    Need help please. Question about CPU Overclock and drivers

    After overclocking I'm planning on wiping the system and installing a fresh copy of Windows 10. Im planning to overclock with the drivers/updates Windows 10 installs. Once that OC is stable, I'm going to install a fresh copy of windows 10. After that I'm planning on getting the manufacturer's drivers and installing those. My question is- Will that invalidate my overclock in anyway because of possible newer drivers?

    I wouldn't expect any impact on stability. Different drivers could impact your bench scores but generally shouldn't cause a stable overclock to become unstable.
