It’s official. After an entire year of overclocking contests throughout a busy year, visiting ten countries around the globe, we finally have a new Overclocking World Champion – the one and only rsannino from Italy. The contest featured some the world’s most feared extreme overclockers with rsannino (Italy) competing alongside steponz (US), PXHX (Brazil), Dancop (Germany), Drweez (S. Africa), BlueFiber (Indonesia), Wizerty (France), Lucky_n00b (Indonesia) and jordan.hyde99 (Australia). All competing for the right to be crowned Overclocking World Champion 2017, walking away with a check for $1,500 USD.
The contest was held at the Caseking HQ in Berlin, Germany over the weekend. Saturday was all about competing across five stages and benchmarks using the latest Coffee Lake architecture Core i7 7800K chips. After a full day of overclocking Wizerty was just ahead of rsannino on the score card, offering them both a less heavy day in Sunday’s 1v1 matches. After beating steponz (US) in the 8th and final round of the 1v1 match series, rsannino pulled out a 3DMark01 score of 661.7 marks, beating steponz on 568.6 marks to win the Championship. Congrats to you Roberto! The final standings in the contest are as follows:
