Edit: So quick question, what should I focus my overclock on if I'm looking to increase the performance for folding? Shaders I presume?
Omg, I think I have an idea of what might have happened because this is something my unscrupulous Dad would do (he's normally a good guy, but he does stupid things like this sometimes): I think your card is a Golden Edition with the heatsink that comes with the Twin Frozr II GTX 470. I mean, I think somebody purchased both the Golden Edition and the normal GTX 470 Twin Frozr II, swapped the heatsinks, and then returned the Golden Edition with the GTX 470's regular Twin Frozr II heatsink on it, and they probably also returned it in the GTX 470's box as well. I mean, I bet this is what happened, and I bet that was the plan prior to placing their order.
