reinstalling windows on a overclock CPU

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

Pretty much I need to reinstall windows 8.1 because of a glitch in the system. 

I bought my alienware Aurora R4 with a Overclock   6 core i7-4960X which is clock to 4.3ghz

It is my fist time resintalling windows on a computer thats overclock and i have no experience or understand on overclocking. Will i lose the over clock setting once my windows is reinstalled? or will everything remain as it was ?

The overclock settings are set in the BIOS so they will not change if you reinstall windows.

You can check if the system is still overclock with the help of this article.

PS: if you are not able to download the INTEL Turbo Boost Monitor you can use a third party website like majorgeeks
