We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.

First up in the gold this week is Sofos1990 from Greece. The in-house GIGABYTE overclocker has been very active in the weeks following the X299 platform launch. This week he registers a Global First Place in XTU 6xCPU with the Intel Core i7 7800X Skylake-X processor clocked at 5900 MHz. With 2984 marks the Greek scores 21 points higher than Dancop. Next is K|ngp|n from the USA. We haven't seen much action from the Taiwan based overclocking in the past couple of weeks, but he's back with a blast. He pushed the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to 2632/1620 MHz and scored a Global First Place in the 3DMark Time Spy 1xGPU category with 14219 marks. TITAN X, no need! The third golden cup of the week comes from Poland. Xtreme Addict figured it was time to revisit the legendary LGA775 platform and scored a super-high overclocking Core 2 Duo E6300. The hardware first place for the CPU Frequency now stands at 4839.72 MHz, about 150 MHz higher than the previous best. Last but not least there's NABE from Japan who nailed the 3DMark06 World Record with a single GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and a Core i7 7740X Kaby Lake-X clocked to 7128 MHz. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
