3,2,1 Go!

The day started with a lucky draw. The same CPUs as yesterday are used but no possibility for the clockers to see the serial number. Too bad lucky_n00b.. didn’t got the same as yesterday.

Since the beginning, some clockers decided to create a team to have more chances to break some records. Giorgioprimo and Xtreme Addict help each other, smoke is turning around cyclone and t0lsty and the other clockers share advices from each other. Compared to yesterday, today is more friendly and they really want to be the best and beat records.

First World Record

Less than two hours after the beginning, Rbuass is the first to submit a world record on Unigine Heaven – Xtreme Preset.  SniperOZ was the previous holder of that world record with 4571.3 pts. During the day, Rbuass kept scoring on this bench. He submitted 5 times going from 4600.62 to 4697.82

Second World Record

After Rbuass it’s Vivi’s turn to break a world record. He chose to bench on Cinebench R11.5 with 4Cores. Previously, Smoke had the world record with 13.84 pts. Vivi reached 13.91 points.

Third World Record

1 hour before the end of the competition oc_windforce from Korea surprises everyone. He broke the XTU 6x record with 1891 points.
