Is acpi_enforce_resources=lax safe?

I've read many posts about how booting with this kernel parameter is unsafe, or to be more precise damaging to the hardware. Several times it was mentioned that this was only a maybe (hardware specific) and I never really found a concrete explanation on what it can do to your hardware.

I'm using a Gigabyte Aorus B550m Elite motherboard with 16 GB of HyperX Fury RAM (2 sticks), and the only way (as far as I know) that I can get to control of their RGB on Linux is through OpenRGB, which requires this kernel parameter to detect them. This is why I would want to have this parameter active.

Additionally, I already booted my system with this parameter once, and there wasn't anything that seemed off. So if it's something plain to see I must've missed it or there aren't any issues at all.

Trying to figure this out myself.
