Code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
sgminer.exe  -o stratum+tcp://united.wemineltc.com:3335 -u username -p password -I 20 -g 1 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 27400 --gpu-fan 70




currently mining with 800-830 kh/s for an hour , my card is on 62C.
Any suggestion what should i add ? (I am throwing everything in a .bat file). Hardware again:
GPU : Sapphitre r9 290 Tri-x OC
PSU: 1000W (want to add two more r9 290 Tri-x OC)
RAM: 4 GB DDR3 1333
CPU: AMD FX 6300
Well it was working for about 7 hours and it freezed.I dont know exactly what sgminer said , because a friend of mine which i told to monitor the machine when i am not at home said "the machine has stopped again" and he just turned it off. I added to the .bat file --gpu-engine 1000 and --gpu-memclock 1200, will see how it goes.

Hey guys. I'm getting about half of the hashrate that I should be getting. I'm running a single gigabyte 7990 and it seems like I should be hashing a lot faster than I am. Any suggestions would be appreciated.




Edit: For some reason my core clock had been had, pushed it to 950 and memory to 1500 and then core voltage I reduced to 1.090, going to try to reduce that a little bit more because I'm running hot. Added a couple of fans to my gpu and I'm still around 95 degrees. Going to add a floor fan and see how low I can get it. This card is really hot lol

Thread Starter 
Try same settings with 2 gpu threads. Or try keeping 1 gpu thread and going to intensity 20. Also try thread concurrency 8193. Or if using high intensity with one thread may also need higher tc.. check the litecoin wiki.. on my phone otherwise id get link but it should be in op

Thank you DM. I ended up finding a thread online after a lot of searching and found a nice conf that I stole. Give's me 1100 kh/s, it would give me 1300 but my first core gets up to 95 degrees C and stays there so I had to reduce the intensity to 12. I think it's worth it to keep it under 85. Once I get a fan on the system I think it will be ok though!

Edit: Alright I cannot get my under volt to stick through afterburner or my .conf file. HW Monitor always showsa constant voltage of 1.200 compared to my 1.090 for settings. It's very frustrating. Open to suggestions.

what card do you have?
your rig signature says you have a 660 headscratch.gif

and that much kilohash from one card? no way wubsmiley.gif

You still have 2 spaces between the sgminer.exe and the o before stratum. not really a good idea to construct a .bat file like a conf file

I just haven't updated my mining rig yet. I'm running a 7990 right now that I just got set up today. My 660 is in my main rig that I game and word process on. This new mining rig will soon have 3x r9 290's and a 7990, once everything gets here anyways. Once I get all of my stuff I'll update my rig.

Okay, I'm probably missing something obvious and silly, but I need some help.

First of all, here's the basics on my system:
i7-3820, P9X79, 16GB, well-ventilated case, Windows 8.1
Primary GPU: MSI GTX 670 2GB - Used for display and mining...currently at ~310 kh/s
Seconday GPU: Sapphire 6870 Flex 1GB - Mining only, no display hooked up...currently hashing at ~288 kh/s
All drivers are current.

Sounds fine, right?

Well, I have a second Sapphire 6870 Flex 1GB in another PC (single PCI-e slot Dell) that is getting ~310 kh/s

Why the difference? Well, I CAN'T SEEM TO OVERCLOCK THE 288 KH/S CARD!!! Afterburner sees the card, acknowledges that it's there, but no values are listed for any of the OC sliders, and it lists no data from the card in the monitor section. I can't even change the fan speed.

I can run GPU-Z and see that the card is running stock clocks (900/1050), even though I have specified 970/1085 in the .conf file.

What the heck is going on? Is it because I'm running NVIDIA and AMD side by side? I know it isn't anything to do with the card itself, as I had it running just fine next to an R9 270X in another PC without issue. Sure, I know that I'm just scraping after another 20 kh/s, but now it's the technical issue that's bugging me.

Any and all suggestions/explanations appreciated!

Have you tried disabling ULPS in afterburner? Have you tried changing the core clock and memory within the miner (with it running)? Have you deleted the .bin files that have been generated previously from your newest settings? Other then that, your guess is as good as mine! I'm having trouble down volting my card. For some reason, no matter what I'm doing, the voltage always stays the same. I'm reading from hardware monitor. I have voltage set in the .conf, in afterburner (unlocked through their .cnf file). I don't know what to do either lol

Tried disabling ULPS....no change. Bin files were deleted. Have no idea how to change core-clock and mem-clock in the miner....not a listed option from what I can see.
