When you OVERCLOCK using Rivatuner, you have the choice to overclock 2D or 3D clocks. Personally, what I do is ONLY overclock 3D but if you use default overclocking then both 2D and 3D clocks will increase. I personally like having power savings when in 2D and then all the power I want in 3D but what you do is up to you.

I see no need to be running a overclock while not in 3d.
