from Germany with a Global First Place in the XTU 6xCPU category. Dancop outpaced Sofos1990 by a mere 13 points. For this achievement he uses the Core i7 7800X processor clocked at 5905 MHz, a set of G.SKILL Trident Z at DDR4-3600C12 and the soon-to-be-released ROG Rampage VI Apex motherboard. Next up is BarboneNet from Australia with a Hardware First Place in the 3DMark06 Radeon HD 5850 category. To achieve a score of 40164 marks barboneNet uses a Core i7 7700K at 6800 MHz paired with a graphics card clocked at 1300/1250 MHz. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
The most used hardware components of Week 27 are the Core i7 7700K (11.6%), GeForce GTX 1070 (9.0%) and the ASUS ROG Maximus IX Apex (2.5%). In total the community used 333 different CPUs, 240 different GPUs and 779 different motherboards.
