Is OCCT Safe

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a G1 GTX 970 and I have heard a lot of good things about OCCT because of Its error checking feature but I've heard it can be dangerous 

 

Is This True

 

Thanks

It's only dangerous if you overvolt it and let it burn itself to death.

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

I don't plan on adjusting voltage at all anyway(Just Power Limit) so would be a safe program to use?

Should be no problem.  However, when I was doing my OC for my GPU, I played around a bit with OCCT.  It has a built in error-checker for artifacts.  However, the test is supposed to stop when an error is found, but when I do get errors it just continues on so I'm not sure what's up with that.

What temps are ok In OCCT 

 

I run with shader complexity at 3(Not in fullscreen) with Error checking on(an unclocked FPS as well) and I got to 78 Celcius in 5 mins with A G1 GTX 970. Rarely hits 65 While gaming though and averages out at about 62 Celcius

 

Thanks

Don't go above 90c when stress testing.  In gaming it will never touch those temps so you are good.
