post #491 of 22321
ok...so what the heck...I have the wallet software, have the AMD driver, have GUIminer, looking at pools, I'm totally confused...

edit... I think it's working...

also...might consider reducing the OC on this card...it's showing over 600mhash/s, but hitting 90C on the VRM...safe? FRIGGIN LOUD.

I am using abcpool; it pays per share and there is not a penalty for dropping off.  Oh, they also pay for a stale share.  If this is a dedicated miner then you should consider somewhere else.  I game on my machine, so I stop and start alot.

Yeah, pps is good for on and off mining...I'd reccomend dgc.scryptmining.com and coinotron.com for DGC and LTC pps mining.

I joined wemineltc, just to try it out, seems to be much more taxing to mine vs gaming. Got some artifacts at my gaming OC. Right now I brought the core to 1100mhz, kept ram at stock, still seeing random artifacts on screen...

Undervolt to 1.15v or 1.1v, do 1700mhz mem and 900-1000mhz core. Experiment with core speed to find the sweetspot.
Adding core speed alone won't work.

What mining program are you using? settings?

Cheap 7970 here.
Is it worth returning my 7950s and getting three of these instead? Would be the same price I paid anyway.
Is the added power usage worth the additional speed?

Unless you happen to want them for gaming and benching, no...Mining performance won't be MUCH better and it can even be worse without a lot of tuning.
You had 660kh/s using guiminer, right? Don't touch that setup, it's VERY good.
I'm getting 600kh/s with my 7970, but I'm limited by my system memory.

Correct.

The only reason I'm a little upset is that it's a higher tier card for equal or less price than I paid. However, now that I'm reading more into it, it seems the power draw on 7970s is significantly higher, even at stock vs. an OCed 7950. 7950s will probably end up costing me less in the long run. I'm happier with my reference cards over that blue PCB anyway.

Anyways, thanks for the reassurance. I think I just needed someone to convince me not to switch, haha.

It's a perfectly good deal for mining and gaming, maybe build a second rig with them. If you undervolt to 1.1v and clock them moderately they should perform fine and not draw as much power as stock.
Selling game codes at Ebay they become REALLY cheap. I've seen lots of these cards doing 700kh/s and up to 750-800kh/s with some luck.

I'll believe that ASICS are coming out for Litecoin when they are actually fully released for Bitcoin.
