Cool, so not a great deal of power:P

Our powerbill is expensive anyway... Parent don't mind though :P it's our lifestyle; but I'm paying the extra power that the mining is using. Probs in the region of $2-3 per day.

My HD5850 at 900mhz core puts out 326Mhash/s. You seem to be getting a lot more?
I'm using:
phoenix.exe -k phatk DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=7

Also, what pools is everyone using? Wondering if i can get more changing to a different pool (currently on slush)

What language did you write your pool software in?

I used Mozart/Oz: http://www.mozart-oz.org/

My AGGRESSION=12 ~ 355MHhash/s.

I've been pool hoping like mad for the past 6 days and I settled with btcmine.com. Speed doesn't change if I switch pools.

Try the aggression at 13.. At a 900Mhz Core, 300Mem and 1092 (stock I think...)V. Done via Trixx.
I get ~356 :P

God Damnit too.. Ive been running it at 352 for the last week! Missing out on an extra 3Mhash/s!

Also, I think that the image insert in this forum is crap. I have to link a small image to the big one...?

vfxguynz: ....


I don't know if its worth it for me to go aggression=13. My desktop becomes super laggy but of course I get another 3 Mhash/s.

72c Frown...still safe though.

My temps...Speed goes down by like 5-10MHash/s when I open more windows. Still waiting for my other 2 cards Cry


Edit: Pic too big...

Man, I want a 5970! 4 GPUS in one! What's the hash rate of each again? (EDIT: 363 Mhash/s on the pic, duh! Thats ~1400 MHash/s!) I need one, so bad! Trademe?

Yeah, aggression 13 makes my server laggy, but Its dedicated for mining at the minute. I don't use it for anything else.

Im currently coding a command line over clocking tool using the ATI SDK... I saw this (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9982.0) and wished I had it... Would be so handy, but I'm stingy and not paying for something I can make lol. (I am assuming my C++ skills are as good as this time last year, and the SDK lets you down clock the memory :P)

It's actually 380+ each (http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/5434/unled2ej.jpg), but since there's extra windows open it slows it down. Downclocked it recently 880 -> 840. Saved liked 120w Money mouth and only lost 10ish MHash/s, weird.

There's one in trademe for $680.
Remember this, their VRM runs super hot once you past 880 core when using furmark and bitcoin. It will reach 125+c = epic throttleness just to save the card. So be very careful with them. Gaming is all good got mine OC at 980Mhz and stock mem at 1.25v when I game.

That tool looks it was from the linux Fglrx commands when you want to do settings with ATI/AMD cards.

Damn, I shouldnt'a bought the two HD5850's I have then.. Should have bought that off of trademe. Oh well. I dont have a spare 600+$ to spend on a gfx card :P. Plus I only have a 550watt power supply in my pc, so I would have to get another one :/

How long until the bitcoin network becomes self aware?

Actually this is a really interesting system, certainly no worse than how reserve banks around the world make money.

How many bitcoins for a membership? You'd have to change this everyday as the fluctuations in price are insane!

After waiting for a while, I sold 25 BTC yesterday when the rate was 9.35.

Now it's at 10.6! That's about a $40use difference! I'm kicking myself haha.

Payed back for one of the cards I bought. Will be buying another soon. It's addictive!

Am fricking doing the same thing right now, could have gotten over NZD30k in just two months if I hold my April bitcoins and traded today LoL.

Anyways currently from now on it's just profit for me since I have free electricity till mid December and also already reached my payback period like last month, but I'll keep on mining.

Currently making 7-7.3BTC a day for the next 4 days and then increase difficulty again which mostly like be 5.6BTC. I might feel greedy and get 3 HD6990, ST1500, 890FXA-GD70 and cheap CPU and ram for the LoLs end of this month Tongue out

I am almost crying now....

24 Hours, and it's gone from 9.3 to $14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thats a ~$100 USD difference. So annoyed. Anyway, going to get another card tomoz using the money I made.

If the rate keeps going up like this, I dont really care too much about the difficulty. 1 more card, Ill be running at 1050MHash, then I'll end up getting another card + new PSU next... for a GT of 1400MHash/s (in about ~2 weeks, I estimate difficulty around the 600-700k mark. Thats still 2BTC a day, and hopfully exchange rate will go up more :))

LoL I hadn't notice its $14, I only check at end of the month...I guess you can say the difficulty and selling/buying price have a correlation right now, so if this continues people will continue mining and growing till a drop in price.
