Question on re-installing Windows 7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, I currently have W7 installed on my sig rig, however when I did all of this I had not yet discovered this forum and SSD optimization, etc etc.

Here is my issue. Right now my rig is finely tuned to my liking, from my cpu to my gpu's I have OC'd it all to exactly where I want it to be.

If I were to use my W7 CD and wipe clean my partions and then reinstalled, would it wipe out my OC's done in bios?
What all drivers would I need to reinstall? (GPU's given, but mobo ones, etc?)
Would I be able to reuse my key? I paid for this version of the OS and have the key and CD for it still, can I reuse that or would I need to buy it all new?

Thanks in advance!

So....why would you reinstall?

Does nothing to your BIOS.

If you are talking about my guide it says what to install. Basically your motherboard CD drivers, the newest SATA drivers from Intel or AMD, your GFX driver, and any other drivers you need for say an add on card like a sound card.

Yes you can reuse it lol. I you have OEM and you change the motherboard, that is the only time you would need a new key.
