No, I'm looking to do the opposite: underclock. How low am I able to go? Will the minimum settings be safe?
Oh I am sorry, my brain likes to skip certain words to make things more fun.
Under-clocking you can go as low as you like. To keep your performance decent, just drop 5% at a time, each time. You will find dropping your gpu
and cpu clocks will see the most dramatic temperature changes, so the memory and shader speeds not so much.
If you have a game in mind to play which currently runs at a solid 60 frames, you can drop your gpu clock down till that starts to suffer, go up just
a little so its solid 60 again and thats going to be your comfortable setting. However if you are playing something that runs erratically at say 43
fps, then its simply up to you to adjust it using your judgement.
If you are playing a game that requires barely any CPU but lots of GPU, you may benefit more from dropping the cpu instead of the gpu and reduce the
heat that way, if they share the same heatpipe that is.
