no one can guarantee you safety with any overclocking. You can try it and if you thi k the benefits aren't worth the u inherit risk, you can throw it back to default settings.
there have been people who have had overclocked settings forover a year without any issues and that's all we really know
That is a good sign, but I still think that we have an idea of why ocing a CPU is relatively safe especially if voltage and temps are in check, and the same applies to GPU and ram.
But it just seems like no one really understands (from what I've read so far) why OCing a monitor is safe, or not, nor have I read any real explanation of what is happening when you OC a monitor and why or why not it is not going to affect it in some way.
I'm all for doing cutting edge experimentation and basing it on the best anecdotal evidence, but I also wouldn't mind seeing some information regarding exactly what is happening, why it is safe (according to Nvidia for example) or why it is not (according to other forum posts I've read).
I may try to call Nvidia if I have time to see if they can tell me anything.
I guess I'm being kind of protective because I really like my monitor, but I also find it a bit frustrating that no one actually knows technically what is going on here.
