Hit "G" and it will bring up the menu, then hit "C" to change settings, "0" to select the gpu, then "M" to select memory. At this point type in the number for your memory and press enter, see if your hash rate increases or decreases. You can then press "E" to manually input your core clock as well. See if your hash rate increases or decreases and if your temperatures are within acceptable levels.

"C" is not an option in the GPU Menu...

post #145 of 226
Any idea why cgminer (3.7.2 kalroth) would simply idle and not get anything from any pools I try?

So I figured out my temperature issues. Changed the TIM to Antec Formula 6 and dropped my mining temperatures 11 degrees. Went from 90+ on my hottest core down to 79. I feel much better about running my card at this temperature, plus it boosted my kh/s by ~200 (from 1100kh/s to 1345khs/s).

The stock TIM looked horrible and was a runny goop that probably just fell of as soon as it was put on.

So, I got all frustrated and started googling again, focusing my searches on MINING, AMD, and NVIDIA. I found the below link, and it seems that the 2nd to last response answered my question. I can now OC the card through the config. Oddly enough, though I can now monitor the card through Afterburner, I still can't OC via Afterburner. Straaaange....LOL Close enough for me to consider the issue closed. biggrin.gif

i cant get it to work, i followed read absolutely everything
unless the servers are at fault, i can mine fine with guiminer but my hashrates arent too high, between 600-700 with a 290

this file i change to .conf and put into sgminer folder, i doubt the username and worker is conflicting, i can get it to work with guiminer, unless its the server


then the bat file i made has this, i know i first edit as txt file and then change to .bat




when i run sgminer i load the bat file after it shows me this


then the cmd goes blank and then loads this


should i try a different pool?




i havent made a backup user though, same user but with different worker
post #150 of 226
Try GPU Threads 2, Intensity 20, thread concurrency 24000. Or any of a number of settings found from the mining hardware comparison: https://litecoin.info/Mining_hardware_comparison

I don't know where you're located either but try a different port like this one: stratum+tcp://usa.wemineltc.com:3336
with a secondary: stratum+tcp://usa.wemineltc.com:80
