Does someone have a chart or a spreadsheet that can show all of Greg's machines and how much EU/t it takes per overclocker added and whether it will require LV or MV or whatever.

I was aware of this, but I was hoping that since different recipes take different EU/t, I was wondering of I added one overclocker, would I have an assembling machine require MV for current recipes.

The maximum input of a GregTech machine is not affected by overclockers, only its energy consumption. This means if you overclock a machine enough, it could be practically impossible to power it unless you use transformer upgrades and feed it a higher energy line.
You can also consider providing lots of energy storage upgrades to the machine and running the machine infrequently so it has time to build up energy for the next set of operations.
Many machines, such as the assembling machine, have different energy consumptions per recipe (viewable via NEI), so it would be silly to describe the energy usage of the machine in general. Machines based off of IC2 such as the automatic macerator and stuff, have the same energy consumption as their IC2 equivalents.
Calculating the energy needed is quite simple: base * 2^overclocks. In a tabular format this is as follows.
# overclocks -> formula
0 -> base * 1
1 -> base * 4
2 -> base * 16
3 -> base * 64
4 -> base * 256
Because each overclock only speeds up the machine by a factor of two, this means that for each overclock, the machine consumes twice as much energy per operation, reaching 16 times more energy per operation for the max of 4 overclocks.
In terms of energy lines, ultra low voltage is 5 EUP, low voltage is 32 EUP, medium voltage is 128 EUP, high voltage is 512 EUP, extreme voltage is 2048 EUP, gregtech extreme voltage is 8192 EUP, and overkill insanity voltage is 1000000 EUP.
Remember that all gregtech machines will reset their progress if they run out of energy, so make sure you provide a solid energy line, and possibly storage upgrades.
Also make sure you never ever accidentally give too high of a voltage to a machine, unless you want your entire factory to blow up.

Thank you. This is perfect

Did something change about over clockers? The IC2 wiki says this:

Each upgrade reduces the operating time to 70% of the previous value and increases energy consumption by 60%. The overclocker upgrade's effects stack exponentially. For example, two upgrades makes the machine operate at (0.7)^2 = 0.49 times normal time (100% faster) and use 1.6^2 = 2.56 times the energy (139% more). 8 of them will run the machine at over 8 times normal speed, and use over 43 times as much EU.

Ahhhh. And now I know.

So, this only affects Gregtech machines specifically? Does it change overclockers I put into an electric furnace?

Overclocking for IC2 machines is unaffected by GregTech.
However with GregTech by default you won't be able to craft many IC2 machines to begin with, instead you'll be using Greg's alternatives which use GregTech style overclocking.
So Electric Furnace will use IC2 overclocking, but Automatic E-Furnace will use GregTech overclocking.
