If I set my GPU fan Speed to 100% all the time will it damage my graphics card.?

So wondering, I downloaded After burner for my r9 290x, should I set it to 100 all the time? or is the 100% fan speed feature only used sometimes when it gets too hot for short time?

  1. Leave it on auto, it does a great job at knowing what speed it should be at :) But no setting it to 100 won't destroy it, it will just be loud and will lower its full lifetime because of wear and tear.

    Perfect thanks, didn't know about the auto feature, piece of shitt was running on 93.C Degree without even running anything on it, by the time I got into my game it would crash.

  4. Yea the Auto Feature on afterburner is horrible. It keeps the fan percentage way too low. Set up a fan curve with afterburner and force it to jump on each period. Its definitely a great way to keep the cards cool. Also running it 100% will not damage your card.
