Question Running at 100% load at minimum clock speed


Apr 8, 2016
Hey folks. Struggling to get a search match on this specific concern. I have some games that I like to keep open in the background. Some release the GPU, some don't. If anyone knows how to force any software to release a GPU that would be awesome advice, but my question is, would there be any harm done by leaving a GPU clocked to minimum, so that it uses low watts and runs cool, but at 100% load of course because it's barely able to render the game? Obviously running games or mining crypto at 100% load 24/7 is the way to burn a card out as quickly as possible, but wondering if 100% at low clock is a completely different story since it's cool and simply can't manage the load.
