Default OC New Parts Immediately?

hey i just got my OCZ Platinum Rev 2's today and i'm so excited to overclock them! do i have to wait a few days before overclocking (to let them break in) or can i do it immediately? i definitely don't wanna break 'em by overclocking too soon.

You should be fine to overclock them now, and they'll be covered under warranty anyways, but most components like a bit of a burn in period of a couple of days to heat them up.

haha, ya, i would let them break in a little bit too.

it's just like a car...you don't race it on the first day, you let the engine break in, make sure everything's working alright for a while until you start pushing it.
