GALAX GOC 2017 Worldwide Qualifier: Sept 2nd - October 1st

Other hardware restrictions include the use of any LGA1151 socket processor (Core i7 7700K or below). No limits are imposed on VGA, CPU or memory overclocks. Any form of cooling is allowed.
Stage 1: 3DMark Time Spy
The first stage of the contest is all about cranking up the VGA performance of your Pascal 1080 Ti card to score as highly as possible in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark. At the top of the table with ten days to go we find OGS (Greece) leading the way with a score of 11,758 marks. This was made with the HoF OC Lab Edition card pushed to a pretty amazing 2,570MHz on the GPU (+73.65%) and 1,570MHz (+14.10%) on graphics memory. In CPU terms his Core i7 7700K is also getting quite a workout, being pushed to a decent 6GHz (+42.86%).
