The new leader in the Overclockers League has been playing with a retail Core i7 8700K processor and it's been doing excellent. The golden cup is achieved in the XTU 6xCPU benchmark where Dancop hit a score of 3723 marks which is 62 points higher than Alex@ro's launch result. The CPU frequency is 6700 MHz. Next up is Rauf from Sweden who's took an important single GPU Global First Place in the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark. Following K|ngp|n and Xtreme Addict in the chase for 15K, the Swedish overclocker is now in the lead with a score of 14700 points. The graphics card used is of course the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in combination with a 5600 MHz Core i9 7980XE processor. The clock frequencies of the graphics card are 2721/1645 MHz. Last but not least there's Hideo from Japan with a Hardware First Place in the GeForce GTX 580 Aquamark ranking. Paired with a 6925 MHz Core i7 7700K Kaby Lake processor, the new top score is 632301 marks. That is almost 3000 points higher than runner-up Bullshooter. Congrats everyone!
