OK so I have a MSI GTX 460 Hawk and in afterburner my max voltage increase is Core: +100 , memory +100 , aux +30

so now question is, is it safe to max out these sliders?

and what is the usual OC for these types of cards?

when you OverClock your GPU, you OC the Core, Memory & Shader clocks.
* Bump up core clock by 30 MHz and memory clock by 50 MHz and shader clock by 50 MHz, and check stability (play games, run videos, use GPU intensive applications) if you are stable (no BSODs, no crashes, no freezes) you're good to go.
* Now you can bump up each of above by (xx MHz) and again you check stability....
* Do this over and over until you are unstable (you crash, get BSODs,.....) that's how you reach the limits of your GPU.
Note 1 : Raise up voltages only when you are unstable.
Note 2 : Don't forget to check temps of your card after each overclock you do.

uhhhhhhhhhhh Im in a big problem now

My card died.

I upped the core voltage to +100 and PLL Voltage to +30 and upped my core to 900 and after running furmark for 10 mins, it just died. no power, no signal nothing, my PC won;t turn on either, but after switching to a diff card everything worked fine, Ill try to send it to MSI anyway I didnt smell burnt smell
