Default OC Info Matrix - Any Value to HWC?

Just wondering if anyone sees any value in maintaining an OC matrix for this

board. I've seen some on other boards, but the biggest problem with them is

incomplete info. If there is interest, I'll do up the basic matrix in Excel and

submit it to the mods. What are your thoughts everyone?

I've got one running for a few of them (low dual-core series) and am putting together a few others as I comb the OC boards. Slow going, but I'm piecing it together, though it has been delayed a bit since I just graduated and moved cities. Welcome to give a hand though if you want.

The link to the matrix is in my sig

My original thinking was to do one up for only HWC members and their rigs. Your idea sounds quite a bit more all encompassing. Do you have minimum criteria for being included (amount of OC, etc.)?

We might be able to combine both our ideas by doing a dbase which is specific to the HWC community and linking to other well maintained dbases for comparison. Just a thought.

I wish I knew something about vBulletin, another area saying "Members Rigs or OC", could likely be set up under User CP. I'm not sure? I'm more than willing to contribute my time to an organized effort. IMHO it doesn't make any sense for everybody to be doing their own thing when we can develop better results together.

Anyways, being very new to OCing, I built an OC Work Log for excel which members are welcome to if they want. I set it up somewhat specific to my mobo, but if people want to give me their suggestions, I'll do what I can to make it more generic. It's got basic formulae and drop down lists built in. Here's a pic. Don't know how to distribute it though. Suggestions?

I like how yours is organized, but it may be too much information those who have motherboard bios' with fewer options - that being said, we can leave those entries blank. I'd love to work with you to update what I have and then spread out to the other CPUs.

As for HWC only, mine is inherently so because I only go through our OC forums. I realize that writing "combing through the OC boards" made it sound like I was looking elsewhere, when I should have said I was looking through HWC's OC threads.

Send me a PM and we'll work it out. Let me know what you think of the work I have already done! (It's a sticky in the OC section)

Great work so far Mr. Cipher! I'd be more than willing to collaborate with you (already PM'd to that effect). I think there's some real value to our community in keeping an accurate & complete dbase of OCs. I've already sent you some ideas though; so let me know.
