Just depends if you feel you need more or not. The cards are beasts even at stock, maxing out the overclock is more for benchmark scores.
Quite a few guys overclock with the available voltage at first, & leave the overvolting until later when things become more demanding & the FPS isn't quite there, or when they start looking at upgrading the cards & push the current ones harder until the upgrade. Or for the bench scores, the extra voltage doesn't have to be used 24/7.
