It depends. You might find that you can uninstall the old driver in Programs and Features. If it's not in there, then I wouldn't worry about it.

sooo i have my clocks as this. base is 4ghz and turbo 4.2ghz

do you guys think that once i get my cooler that it will be beneficial to keep base at 4ghz and turbo to 4.4 or base at 4.2 and turbo at 4.4? for what i do which is gaming and video editing, would it be good to do or just create more heat and do nothing? the most CPU intensive games i have are BF3 and FC 3. thats really it.

if its not beneficial then im just going to leave it what its at and just adjust the voltage and get it as low as possible.

Core Temp shows the temp of each core, the control center does not, that`s why there`s a difference.

core temp was giving me ALL wrong readings. and adding 20 to it dident match up eaither..... in MSI, im keepng it below 60C playing BF3 it never went above 57C
