Default Folding a la GTX 285

Well guys, I am finally folding with this GTX 285 and I have found a happy medium for performance per watt. Basically, the core is underclocked to 650Mhz and the Shaders to 1740Mhz. I was able to take the shaders all the way up to 1910Mhz for the 384pt WU which resulted in a stunning 9712 PPD but for some reason that overclock was not stable for the 511pt WUs.

This thing is a monster when it comes to folding and it is very efficient. I am drawing ~ 283W with the settings below.

Anyways, here are the final results with a SINGLE CARD for both a SMALL and LARGE WU. Pictures scaled accordingly for smaller screens:
