Yeah, going from AMD to Intel, or from Intel to AMD, presents a much greater risk of problems.

Prob had speedstep turned on thus his problem with the throttling. I had the same prob when i moved from the E6600 to this chip. He should just read up more on how to overclock on his new chip.

I don't think this is what he was describing either. The BIOS was not declocking after a failed OC attempt. With the ASUS P67 motherboards, you have the option of keeping a permanent OC setting (i.e. 4.5Ghz) where the CPU stays at that frequency at all times, or you can have the CPU automatically idle down to 1.6Ghz when not being used heavily and only turbo up to the OC setting when needed. It seems that the OP wanted to keep his overclock at his chosen speed at all times, but for whatever reason the BIOS was keeping the setting where the CPU would automatically throttle down. So, in the middle of his gaming, the CPU would throttle down briefly for a few seconds, causing the FPS to drop substantially.
It is updated to the latest bios and still shows splash screen twice. Like I said I reinstalled the game which might have been the problem or the updated bios. Disabling the C's made my processor steady at 4.0ghz. If you disable speedstep and epu it will still downclock its self. When it failed to overclock and I had to hit F1 to reset the defualts. I have been working for discount computers for 3 years now repairing and going on site.

A lot of the "must do fresh install" thinking is simply a relic from the past when it was absolutely true.

With Windows 7, there isn't much of a difference between swapping in a new motherboard and swapping in a new video card. In both cases, the OS sees that the hardware is different and installs the necessary drivers to run the new hardware.
you are correct. all you are doing when you install new hardware be a cpu, motherboard, video card anything windows will recongnize it and all you will have to do is install the driver. drivers are all you need in order for hardware to work. drivers have the instruction set for windows to allow it to work properly. I don't know what these yahoos are talking about or if any have any college education at all....This is probably near 50th build for me.Not dissing this forum or anything but it takes around 5 pages and 50 opinions to reach the correct answer. (another thread) I know you all are trying to help and I should have posted more information on my bios settings/version but you all state the obvious. In that case I'll just do some research and figure it out on my own.

wasnt speedstep lol it was c1 c3 and c6 disabling. I have known about speedstep when they introduced it many years ago.
