If you're using the app_info file you'd need to use one with code for CPU projects as well in order to use those other cores fully.
It would mean finishing your current WU, closing boinc, removing the app_info file and then restarting the install steps.

The question is, with the working time(8 hours) is 3,9k per day already effectively use my cpu power or can it be squeezed for more without overclocking it further?
Good to see you got it all going. You can set all the parameters for computer use in the Advanced view > Tools > Computing Preferences > Processor Usage. BOINC will always make the most of the settings you select so there's no real trick to squeeze more out of it. Overclocking the CPU speed is the best way to increase the returns as long as it's stable. WCG rewards consistency
