I'm running a GTX 780 ti with +200MHz GPU Clock and +350MHz memory clock via EVGA PrecisionX, without editing the voltages. Is there any way to know if this is safe, or I am reducing the lifespan of my card? Temps are just fine, I never saw them go above 80C

play games, if no artifacting, then it's safe.

So as long as I don't notice anything and the temps aren't high it means I'm not harming my GPU?

That's tricky....

Memory can overheat and be damage, and they dont have a temp sensor.
But it doesn't sound like your going to excessive with your overclock. Usually when I'm overclocking, I look up online how high people have been getting on the stock cooler.

200MHz on the GPU is a lot. You should test for stability.

Any recommendations on how to do that? I've ran 3DMark, Furmark and also played some games, and so far no problems appeared.
