The NATHAN_KIDc22 series consumes 100% of a CPU core. I'm wondering if I can increase the series performance by OC-ing my CPU; I have a Dell XPS 435 with an i7 at 2.67 GHz. Wondering, but no idea how to do that!!

Also, I just replaced my trusty GTX 460 with an ASUS GTX 660 of the non-"OC" variety. Any recommendations on how I might ramp up its GPUGrid performance?

Thanks, Tom

Unless something has changed Dell pretty much locks down their BIOS. I doubt you'll be able to overclock your CPU.

CPU OC won't help here (which is good for you :)
Regarding the GPU OC: at 1.175 V (maximum turbo) you should be able to reach around 1.20 GHz GPU clock, give or take a few 10 MHz depending on your chip and cooling. As always: be sure it'S running stable, then increase clocks in small step and test for errors. Unfortunately I can't anem the perfect test utility for GP-GPU.
