The issue of course is whether the PSU is actually a quality unit with properly-set OCP!
Pretty hard set in stone, ATX standarts for that. It should not be longer, as in case of a real semiconductor failure, when the peak is past and smoke rises, resistance drops, it was too numb to detect the short, then the traces pop and melt, the PSU will not shut down and keep burning the PCB. What's so proper about it? It is a defensive mechanism not a feature. OCP is set way too high for many PSUs, actually the OPs Fractal PSU is also one of them.
It's not so bad.
This only works if you need more speed at the same wattage. If you wanna lower the wattage you need to lower the maximum clock as well. Usually, lowering it by 200 reduces wattage by 25 to 40 percent.
Depends on SKU. Also all that undervolting Mojo.... in reality all Radeons I've undervolted + underpowered recently were unstable doing it. Yes it works in some games, but it ain't stable. It is silicon lottery. Maybe you have a golden sample, okay... but for most, nope... then again we have full forums, hey my Radeon keeps crashing.
