1  Bitcoin / Mining / Setup Guide 6990 with latest phoenix - hope it helps on: May 15, 2011, 11:24:48 AM
Setup guide for 6990 cards!! Windows 7 x64

Ok guys, just spent a little time trying to find the best values for my 6990 - I have had many differing hash rates dependant on settins, ad on this card it can go from 290mh/s to what im at now 400mh/s

To start with i downloaded the newest Phoenix miner:

I then extracted straight to my c:\ drive with folder phoenix : c:\phoenix

Once the files are extracted i got to work with the settings, firing straight up i got a lowly 300mh/s but trawled through this thread, made various changes and got myself up!

I decided to create a .bat file so i could run it from the desktop - starting both cores of the 6990 at the same time.

How to Create a .bat file

Right click on your desktop and create a new txt document - i.e notepad

Call it whatever you want, you need to now (if you already dont have the setting enabled) make sure the file type is displayed for the document so you can modify it.

If you need to enable that simply go to folder options and untick "hide known filetypes"

rename the ".txt" document to ".bat"

Right click the now .bat file and select edit, it will look just like a notepad file, now you can start typing.

Here is what mine looks like - you can copy and paste this into it, but remeber to put your settings in Smiley

start /DC:\phoenix phoenix.exe -u -k poclbm DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP AGGRESSION=11 WORKSIZE=128
start /DC:\phoenix phoenix.exe -u -k poclbm DEVICE=1 VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP AGGRESSION=11 WORKSIZE=128

The above settings will get you mining on lukejrs pool Eligius @ around 400mh/s with 925 core on the graphics card.

Save the .bat file and run it from the desktop Smiley

Just thought it might help some newbie miners (like me) without taking up loads of time.

Final Thoughts

My main gains came from going from BFI_INT* to just BFI_INT without the "*" and setting my worksize to 128 - the aggression always helps too

Donations welcome if this helped even just a little.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Is there any way to tell if you have set up solo minig correctly? on GUIMINER? on: May 11, 2011, 06:38:10 PM
Hi all,

I have set up my guiminer for solo, have created my bitcoin.inf file and added the RPC username and pass, started the bitcoin.exe in server mode and ran my cards which are reporting a hashrate

I have this message in the console part of the guiminer

"Running command: poclbm.exe --user=myusernamedeleted--pass=mypassdeleted -o localhost -p 8332 -d0 --verbose -v -w 128
Listener for "Default" started

Running command: poclbm.exe --user=myusernamedeleted --pass=mypassdeleted -o localhost -p 8332 -d1 --verbose -v -w 128
Listener for "gpu2" started"

In the GUIMINER summary i am getting :

And in the main GPU page have these here:

In the bitcoin client itself, there is no physical way to tell if its doing anything from what i can see??

Help please.

Im really sorry, couldnt find a full guide for this, but is it possible to set up the GUI client to solo mine?

Has anyone got a step by step guide on what to do from start to finish (i.e do i need to have the bitcoin program running?)
