I'm afraid that it's the only good choice available to you right now. Threatening to quit does not lead to a good outcome for anyone.
I'm not threatening to quit, these work units have lead to me switching off my GPU client. I could just have done that and left Stanford none the wiser, but I naïvely assumed that feedback would be appreciated. My experience of this forum is quite negative. However dumb a user is, telling him he's doing it wrong just drives him away. Think of the other users who search and end up here looking for a solution, but then read a site admin being dismissive of the problem. They won't bother to post, and that's your loss.
I'm also not sure why you are mentioning overclocking.
