I don't overclock anything except the shaders. Pushing the core clock and the memory yields very little in the way of folding gains, and delivers a bunch of heat.

Your shaders are the key to folding speed. My GTs are stock at 1625. You should be able to get to 1750 comfortably and with some work, to 1850 or more. This will give you the most gain in folding speed with not much extra heat.

Here's a screenshot of my main rig running two 9600GTs at 1955 shaders:

Is the client set up already? Did it go OK?
