Is it okay to drag the slider all the way to the right in msi afterburner for overclocking gpu's? Does it have a big effect on the lifespan of the card?

Dragging the voltage slider to the right did pretty much nothing for me, probably wasn't necessary at the amount of core cock i was increasing for it. Thanks tho

Increasing the power limit slider does nothing if the card doesnt need to pull any more to hit the core clock that you've set.

It wont pull more power if the card doesnt need it.
