Isn't there a table showing how far to push them?
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Yes, there are a few. Some have made decent tests on 5850's and 5870's to find the sweet spot for lower energy usage while not compromising hashrate.
For 5870 I remember 1000/210 and 950/210 as one sweet spot for some. Basically make adjustments on either the core or memory until you get invalids then back off, modify the other until same, back off slightly. This would be the maximum you can OC/UC. Also, OC/UC depends a lot on which OS you are running, how that will be achieved.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

The OS you're running also affects the OC on the GPU

As with sex, mining is not done "best" at the fastest speed.
Woman alert.

Oh god my sides.

But he's right, pushing your GPU to the maximum possible before everything BSoDs or just crashes is NOT an effective way to mine. It's better to keep it stable. Uptime is key

Stamina is everything she always said.
