Genius motherboard app from Gigabyte

So I'm looking through Gigabyte's website for some apps for my 990FXA-UD5 when it comes this Wednesday, and I found Cloud OC. What is Cloud OC? It allows for overclocking from a smartphone, netbook, tablet-anything on the internet. But wait-there's more. What's the point of overclocking if you can't benchmark? You can overclock AND run P95 or Linx, from a smartphone. This is just an incredible idea, considering most overclockers run a stability program for over 12 hours, now you can see if your system goes down while at work and tweak settings and bench again.

Just thought I'd share this as I don't know if anyone else has noticed this before.

Actually... I never thought of it that way!

Until recently I've been thinking of these apps as another one of those useless apps or features that motherboard manufacturers try to include, but I think I'm going to seriously reconsider that...

Only problem is if something ridiculous happens and you're not at home, i.e. VRMs blow and set your house on fire, you're on vacation and can't really do anything about it

Yeah, maybe if you're ultra rich you can build an LN2 dispenser which can dispense LN2 for 1 month and while you're on vacation lying on a beach with your smartphone you're actually doing some hardcore overclocking.
