    Default When installing OS, do you overclock or not?

    Just curious if you guys overclock then install the OS? Or should I leave everything on default to install OS, then overclock later?

    The only way I can be 100% sure my OC is stable is to run stability tests like Prime95 and Linx in Windows. I will run Memtest at stock to check basic system stability, then install Windows and test at stock. Then OC and test. If I am sure the OC is stable and I need to do a reinstall I will OC'ed but that is the only time.

    If I had the overclock running for a while and I'm 100% positive that it is stable, then I do sometimes install Windows overlocked. Otherwise always at stock settings.

    This is my view as well.
