It takes about 3 days after enabling climateprediction before it is the only thing running on my PC. SETI and Asteroids locked out. What am I not doing apart from deleting it entirely ? next step.

It is to do with the length of the CPDN tasks and the resource share allocated to each project. BOINC manages this fairly well with projects that have tasks lasting only one day or less. With tasks that can on some systems last weeks if not months it struggles to do so. If left long enough each project will get their correct share still but we are talking weeks or months for this to happen.

The other alternative which some do is to micromanage things by suspending some tasks to allow others to run.

I don't worry too much as I only run non CPDN tasks when I can't get CPDN work.
