You won't hurt anything, but the computer might not be stable.

Let me ask this. What purpose would undervolting the CPU serve?

i want to cool down my cpu a bit. i had my stock cooler before and my temp was 58-61C with prime95 then i switch to hyper 212 evo, got 46C max with prime95. is that a good temp using athlon II X3 455 @ 3.3GHz? my CPU offset voltage is 1.475v and Vcore is 1.464v in the BIOS. many thanks sir!

Those are excellent temps. No need to undervolt.
