Which of those should I tinker?
If it is power limit then it reduces speed/voltage and you can see it in afterburner or some other monitor. Easy way to reproduce would be choking card with reducing 5-th (pcie power) to 30/55/60 or set 8-th (total power) to 100/110/120 and then running heaven... should be nice and power limited
Furmark etc. should be power limited with default power settings too, if not, then you are very far from power limits in games.
But power-related voltage or power supply problems? No way to know for sure except hooking some equipment to card and monitor voltage while in operation etc...
For gaming would change nothing if not limited (except 5-th to 75).
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Told before what settings i'm running etc, had almost all at 300 some time, except for 90W ones (raised to 100 for testing etc) and pci-e... Many probably running all of them 600, 900 or so, and some with disabled or halved power limiting... That was the easiest way for me because soldering iron is my friend, but i like stuff like power monitoring and limiting too, so i chose hard (learning) way... No signs having cards failing at 1,212V during my searches. 1&3 25/280/280, 5-th 30/80/100, 8&9 100/300/300 if you want to be very sure about eliminating even slight throttle in games probably, given that you clock higher... But i would leave afterburner logging and play most demanding game you have first and then see if you even have any problems with them... if clockspeed is flat at highest (like a picture i showed earlier) then if you really still want to add something, then +10 to +20 to each default mentioned (8-th from 100/250/280 to 100/260/280 etc.), otherwise would leave them as they are for safety reasons.
