New 3DMark World Records Set in GALAXY Overclocking Contest

April 9, 2013

After four weeks of intense competition, the results are in for our first official 3DMark overclocking competition. Sponsored by GALAXY and KFA2, the 3DMark Ice Storm Overclocking Contest challenged contestants to submit the highest scores in Ice Storm, Cloud Gate and Fire Strike using GALAXY and KFA2 brand graphics cards.

Overall, there was a very high level of competition but it was Team HKEPC who rose to the top with an outstanding show of overclocking skill, achieving a clean sweep with the highest scores in all three contest categories. What's more, in the Ice Storm and Cloud Gate categories the winning results are new 3DMark world records.

The Futuremark Overclocking Hall of Fame is home to the world's highest 3DMark scores set by the most talented overclockers with the most extreme hardware. We validate all benchmark results to ensure that scores accurately reflect each system's true performance. The Hall of Fame is the only source of official 3DMark world records.
