1  Other / Beginners & Help / 5830 phoenix Connecting... on: July 12, 2011, 05:31:52 AM
Specs:

OS: Win7 64 Ult
CPU: AMD 940 quad 3.0GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR2
Vid: Sapphire 5830 Extreme 1GB
OC: MSI Afterburner 970 core/ 500 mem
Miner: GUIMiner 2011-07-01
using built in OpenCL with these flags: -v -w128 -f60
temps: easily under 70C with fan at least around 70-80%

manually did the 3% Ma-function patch to the appropriate kernels.

With this setup I get 285/295 Mhash/s which I don't think is too bad. However I can't seem to get phoenix to work. I tried at first just to setup a new miner and use the phoenix.exe that came with GUIminer, but all it does is say "Connecting..." and never gets connected. I tried replacing the phoenix related files with whatever is on github for 1.5 with the same results.

Any pointers on how I can get phoenix working to see if I get better hash rates for my current setup?  Thanks
2  Other / Beginners & Help / Virtualized mining on: June 13, 2011, 04:51:17 PM
I'm a newbie so I can't post in the appropriate location... but

I was considering the issues of linux vs windows, and how easy it is to OC and monitor the video cards within windows...

Would there be any advantage to running linux virtualized within windows; using windows to control OCing and monitoring and linux for the actual GPU mining? or perhaps even vice-versa with windows virtualized?
