After that I think the gpu clock is really good and the voltage is not so high. I wanted to know if I can get some problems in the future? or If get normal temps I will have no problems. Im currently having 70-75 °celsius on gpu and 60-65 memory temp and 70 max vrm temp with fans at 100% and ambient temp of 30° degrees celsius.
It was stated by an official MSI rep someone quoted a few pages back that if temps are kept low, like what your card seems to be at, then the degradation will not noticeably affect the card's life. I think he said something along the lines of my opinion I gave a few pages back- if you lower the card's estimated life even by half
, that may bring it from 12 years down to 6, and how many plan on keeping their card for 6 years? So yes, cutting the life in half is an extreme estimate to begin with, especially since you're on the stock voltage, so you're definitely good.
By the way, awesome card! And welcome to the site/club/Green-side
Now over-volt that bad boy and see what it can really
