  2. I can't overclock my GPU without Afterburner, and just as important, I run a custom fan profile for gaming so I have to have that on to prevent thermal throttling. I turn AB off when I'm not doing anything with the GPU which includes not only gaming but video rendering. If I'm not gaming or rendering, I don't even turn AB on. My fans don't even spool up until the GPU hits a certain load/temp, which in general use like office apps and surfing doesn't happen. I'm cautious about longevity of my GPU cooling fans. If I don't need them on, I don't want them on.
