I don't remember now, I have done it more than 1 year ago.
There could be two reasons to do the break-in:
1. You are scared about IR, and you are a gamer. In that case, and taking in the consideration that these new models have less IR than my old PG, I think that about 40-45 hours (in total) of a white wash breaking-in could be enough before start gaming. But I suggest to use the break-in settings during normal watching/gaming until the display has about 100 hours or so, and use the Orbiter option. I would always use the Orbiter option during gaming, not only during the first 100 hours.
2. You will get the display professional calibrated, or you will calibrate it by yourself with a meter, and your idea is to share (later) your settings with other people on the forum. In this case, if you want to be really picky and precise, I suggest to do the white wash break-in for about 90-100 hours, then calibrate the display for the first time with the meter, post the complete settings and warn people to do the break in that way (white wash option and using the other settings) and for the same numbers of hours you have done it. Later, when the display will have about 250 hours or more, you can calibrate it again and post the "final" settings.
There could be other considerations/situations... those are 2 examples.
