In Week 31 of 2017, we received 3559 benchmark results from 898 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 41% of the submissions. We had a peek at the most valuable submissions in a breakdown per league.
Splave is the first in our list of golden cup winners this week. The US-based overclocker scored a Global First Place in the HWBOT Prime 2xCPU category with a Core i3 7350K processor clocked at 6870 MHz. His final result of 6051.02pps is about 25pps higher than Rsannino's. Next up is Dancop from Germany with a World Record in 3DMark Vantage Performance. He took the crown from K|ngp|n who grabbed the record three days earlier. Dancop pairs a Core i9 7900X Skylake-X at 5827 MHz with two GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards at 2366/1552 MHz. Next we have a Hardware First Place by BarboneNet. The golden cup is achieved in the 3DMark06 2xRadeon HD 4870 ranking and results from pairing a 5.3GHz Core i7 7700K with two liquid nitrogen cooled graphics cards clocked at 1000/975 MHz. Moving into the Extreme League we find the inevitable $@39@ from Greece with a Global First Place in 3DMark Time Spy 1xGPU. Taking away another top spot from K|ngp|n, the Greek overclocker pushed the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti to 2630/1611 MHz and paired it with a Core i9 7900X at 5711 MHz. Impressive! Last but not least we have Miker2ka from Romania with a Hardware First Place in XTU Core i5 6500. He grabs the 49.9 hardware points by beating no less than 11 (!) people who were stuck at 1110 marks. Congratulations to everyone making the leaderboard!
