I have MSI B450m bazooka v2 motherboard and a processor Ryzen 5 2600 , I have an option in BIOS to turn on Game boost/mode it basically increases my CPU clock about more 450 MHz to my base clock which is 3.4 GHz so that will be 3.85 GHz , is that safe or is it harming my cpu slowly? the cpu temp didn't actually increase or if it does ( rarely ) its like 2 C (max temp 66-67C ), some games acquired more fps (about 5-7 ) , it might sound strange but the GPU temp got a little bit higher more 3C ( max temp was 73C and its now 76C) , I am a 3D modeler and use alot of 3D softwares so I want to know also if this gonna help me in 3D softwares or not , I have run test benchmark (userbenchmark software) for my pc before and after turning the game boost , and it was actually kinda impressing , gaming bench jumped from 52% to 60% , Desktop bench jumped from 49% to 59% and Workstation bench jumped from 45% to 54%.
CPU bench jumped from 62.7% to 77.1% , GPU bench jumped from 57.1% to 64.4% and both RAM and Hard drive increased by 10% more bench, so is it safe to keep it that way ? Thanks in advance.

MSI Game Boost overclocks the CPU, compatible GPU and sometimes RAM as well at medium-level or so. To put it shot: it's a lazy way for PC OC.

Though, you need to be careful with any automatic OC since they often feed too much voltage to CPU Vcore. E.g when i enabled my MSI Game Boost for a sort while, it instantly set my i5-6600K Vcore to 1.4V.

For any kind of OC, it's best when you do it manually (CPU and RAM OC only from BIOS and GPU OC from e.g MSI Afterburner).
