Is this the only hobby without a national or even a local organized chapter of enthusiasts? Got a nice car? Take your pick of nicely organized clubs that cater to every segment of automobiles. Like dogs? They got dog clubs, the AKC comes to mind. Anything you can think of is supported at least in some small way by a group of dedicated folks who want to promote even more of whatever it is they're interested in. It gives newer hobbyists with a similar interest a good starting point for finding answers or people that can help them. HardwareCentral is a wonderful place to exchange ideas and information, don't get me wrong(and pull this post). It does its intended job very well. It's not human, though. There is a vast amount of overclocking knowledge in this site, but it keeps scrolling by - much as this post will. I hate to re-type the same response over and over and over. You can count on me to ALWAYS answer the question one more time, because there must have been a time that I myself asked a question that had been asked a thousand times already. And it was most likely answered in a friendly manner by someone(Sterling Aug comes to mind) who had typed the same reply countless times before. I couldn't help it that it was my turn to ask, and neither can anyone else. Although I rambled on a bit, my point is that there needs to be some way to collect all this good information and experience that keeps scrolling by.

Now thats a real good idea!
When I look at my mailbox at work, it's 60% work and 40% people asking what CPU or mobo they should get, why their computer is bluescreening when oc'ing etc. I apreciate all these mails, but sometimes it's too many so I can't reply to all.

A site dedicated for oc'ers with FAQ, mailing-lists or something like that would help newbies alot, and I think it could be quite interesting to old members of the "oc-society" as well. Why not share all the good(crazy) ideas of yours to the rest of the world?? Why not have a database of "how to" and why? Heck, how many oc'ers are there really worldwide?

Unite goddamn!!

I like that idea - let's set up an O/C UG!! We could have local chapters, annual meetings around the country... Let's see if we can get gore to subsidise it - heck we wouldn't be able to do all this information exchange if he didn't invent the internet now would we??? ::duck and run::

Seriously though, an OCUG would be fun - anyone in the philly area???

Well, sounds like fun but what would you do at one of these meetings? Stand around and look at the hosts computer? Or would the members all bring there own comps? Would the host buy a new cpu and see how high the group could overclock it before the night was over? Could be an on going project that the club could work on at meetings. If everyone brought their comps it would be a lan party before the night was over.

We can rent an industrial walk-in freezer and have o/c tournaments!! "Starting at default speed, the first person to successfully o/c their CPU to 300mhz above stock and boot into windows gets a shiny gold heat sink. <drool>

I purchased the domain <a href="http://www.waterinside.com">Water Inside</a> this summer for my water cooling project, but unfortunately with college crap and HS in general I havent had enough time to work on it. Im wondering if a couple people wanna help me out with it. I really want to turn it into an alternate cooling site but right now anything will do. I would really like help from people such as TNproud2b who are willing to take risks and are innovative.

We all need to form a rebellion against the evil people who say that ocing is bad. Wow big deal when you oc you take life away from the chip. Lets form an overclocking guerrilla rebellion!!!
Does anybody think that they can actually start an ocing club online?
I would definately join.

Yes you can overclock both CPU's, however the c400a's may only make 450 and be stable at 500 eg 83 mhz fsb setting can stoop some Hard disks.

If you get real lucky they will both do 600 eg 100mhz fsb, but don't expect this, just hope for it.

Helping others is great fun, i just only wish that more people would say thank you, cause no one ever thanks you at work when their computers are running perfectly, but when it fails all hell brakes loose.

Luke i am your father!!!!
yeah thanks for helping me with that
So can somebody create a website for an overclocking club?
I'm not the the best overclocker right now though.
The best that I've ever overclocked was a celly 400 to 550.
I just dont want to waste a lot of money buying a $100 liquid cooling system on a cpu thats gonna be dead in a year after overclocking so high.
But i still think its fun overclocking all of my friends cpus.

Really if someone is to take it upon them selves to make a site to do this they are gonna have to have a lot of time on thier hands to answer questions. unless they will not except email. hehehe. It would be nice to have a website that you could go to when you have a question especially for newbee's.

Some one post the info on it if they decide to start one or find one on the web already running.

Dudes, if you read the past posts, ive already said that http://www.waterinside.com is open for overclocking crap. All that it needs is a better webhost (right now its HyperMart.net) and it'll be all good.

Hello all. This sounds like an interesting idea. I know of a good hosting company. http://www.simplenet.com/ Rather, their service plans seem good. I have never used them personally so I can not say anything positive or negative about their service.

This all looks good. I am considering taking on this central forum for overclockers. A web site with no sensless advertising for products that overclockers don't need for overclocking. Just a centralized meeting place for us all. Free in every way. Free speach, free spirit, and definately free of charge.

I would love to run the site, I even have a server I can redirect some of the traffic from the domain host off of. I could keep downloads and such on it. I was going to make it into a Starcraft server after I got my Athlon up and running late next month anyway. Hmmm. I'll administer the site, the email contacts, the downloads, etc. I'll work on the design and such. I need support from you guys though. If this is going to be a site for everybody, I will not be the only one doing all of the work here.

You guys have inspired me, but I will need some help. For example, the idea of the database, or an interactive help file maybie. Good ideas, but I am not a database wiz, nor have I ever in the past integrated a database into a web page. So I would need some one who has the desire and the know how to work on the setup. While some of the more experienced of us could write the content for the help file. You know, questions that are allways asked on the boards and such. Is anyone interested in working with me?

Crap!!!!!
There are no clubs dedicated to overclockers!!!
I've been looking for a day now.
But I could understand someone not wanting to start one because i am the only computer literate person out of all of my friends and they ask me to fix their computers all of the time.
One time my friend was installing a dos program and it asks to modify the autoexec.bat, so he opened the autoexec.bat with notepad, and on the first line he just wrote the name of the program that he wanted to run.
I had to fix it like the time i had a drunken expirement with linux.

One last note people who do really stupid things like that or people who use iMacs should be considered second-class citizens
