In Week 29 of 2017, we received 3305 benchmark results from 870 registered overclockers around the world. The majority of the submissions is coming from Rookie overclockers representing 59% 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.
With the Core X platform more readily available and the expansion of the Ryzen CPUs, enthusiasts have a lot of choice for their rigs. On the leaderboard this week we find 4 golden entries. First up is Dancop from Germany with a World Record in 3DMark03. He beat TeamAU and Rauf's earlier efforts by 5000 points using a Core i7 7740X processor clocked at 7170 MHz and a Titan Xp grapbics card clocked at 2379/1603 MHz. Next up is H2o vs. Ln2 from the United States who scored a hardware first place in the GeForce GTX 1070 3DMark Time Spy benchmark. The final score is 8143 marks with the graphics card overclocked to 2240/2451 MHz and a Broadwell-E Core i7 6950X overclocked to 4700 MHz. Both are of course cooled with custom loop water cooling. Now it's Italy-time! xMec scores a Global First Place in the 2xCPU HWBOT x265 1080P benchmark with a Core i3 7350K processor clocked at 6565 MHz. The benchmark only recently has points enabled and across all categories overclockers are currently aiming for the top spots. Last but not least we also have xXbladeXx from Italy. He scored a new hardware first place in the heavily contested Core i7 4790K XTU leaderboard. xXbladeXx manages to get his CPU stable at 6.1 GHz and scores 10 points more than Xtreme Addict. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
