    Play the games you normally do. Keep an eye Ofor any artifacts or slowdowns. and keep an eye on the temps.
    If you notice any problems drop it down a bit. But most cards are very resilient these days to overclocks when it comes to permanent damage unless you go crazy and do a big jump with out working in steps.
