Is this true? More about : overclocking bad cooling system Best solution saint19 a b U Graphics card a c 266 K Overclocking September 6, 2010 5:07:24 PM Hi XyzLegend. That's not true. The GPU OC does't have anything to do with the CPU OC or cooling. If u have good temps OC ur GPU or CPU or both CPU and GPU u should not be worried.
