So i have a hd 5850, ive had it for about 4 days 2 of those days it was running at full load.

My question is how soon can i overclock?
Will overclocking it now make me have weaker results than from a months time?

Does the card need some sort of mileage before it will achieve its maximum OC performance?

Why was it running at full load for 2 days? OCing the GPU can be done with no break-in time....It is hard to say how long it will last as all hardware is not equal..

I usually wait a month or so to make sure there are no defects from the manufacturer. After that I tend to see what it can do.
