Regularly Adjusting Of Voltage, safe?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have a simple question. Is it safe to regularly jump between the voltage level from low to high profile wise ( MSI Afterburner ) or in that matter downclock/overclock regularly? Thank's.

Not really. Your cpu does it all the time.

The only danger is increasing the voltage in the first place - switching between them, in itself, isn't really a problem.

It's perfectly safe. It is a power saving feature on the gpu, and doesn't effect it's longevity.
