In order to reduce my GPU's temperature I've decided to use 50Hz refresh rate on a 60Hz refresh rate monitor.
The temp went down but could this cause problems in the long run?

PS: Tested on Euro Truck Simulator 2, temp went down by 5 °C .

Thx already for any input

Nope, I never heard or read of such issues happening with such a slight reduction in refresh rate.

may limit some games to 50fps but i really don't get what you mean by "problems".

you may be better off just slightly limiting the power % used and keeping the 60Hz refresh rate.
By problems I mean something monitor related because of my using a different refresh rate from the natural one.

By reducing power usage, do you mean overclocking settings on Afterburner?
