undo CPU/Mem overclocks before swapping gpu?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just wondering what your thoughts on this are:

I'm going to be replacing the outdated HD 4890 inside my tower with an EVGA 570. Do you think I should undo any overclocks to the CPU/anything else (essentially set the BIOS to default settings again) before putting in the new gfx card?

I ask because I just recently installed a new cooler and would love to start overclocking it again but my new gfx card will be arriving in a few days...

Thanks.

If you haven't started overclocking yet, then you mine as well wait for the card.

It problably wouldn't hurt much, if anything if you had a simple OC on your CPU/RAM and just placed in your card.

It woul come down to when you have everything running to the "t" and every little bit is OC'd to perfrection, that's when you would worry about placing in a new card. Not all OC's are going to play nice with new hardware coming in.

So if you really want to start and OC, then start with just a mild OC until your card comes in. Then once you place your new card, go from there .
