Is GPU undervolting & underclocking harmful?
My PSU is rated at 12V 450W whereas AMD recommends at least a 500W PSU to run the RX580.
I don't have the money to afford both the GPU and the PSU for the time being and since the GPU is on sale right now (Gigabyte RX580 8GB @ $200); I don t want to pass this opportunity either.
I asked the shopkeeper about this and he said that this GPU will run fine if I undervolt and underclock it and bring it down to RX570 level as both these GPUs have the same chip and processor.
Although I suspect he s just saying it just to unload the GPU on me!
So what do you think? Is undervolting safe? Will it void my warranty? I m sorry if I sound paranoid but I don t want to burn my brand-new GPU!
