Will overclocking my GPU limit my CPU at all?<br />
<br />
I overclocked my GPU and I can't overclock my CPU one bit at all now...

That's strange. I've never heard of that before, both my GPU and CPU are highly overclocked. :-\\<br />
<br />
Did some setting in BIOS clear due to the GPU oc? I don't understand that at all...

The only thing I can think of is that the GPU is taking too much power now that it is OC'd. But since that is a strong PSU, I doubt the CPU is being starved for power, but who knows.

only think I can indeed think about is power. Otherwise, there should be no correlation.

really? a GPU taking up my 600watt psu? Hmmm, I don't know about that, if so, would I be better off overclocked CPU or GPU?

</div>overclocked CPU's and GPU's have no relation to each other what so ever. As for the PSU, it has no idea whether it is sending power to the CPU or the GPU, when it can't supply enough power the GPU will artifact or the CPU will crash depending on which runs out of power first.
