Most likely not. If you plan on overclocking, you better become familiar with the BIOS

You can disable items in the CMOS setup that you do not use.

For example, if you don't use the firewire ports or onboard sound you can disable those.

mb, cpu and ram?

may need some changes to get your ram running at rated speeds and timings especially if it was an i7 build with ddr3 1600 or faster.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
