I ordered the Gigabyte Windforce GTX 770 X3 OC and I want it to last up to 5 years. I upgrade around every 5 years or so. Anyways as I understand it the boost 2.0 changes my clock speeds and voltages. I am assuming that the voltages never go TOO high but I could be wrong when it comes to helping my gpu last a long time. Is this something I should be concerned about and if so is there something I can do about it. Is EVGAPercisian (or other fixed voltage software) voltage settings the only way to do it? If I fix the voltages that means it will not go down when system is at idle but I don't really care about that. Also in my research I am wanting to learn more about Boost 2.0. I cant find any detailed info about how the manufacturer determines the (max voltage according to the GPU). I have read that all GPU's are different and that makes Boost 2.0 act different with each GPU. But how does Boost 2.0 know what that particular GPU can handle? I mean does Gigabyte for example have a bunch of tech's test each one personally? Any insight on this matter would be appreciated.
