There's a perfect margin without taking off OCP. As has been said there are no overclocking benefits or FPS increases when OCP is turned off. Just another 50w your card has to handle on just 4 VRMs.
And that's not quite the same thing. The 997 911 GT3 is MADE for track use, that's how it's designed.
A 570 is not DESIGNED to be used with OCP off.
Now if you use my car for example which is a POS Chevy Cobalt LS with a few mods and I take that to the track obviously something will fail eventually because it was not designed for racing. But if I had an SS that would be a different story. The 580 being the SS in this anecdote as it was designed to take a bit more abuse by adding 50% more VRMs.
