The card won't allow your to do anything to degrade it significantly. Changing frequency doesn't really matter in terms of longevity, load and voltage do.
Even the BIOS has been encrypted so you can't get any massive performance increase unless you have a better bin.
They're made so that any idiot can OC it and not harm it in any way. *sigh*
Fyi the scanner only changes the voltage/clock table, if you want the maximum speed you still have to change it manually or just OC with the slider.
