Are you seriously saying you should make sure your parts should handle out of spec usage? How the **** would you even predict that. You shouldn't have to worry about a card pulling more wattage the it's suppose to.
I start to think many AMD fans just guess into the blue for maximum damage control.
They all came from denying the failure at all to refuse there was a statement from AMD to now say everything is fine but the MoBos are at fault. Just when I though the story couldn't get any more ridiculous, a new low comes. In some forums the first jokers even say the stuff is already fixed becaus AMD's wonderdriver will fix everything. How guilable and fanatic can those guys be?

Don't come like that! Stop with this embarrasment! To handle "out-of-spec" hardware is not the issue of the rest of the hardware but the component which harms the spec.
The RX480 will get a downgrade / crippling via software and maybe just barely stay in specification. That is what will be happening.
