Vega 64 Powerlimit Question

Hello,

I have MSI Vega 64 (reference), when i change powerlimit to -50% I get around same fps, but card stays way more quiet and cool, around 60 degrees while gaming and fans at 1600rpm. Otherwise it is 2400rpm and 85 degrees.

Everyone recommend undervolting + 50% PL to the Vega, but then card is at 85 degrees and drawing a lot more power. If I just use the card at -50% PL will it have any drawbacks or can it damage the card in long term?

Way quieter and cooler card seems like a better option than 5-10 more fps depending on the game, or am I wrong? Should i undervolt and increase the PL or just decrease the PL? Thanks in advance.
