First step; REMOVE the overclock and run the client at stock for some time. See if it runs ok then. By some time I don't mean a few hours. I mean a few days to a week. Learn about the client. Observe it. Watch task manager. Find out what it should be doing and what it shouldn't. Get used to it.

I mentioned before that it would be a good idea to let it "settle in" before overclocking.

If you don't want to listen to me, listen to SteveI. He said the same and he's forgotten more than I know about this client.

And if you don't want to listen to Steve, listen to this guy:

He's one of the site moderators on the folding-community forum. I *think* he prolly knows his stuff.

Relax and go slowly. Don't rush it, it has too many quirks to do that. I waited for a month before I began to overclock. My farm is now overclocked only 10% and I know it should do at least 15-20%, maybe more. But it will stay like this for another month before I begin to push it further.

I deal with at least one or two random problems daily on my boxen. The same kinds of things; EOE's, I/O errors, hung clients, network problems, etc etc. I'm still trying to find out what the "triggers" are for these problems. Some I have learned, some I haven't. But one thing I don't want to do is introduce an entirely new set of problems by overdoing the OC. Better to learn what I can first, then experiment.
