I'm trying to keep my card from causing China Syndrome, it's 92°F here now.

Just checking I'm currently getting 6480PPD on my gtx260, is this about right?

What tools/programs should I use to overclock it and what should I overclock to make it a better folder. Any ideas of overclocking numbers and folding numbers I could/should be hitting with this card?

edit: Ok refreshed and now I'm getting 7438 PPD

Evga Precision is what I'd recommend. OC the Shaders only (unlink from the Core clock), and see how high you can get it.

Depends on the WU but mine range from about 6500-8500. One WU shows up in benchmarks as 10.2k but I think that maybe a fluke because I've never actually seen them working that fast.

edit- I use MSI Afterburner for setting cards stuffs.
