Running a power amp to drive my fronts, do I need to tell the AVR?

Hi all,

Pretty simple. I have a Marantz NR1607 and use the front pre outs to an Emotiva 2ch amp. I’ve heard people say how much cooler their AVR runs once they use a power amp. I still use the NR1607 to drive the rear surrounds, do I need to do anything to tell the AVR not to drive the front L/R? Or the fact that nothing gets drawn means the internal amps do nothing for the L/R channels?

Thanks
