Acclimating to LED lighting

Hello everyone,
Just a question about using LED. I am sure answer may be different depending on lighting system.
I have read many say that one needs to slowly ramp up light intensity over a certain period of time.
I have just picked up a 160 Watt Razor and have been using it for two weeks. I have used the 100 % setting in the program. It's on for about three hours or so. I never slowly acclimatized the tank thinking that I used to have 400 watt Radium halide with T5s over it.
So far, no adverse affect. Corals seem to be loving it.
It's been two weeks. I am afraid everything might suddenly go down the drain.
Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank you!

Looks like you are in the clear, if it was too high, you would have noticed some bleaching or color loss. Awesome tank btw !
