I would fold at stock for a day or two, just to get a feel for how many PPD your card gets, temps while folding, etc. We also need to know if your rig is 'folding stable'. Folding is ver stressful on a system, so establishing a base 'stability' is important. Then you can look at OCing those shaders.

I use Evga precision to adjust my GPU fans. My target temps are 75C and lower. Right now I'm at about 72C with the fans on my GTX's at 80%.

I just downloaded it, installed it, and saw that with the temp of 65 the fan was on auto at 40%. I put it to 80% and it was rather loud, maybe i'll play with it till i get a volume db that i like

You have an Evga card so the precision tool hertz mentioned is good if the temps are too high for your liking. I run my fans at 80% using it.

Using the EVGA precision tool with the fan at 60% temperatures are floating down around 55C with otherwise stock settings for the GPU and GPU folding. I take it its not that hard to OC this GPU up a bit more to benefit in games and folding as well

Be careful, the temps can swing depending which WU is being folded. The 511s and the 1888s are notorious for high temps.

My advice is to wait a couple of days, and pay close attention to the temps on the 511s (it is customary around here to place a "" in front of the 511, as we hate them so much. Long-time HWC folder LCB001 started this tradition. I rather think the 511s are an opportunity to really test your rig. That way, the 511s are a somewhat welcome sight. Otherwise, how else would you be able to use the smiley without the 511s hanging around. We would be sitting around, thinking like, 'How can I use the smiley.' 'I can't think of one way to use the thing'. But thanks to the 511s, we have ample opportunity to use the smiley.)

Go through a few 511s first, then try some OCing.

To quote the great Mr. Gump, well kind of, "Folding is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get next." That is why I run my fans at 80%. 511s
