Maxi is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Do we really...

Need a section just for this board? What about ASUS? MSI? EVGA? This seems a little silly to me.

I think the idea is that the more publicity the board is given the more likely they are to make more dedicated OC boards.

Asus, evga and msi can all have a dedicated section as well. They only need to make a dedicated oc board :-)

I forgot that Gigabyte is the first (and only if I read well) manufacturer to create a board with OC features

I dunno, but what about other, OC related stuff? Like afterburner, lightning series, etc. I'd say those things are just as OC related as the gigabyte mobo. A section for Lightning overclocking would be cool, and maybe some afterburner subforum. Maybe that one wont be that active, but it would be a good source of information about releases etc.

Memory series, there are a lot that aim more overclockers than gamers.
AMD Black Editions CPUs
Intel K series CPUs (Xtreme series is too expensive to be an overclocking stuff ), Cedar Mills ?

Cedar mills aren't "made for overclockers". K-chips, maybe - as they're advertized as being for overclockers. Black Edition... dunno, but I dont really think so.

Nah. Don't let the sticker 'overclock power' fool you
