I can beat that, I somehow broke my PCI slot on my MoBo, so I had to move my PC downstairs, I decided that now that PCI was no issue, I should install my 560ti as the most OP PhysX card and maybe fold on it. I decided that my CPU was probably bottle necking my GPU's, so i decided i wanted to OC it, I went in my Bios and saw that what i thought was an x6 running at stock Volts, was actually an x4 running at 1.475 vcore, WTH, so I put it back to stock volts although it was saying 1.475 was default. so now at a 1.3vcore, i left it at stock and rebooted. it was fine. So i decided to try to unlock and OC to 3.7 as an x6, I did so, and it was stable, which was normal seeing as I've hit 4ghz stable at 1.5 (current vcore was 1.45). It was folding fine on the 680 but i couldn't figure out how to do 2 seperate clients with diffrent passkeys, so i left the 560ti to idle and let it go while running a few torrents. i woke up this morning and saw my 680 temps and literally almost had a heart attack, they were 87c and my processor had gone back to stock, x4 at 1.25 volts. So i shut my pc off and left for school.
on the plus side, I fixed my msi afterburner issue
87C good lord, I wonder what happened there, maybe really low auto stock fan profile or something. I wish you well getting it sorted out, I wouldn't worry about overclocking your CPU much for folding purposes if that's what you meant, nv GPUs don't require much CPU usage. AMD GPUs higher OCs help, but it doesn't make much difference for nv GPUs. I was able to get the same PPD on my i3 stock, as my i7 OCd, when I was folding on my GTX 480s.
If you're talking for gaming, you are probably better off running your CPU x4 at higher clocks than x6 at lower clocks, running it as an x4 will also save on the power/heat it uses/generates. What CPU do you have exactly?
 nvm, it looks like you have a zosma 960T. Yeah, I'd run that thing @ 4.1+ x4 all day, over x6, no need for the extra heat, IMO.
Unless you fold on the CPU, then it would be good to run as x6, and set your smp client to 5 cores, leaving one core for the GPU to fold on.
