    What's afterburning? Do you mean overclocking? There's a video card overclocking tool called Afterburner from MSI, but it's a name for a utility that does in fact overclock the graphics card.

    There is NO safe overclock; all overclocking involves some degree of risk. That is why it voids the warranty of whatever you are overclocking.

    The very first rule of overclocking is do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace.

    Do not misunderstand; I overclock almost everything and do not have problems however if a part should fail, there is no one to blame other than me.

    I am just emphasizing that there is no safe overclock. If you want to be sure parts last, then do not overclock.
