Two questions really; Can old drivers of any kind cause the difficulty of reaching a stable OC? and should a complete reinstall be done on a motherboard exchange?

Not sure if this would cause overclocking instability, but you should always reinstall your OS after replacing your motherboard.
If you haven't done this and are getting problems, I'd recommend trying this at least

Yea you're going to need a complete reinstallation unless you replaced it with the same motherboard (make, model). Even then I would still reinstall Windows, because when you install it to begin with, it's seeing the hardware currently in your system. At the very beginning of the install it says "Setup is anazlyzing your hardware configuration." I would recommend a complete reinstall.
