    Question Does benchmarking and burn test damage the graphic card?

    I bought a gpu weeks ago, but it had a problem. So I sent it to the service center and they said that they are doing benchmarks, stress testing and burn test using furmark, 3d mark etc. for 2 days. Is it good or does it damage the gpu due to such stress testing?

    Question Will furmark damage my gpu

    I ran Furmark for 30mins and the temp shown never exceeded 50c. However, the some components on the PCB felt extremely hot. Is the GPU temperature shown on Furmark the whole story? Should I worry about temps of the PCB?

    Question High fan RPM lowers fps - GTX 970
