I haven't mined DOGE for a couple of weeks, pools I was using are closed now.
I'm at dogehouse... I thought I saw some post several weeks ago about its being hacked, but someone on IRC today told me to go there, and then a second opinion on poolerama. I am doing ok at dogehouse.. not sure whats "good" but I been mining through it at about 800 kh (as shown in cgminer), and on there it shows on avg
Pool hash: 9.5 GH
Net rate: 58GH
My rate: 600+
In a few hours, so far got over 1300... is that good or bad? I am totally ignorant on whats the significances there.

im actually wondering if setting up with 120s blowing down would help, considering the card is an MSI cyclone.
the windforce cooler on my 270 is overkill as it gets. its been at full load for hours and hasnt broken 68C at 50% fan
Unless every db matters, no such thing as overkill on fans when u can just turn it down! Thats my philosophy anyways....
I didnt specialize in aero, but was forced to take a couple of fluid dynamic classes (not my favs), combined with I guess some common sense, my basic principle is to always to visualize smooth airflow from point A, through B, out C. Also, I always want the exhaust fans (closed, not open air system) blowing ("pulling") more air out than whats being blown in... any turbulence inside the system area just kills the whole objective. In an open air system, exhaust is not as important since the whole airspace is exhaust... then ambient temp much more important. If you have extra fans, use more to blow in, not pull.
Unfortunately, all these cards that have the fans blowing directly/perpindicularly into the sink located parallel to the board sucks (literally) for any external fans to "help" efficiently. What I did with my 2xGigabyte 270's was to do a feel test (for lack of tracer smoke and an area to perform), putting my ever so sensitive hands around every area surrounding my setup, and feeling for the strongest airflow out. My 2 cards right now are about 2 inches apart, and the strongest exit was actually straight away from the DVI/HDMI-input ends... i.e., if it were inside a case, right towards the front of the case, which is what its doing in my main/work/pleasure rig where I also put in 2x270's, which sucks since the case flow is opposite (someone didnt think hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee).
So for my mining only rig (open air)
Card-0 is in the middle of the board, fan "blowing towards" the middle of the board & CPU, Card-1 is on edge of board, fan "blowing towards" Card-0
Ambient: ~20C (Card-0 / Card-1) (Default fan speeds = 50%)
Using ONE External fan: CM 120mm 2000 RPM 19 dBA 69.69 CFM
73 / 70 [ No external fans ] - Makes sense because 1 is blowing "hotter than 20C" air towards 2 no matter how slight
70 / 71 [ Blowing in from top] - Not worth the effort here
69 / 71 [ Pulling from the front ] - Not much here, pulling sucks unless you have help, unless its a closed area system
68 / 72 [ Blowing in from the front ] - Numbers illustrate the turbulence created
69 / 68 [ Pulling from the top ] - Not bad, but not great
71 / 63 [ Blowing in from blowing into 1's fans, "helping it" ] - Logical... aids more CFM to 1, but shouldnt really help 0 much
65 / 68 [ Blowing in from back ] - What I have going on
Forgive me if this is remedial info, but I hope it helps at least one other person here.
