Default Pushing last work unit out before deadline

Hey Guys, I have a GPU work unit that is going to be about 5 minutes late making the deadline. Is there anything I can do to push it through quicker (ie, overclock the card). Thanks

I think the time you'd take overclocking it would negate any speed increase, especially if it restarts because the OC is unstable.

You can give your shaders a small bump (fermi shaders are locked to the core speed). Try not to push the shaders too hard though or you will spoil the WU.

ATI card, not Nvidia. I was only planning on overclocking the GPU.

Looks like it made it through in time! I have a feeling that once the SMP client finished it's last unit there were more resources freed up for the GPU client to speed up a little.
