I overclocked mine. It died. Then they fixed it for me. :D

It doesn't seem to be specifically prohibited, unless overclocking is an "unauthorized modification". Then again, they bundle the card with their OC Guru software, so I'm guessing they expect you to overclock if they give you the software to do it.
