    Depends what hardware you add,I've had it happen when I switched mb's,any major hardware change and it will ask you to re activate,never had it with oc or drivers yet but if it affect major components then I guess it would ask you

    Sometimes this can happen if your overclock is unstable, or if you've had crashes and had to reset the BIOS sometimes enabling or disabling certain BIOS options and ending up with different things enabled than when you first activated can cause this like LAN or Audio settings (Making windows think it's a new motherboard)
