The GPU should never exceed 110W since that's it's TDP.
Well GTX 970 has TDP of 145W and it goes way way over!
So basically you are saying that GTX 970 and GTX 1070 should never use over 110W.
RX 480 8GB with downvolts will use less then 120W.
In this case XFX RX 480W peaks at 125W stock.
XFX 480 8GB claims 120W TDP
