Your fine, you dont need to break it in, give her hell!
On my 6100 I'm running a mix of fsb and multi. i'd say once you hit the point of instability up the voltage abit. you should be able to get about 4.6Ghz+ out of that thing stable daily usage.
if your on a good water set up you can get an idea from my settings and tweak from there since you are also on a sabertooth.
