  4. how good or safe are the built-in protections?

    Perhaps a bit offtopic, but still; how good or safe are the built-in protections? For example if you are diagnosing a problem and repeatedly trip the psu multiple times? Can the protection circuitry...

    You need a pretty capable PSU to torture vega64 with increased power limit (and OCed) with furmark ;) Especially if you have an OCed ocata-core system running prim95 at the same time :D

    You can (only) be sure for stock cable to supports it. You can be reasonably sure of brand name cables to support approx. what they promise, but if they don't sell 100W cables then you are out of...

    You can post a ton of examples I still think this sledgehammer approach is wrong. Other than that, I agree that something should be done, or even better, have been, at the start.

    If you plan to OC 1700 get a better motherboard, even on some x370 boards VRM is relatively poor. Regarding PSU power if you want to OC, 650W should be a minimum.

    Weird. I got shocked a few times (just a tiny bit...) from the primary side of PSU, disconnected from mains, of course, and mostly very crappy units. Didn't realize it was possible to get shocked or...

    You are probably right, but I am sure no one one this forum knows what's in your head, when you are asking questions like that.
