Title: 4870hushs and Questions
Post by: touristas on March 11, 2011, 12:37:32 PM
Hi there.Great forum here,  have learnt loads of things !

Got a few questions if anyone can help will be much appreciated.

Got a 4870toxic(780/1000mhz) and after clocking it abit more(820/500) got 93000khush/s.(using poclbm_py2exe_20110222)
Also a quad Q9450 2.66Ghx o/c to 3.2 getting around 5500khash/s (using bitcoin)
Are those hush's any good ?

I also cant get the batch file i made to start up "poclbm". Pops me up a " cannot find user=" me ".Ive tripple checked reinstalled and still nothing.
So i have to run it manual from the cmd prmt.
Their i also have to set if im gonna use GPU or CPU in the devises that come up.

Thats part one  :o

I see in my Bitcoin that im generating around 5500khash/s and have been doing so for a day and gone up to the max block atm 113132.From taskmnger i see this is maxing out all 4 cores to 100%.
Still "0" transactions .Am i doing something wrong whipping my rig for nothing ?_?

poclbm looks like a stress test for my g/card with temps going to 80 celsius !_! (set fan manual to 100% temps not so bad)
Are those hush's working/counting with my Bitcoin ?
Is it ok to post a site or my batch file commands to see if anyone can see a mistake ?

Thank you

When o/c to the max i know it could go it almost flew out the my case 820/1030mhz.
Temps when up to 82 celsius(last i saw)and pc when crazy on me and it shut down 4m before i blew myself up.

After playing with the clocks i noticed that memory clocks dont affect hush's and left clock around 800/500mhz.
stock setting are 750/900 - my toxic is 780/1000. Not a bad "little" card

You're doing it wrong.

93Mhash/s looks pretty good - compare it with the hardware comparison list (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_Hardware_Comparison), where another miner was getting only 78Mhash/s.

Sounds about right for CPU mining, but my advice would be to turn off CPU mining and just use the 4870. You'll be generating a lot of heat, and using more power, for very little gain.

The Bitcoin client will only report the CPU miner's hash rate: it won't tell you what the GPU miner is doing.

At the present rate of difficulty, it'll take your 4870 nearly 41 days on average (http://www.alloscomp.com/bitcoin/calculator.php) to generate one block: I'd recommend you look at joining a mining pool instead of "solo mining".

Thats what im afraid of.

But what am i doing wrong ?
I dont think i've understood the complete way this thing works.

Our cpuz/gpuz help solve lets say a "problem".
1 problem = to 1 block = 50bitcoins ?
That 1 block is divided to shares and each share you solve = to a "%" of the block.

What i havent understood is who pays?
I have registered to a few sites that say they pay that % of the block.
Where do i input the username i used so they know my pc did it ?

Is all that right ?

Also can i join to multi mining pools ?
41days !_! - that bad my old 4870

time for a upgrade then as soon as some cash starts flowing my way:)

Nice to hear that i out ran the rest with the same card !_! :D ;D

Just found out i had all at full throttle for over a day with all wrong settings and made.......nothing  :o :o :o

Thanks for the tips already joined and set up and running stable for a few hours.


NEW QUESTION

I also got a ageia physics card installed that i forgot :)
Is that of any use for this kinda stuff ?_?

You have almost the same system as I do.
I get around 85mhash/s with my Asus HD4870 512mb @ 750/900 (no oc) and AMD APP 2.3 (Catalyst 11.2).
But I don't need to let my fan run @ 100%. Tweaked my bios so that it won't get higher than ~80C. (I guess 45% fan speed).

And ~4500khash/s on my Q9450 @ 2.66GHz (no oc)

Just got my old little 4870 pumping out almost 100Mhash/s !_!

o/c it a bit more - think this is the max i can get GPU 845mhz  ;D and at 860 i get a freezzzzze

Stock is 750mhz(around 75Mhash)
toxic is  780mhz(around 85Mhash)
o/c to   820mhz(around 92Mhash)
o/c to the max 845 around100Mhash ! <-----had to tweak the fans to keep temps under 72 celcius

memory speed underclocked to 200mhz as it does not affect speed at all but helps abit with the temps !

Im sure you can get roughly the same speeds with ur 512mb version

Very pleased with my card but still gonna upgrade soon
