Using LPCxepresso 1114 stick with Code Red V5.

Writing in assembly language.

After reading all the manuals and searching this forum I have 2 questions.

From the manual:
The CT32B0/1 are configured using the following registers:
1. Pins: The CT32B0/1 pins must be configured in the IOCONFIG register block
(Section 7.4).
2. Power and peripheral clock: In the SYSAHBCLKCTRL register, set bit 9 and bit 10

RE> 1:
*must* I configure pins if I just want to poll the timer?
Simply writing those two bits seems dangerous. Won't that simply disable everything else and "brick my stick"?
