Is Overclocking My Laptop GTX 1050 Like This Safe?

Alright, so I have been using this ASUS FX553VD for about 4 months or so now. Here are the specifications of the laptop:

CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ
GPU: GTX 1050 4GB GDDR5
RAM: 8GB 2400mhz (single channel)
HDD: 1TB 7200RPM
Monitor: 1920x1080 LED Panel (I'm not sure which panel it has)

Alright, back to the story. My main goal in overclocking the GTX 1050 is to improve probably 15-20% FPS in most games I play. I play GTA V, World of Tanks, Batman Arkham Night, Metro Last light Redux, Rainbow SIx Seige and Dirt Rally the most. I'm finding it quite hard to run GTA V on Ultra High Settings, with the FXAA turned on, but MSAA and NVIDIA TXAA off. I can achieve an average of around 45fps. My temperature when it's not overclocked is around 72-75 degrees celcius. But when I overclock the GPU, it jumps up to 75-80 degrees. My room temp is around 20-25 degrees celcius at most. *It's winter here in Vietnam. But will overclocking my GTX 1050 this much would damage it?

GPU Clock Offset: +175MHz
Memory Clock Offset: +575MHz

I'm using EVGA Precision XOC.

  1. well for the CPU you cant overclock it on the Laptop and as for the GPU i am not sure as you can overclock but still i recommend you to dont do the overclocking on the laptop because of the heat issues that 75-80 you are seeing are high tempratures result in heating other components of your laptop too

  2. I have read from many sources that those temperatures for laptops are actually fine. They say that laptops are designed to withstand the high temperature from the CPU and GPU.

  3. Do laptops are not built for over clocking anything in it.

  4. In theory, my GTX 1050 has the boost 3.0 thing. So, it technically already runs at higher clock speeds than what it was advertised as
