I believe you need to enter Options "Coolbits" "1" in your xorg.conf
Nvidia section, then the Overclock option appears in nvidia-settings.

Hm, with 275w to play with you should be fine, HDs don't draw that
much. However I suppose it's possible an old PS can't output it's full
spec (or, you're running out of just one of the rails [12v, 5v, etc]
with plenty on the other rails).
