I've red somewhere that "overclocking reduce life of your PC" is that true?
I posted a pic. down \here ,please tell me is this config dangerous?
There is no 'safe' clock, its down to trial and error.
Because i don't know the stock speed of the card in question, i would say only do maybe 10mhz bump just to make sure you don't fry the card.
And yes overclocking does reduce pc life-span as you are pushing hardware past its rated factory set speed. meaning its going to get hotter and do more things than it is meant to.
Go ahead and OC, do it like i said, 5 - 10 mhz bumps and
MAKE SURE TO STRESS TEST THE CARD EACH BOOT UNTILL YOU ARE CERTAIN IT IS STABLE.
Sorry to use caps, but that is one thing to always remember.
If its starts crashing, lower the clock.
If you need anymore help, there are tutorials on this forum and all over the web to help.
Post back with you findings
