Basically, the system in charge of block updates gets out of sync.

Eg one group stays on block 1, whilst another group starts hashing block 2. It happened to BTC a while back I think.

Yesterday, the Bitcoin network experienced one of the most serious hiccups that we have seen in the past four years. Starting from block 225430, the blockchain literally split into two, with one half of the network adding blocks to one version of the chain, and the other half adding to the other. For the next six hours, there were effectively two Bitcoin networks operating at the same time, each with its own version of the transaction history. The split lasted for 24 blocks or 6 hours, finally resolving itself when one version of the chain conclusively pulled ahead of the other at block 225454, leaving the other chain largely abandoned, with only a small number of miners that are incapable of recognizing what has now become the main chain still mining it, while the bulk of the network quickly returned to normal.

Oh so it's only a temporary?

Can your card do over 1700mhz mem? Try to get the maximum mem clock that is stable and then multiply that by 0.6...that should be your core value.
You also have to play with thread concurrency values to get best efficiency.
Start with 8192, and work your way up in 256 increments till cgminer crashes. Then go back a notch and see if hash rate is worse than the notch below that. If it is go down yet another 256 notch.
You have to remove --shaders if you're using that value too.

What I'm seeing at each increments is 1st one would be 630 khps, then next 256 increment would be 640 khps, then next increment would bet 630 khps, then 640, then 630, etc. Is that pretty typical?

I haven't ever used --shaders.

Seems like you maxed your card out...try the lowest TC value that gives you 640kh/s and voila. Just watch the amount of stale shares, they should be below 5% of your total accepted shares.

To use concurrences this high, you may need to modify the registry/environment variables by adding these values:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]
"GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS"="1"

Is this one for mult-gpu? I don't have this one is why I asked.

Yeah each time I don't get a reject till I hit about 1000 shares.

I thought 7970's should hit 700 kh/s?

Temporary yes. Effort wasted - yes.
You can't tell which fork the people in charge of FTC will choose. If you mine on Fork2 and the devs choose to continue with Fork1, there goes all that time. It's the reason why people are saying wait until it gets sorted out.

Oh ok. I changed out all my FTC's for BTC's in BTC-e. Market is rising for them there.

Not all do 700kh/s, some do 800kh/s, some won't go over 550kh/s.
That's why the 7950s are better value for mining, costing less and always doing over 550kh/s, and up to 750kh/s with some luck and wc.

Good move, you gotta stay alert with alts, and trade when appropriate. You can play some day trading if you learn how to...I do from time to time and normally increase my mining profits by 10-25%

Whats the most profitable right now? I just set up a dual 6870 rig and want to start mining.

Edit: I registered and I am trying to mine LTC on this pool and it never starts. 50btc works fine so I know it's not my client.
