Default GIGABYTE Summer Spectacular 2017 Discussion

Greetings!

I see there is no thread started for this event and I have a question so I figured I would get one started.

Event Link: OC eSports

Here is the schedule as stated in the rules:
Stage 1: GPUPI for CPU 1B (runs 01/05 - 14/05)
Stage 2: 3DMark Ice Storm (runs 01/05 - 21/05)
Stage 3: Catzilla 720P (runs (01/05 - 31/05)

Will a GT730 GPU be required for participation in stage 1? I would assume its not required but I wanted to confirm. I am concerned because the schedule is very tight and I am not sure the required GPU will be in my hands by then.

Thanks for your time!
David

Noob question ( way of speaking )...

Are Z270 Gigabyte SOC boards considered LN2 ?
I know they are not, but just to confirm.

Thank you

Hi I've just looked at the rules and it looks like the GPU is specified as the GT730:

OC eSports

"STAGE 2: 3DMARK ICE STORM (RUNS 01/05 - 21/05)

limited to Core i3 7350K
limited to GeForce GT 730"

Please would you confirm that only the GT730 can be used?

For the 3D stages(GPU benchmarks), 730GT only, but for the 2D stage with gpupi for cpu (stage1) it doesn´t matter which vga you use

Bought an el cheapo gt730 but GPU-Z is calling it a gt630. I know it wont be competitive since it's a DDR3 ver. but I may not be able to buy another and already bought a Z170x SOC Force and average 7350k.

Question is, is it allowed. Core is GK208-301-A1 28nm 64bit bus 1024mb ram with same default clocks as gt730 pictured

Does the specs sticker say GT730? If yes, I would tend to allow it if you post an additional picture of the gpu with specs/sn sticker that shows it was sold as 730

Before I pull the trigger on GT 730's, all models are allowed? I'm looking at the 2gb gddr5 versions.

Id assume as well volt mods are allowed for the ambient entries? Seems like a great time to learn, especially considering the cost of the cards.
