Getting my new PC . For the GPU, I ordered an MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr 2G ver. (not the reference ver.) .
It is factory overclocked. This GPU has really good reviews, 5 stars ! Also read lots of good reviews on overclocking it. I just have a few questions. I'm totally new to GPU overclocking.

I'm just wondering if it's safe to just use other people's settings? LIke in this post:

^ Can I just copy and set these same settings for mine? Or I'll have to work my way up?
Also, do each graphic cards (that are same model) differ from their overclocking abilities,just like in CPUs?
Does the motherboard have a big effect on the GPU's overclocking capabilities?
And might it cause some major damage if I maybe make a mistake (like using too much voltage etc) using MSI Afterburner? Or is it a safe program?

Thank you :D 

As you can see, many of the overclocking for this GPu came out really really well.:

Hi,

GPU's are just like CPU's in that they have differing levels of overclocking ability, so your GTX760 may overclock much better or much worse (or somewhere inbetween) compared to someone else's GTX 760.

Using someone else's results may give you a bases to start your overclock but their settings may not be optimal for your card or may not work at all. It's a bit of trial and error.

The motherboard has very little effect (if any) on GPU overclocking, Good cooling and clean power matter much more.

MSI afterburner usually sets a fairly safe voltage limit but I would still recommend having a search online for other people's experience and what is generally considered safe.
