Look in your home folder for a file named .conkyrc (control + h to show hidden files)
If you run conky in the terminal it will load this file.

If you have no .conkyrc file, running conky in terminal will open
/etc/conky/conky.conf (sample config included with conky)

To test different conky configs you download, just place them all in a folder named conky in your home directory.Name them anything you like.(eg conky1, conky2 etc)
To run a specific config, in the terminal, enter

conky -c ~/conky/name of your config
