HD5850 how soon can i overclock it? Does it need some sort of mileage? Tags: Graphics Cards Overclocking Performance HD Last response: June 25, 2011 2:28 AM in Overclocking Share sanchaz June 13, 2011 10:34:12 PM 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?
