100% load 24/7 for GPU health

So recently I've been getting back into the zSilver rewards from razer, and saw that they have a new 'mining' software softminer. I was wondering if the GPU at 100% (Sapphire LE RX 580 8gb) with temps around 76C healthy for my gpu. I plan to do this for around 6 hours a day, is this bad for longevity?

UFD tech did a video on this

short answer is no, itll be fine, the only thing that itll hurt is the fans (which you can just replace but itll be an ass to)

Don't see that being an issue. Typical use. Done that same thing for 5 years or so on the same pair of cards.

Better undervolt the card first.

Technically speaking it should be just fine, 76C is not even hot enough to cause issues. It all comes down to luck of the draw I guess, no one really knows how much running a GPU at 100% for a few hours can do over a long period of time. You have to keep in mind that electron migration, which is what usually ends up killing electronics, can be sped up with heat, it might survive years at full load or it may survive days depending on the quality of the GPU die you ended up receiving.
