that's just my own experience.
Yeah, if I don't find a good, stable setting by the end of this week, I'm probably going to stick with the setting that kept me stable for 6 and 1/2 hours. I doubt I'll experience any problems during my regular usage, and if it should happen to somehow cause damage to any of my components, then that'll just give me a reason to go out and buy a new upgrade
