    You should not have to worry about any activation issues, you are only swapping a CPU, not a motherboard.

    Make sure you have the latest Bios, and just set your Bios to Defaults before you do the swap.

    In fact, make a profile of what you have now and save it in the Bios.
    Cliff, what AddRam advised you is correct. Set defaults before and after the swap. If you have the profile saved in bios, just load it after. A lot of things can change with a new chip.

    • So set defaults
    • then reboot
    • shutdown,
    • swap chip
    • load non-overclock BIOS settings
    • check in windows
    • then start OCing the hell out of it

    Pretty much yes. I would run it and test it at stock first to make sure everything is OK and get some base numbers, then start overclocking.
