1  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Capping Hash Rates? on: June 18, 2011, 02:04:47 AM
down clocking is definitely the way to go. not pausing the process!! urgs ... al the megahashes you would loose ...

aticonfig --adapter=0,1,2,3 --od-setclocks=550,900
is how I would down clock all 4 cards but don't copy this line if you have a differendt video card. use getclocks to find valid values first.

Hmmm alright yeah I understand that the adapter values are for which GPU and the clocks are for whatever card in the format of <core,memory> hmmm...

Any idea on how this would work with guiminer flags? I'm kind of a coding/batch/linux noob so I went with guiminer instead.

I wish I had a list of all the possible GUIMiner flags... jeez why don't they have a site even explaining these things =(
2  Other / Beginners & Help / Capping Hash Rates? on: June 17, 2011, 09:53:45 PM
Quick question, was just wondering if there is a way to cap the hash rate?

Most people are would be like "wtf moar is bettar" but due to personal health issues I need to keep the fans down, so I was wondering if there were flags which could be used to cap the hash rate at a certain level...

ex. I am pulling 700Mhash/s, and would want to cap it at 600Mhash/s so my GPU is not at full load and the fans will be lowered.

I've heard of -s but I dunno what the flag does, i've heard it can help though for things like this?Huh

Thanks all, and happy mining!

Alright cool, do I need the whole Catalyst Suite then from the Catalyst package, or do I just need the Control Center application? I just dont know if it would install 2 sets of drivers or something.

Sorry for being ATI retarded haha, just don't know much about it
Install it all, then the AMDAPPSDK (either 2.1 or 2.4)

Thank you!!! =]  Will let this thread know how my CF 6950-> 6970's run with SDK 2.4!!!

All thanks to you brotha!

I just think it went up so fast because of all of the media I would expect it's only natural to see a major correction in the next week.  

Also, would it be possible for say the US Government (or someone else) to buy all of the bitcoins they can since there are only around 6 million in existence and then they would become the market makers?  I mean it would be great if someone did that because they wanted to embrace the technology...but if someone who wants to fight it/destroy it - does it...couldn't that be another risk?
Well, can you imagine what the last Bitcoin owner is going to charge for his last bitcoin?

My point being, you can only buy Bitcoins if they are for sale.

He can charge whatever the hell he wants for the last bitcoin, if the markets crashes then he just won't have a buyer so where's the value?

Too many people overlook the fact that even though something can be assigned a value, if no one wants to buy it then it's worthless.

Havent been using ATI for quite some time and now decided to switch purely for bitcoin reasons, and anyways I see that APP SDK 2.4 is reccomended for my card but I dont know the specifics of what SDK has in it... like will I need to install Catalyst Control also, or just SDK, or both?Huh?

Hopefully someone can clear this up pretty quick =]

what a bad could have boght 2 5850 for that price...i have one and it rocks

Yeah but you have to realize what you've dedicated yourself to as well.

By buying 5850's sure you save yourself the money, however you have a lot more liability... if the whole bitcoin market crashes and is wiped out, or people want to jump ship, the market will be flooded with 5xxx series cards as said previously, and that means they will even further decrease in value since everyone will be undercutting eachother as well.

Secondly, you are sacrificing a good option to also game with the setup. The 5xxx series have a lot of crossfire issues with playing some modern games, and especially any older games.

Finally, you leave yourself without the ability to re-sell them for much in the next year even, because in Fall the 7xxx series are going to be out and if you think about it in current times, no one right now wants to buy 4xxx series do they?

You've completely dedicated yourself towards a dedicated rig, with hopes that the market will support you, and you have no re-sale value.

As you can tell I am a much bigger supporter of buying 6970's as I have done so myself.  (Technically 6950's unlocked into 6970's)

I just wanted to make sure here....

Is it just me which is experiencing bitcoins forums being SUPER slow and sometimes unresponsive at times?Huh  My net connection is solid and every other site is working well, I just was wondering if other people are getting the same sort of experience on here at times?

9  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Two 6970s not as efficient as one? on: June 13, 2011, 08:07:45 PM
Hey just a quick question regarding your system I actually just finished the process of getting my 6970's (well, 6950's which I just finished flashing to 6970's... and I really hope u did the same), and anyways I havent been able to run both together since I believe I need a bigger power supply.

what PSU are you using? I was thinking of going 1000W so I could even add a third sometime down the line

actually I dunno if this is just me but I realized not bitcoinmarket is kinda crappy... they just use what... hourly updated rates?  I guess Mt.Gox is the only place worthwhile trading if you want to get in on the volatile rates as a day-trader (I'd love to...)

fml being from Canada I dunno what I should do to get Gox dollarsssssssssssssssssss ahhh..... Angry

joking lol, I think it's awesome to see something like this which is slowly becoming more mainstream out of a theory paper which was written, it's absolutely stunning to see that transition

Can I deposit PayPal funds to Bitcoin Market?

You can not deposit PayPal funds directly to Bitcoin Market since PayPal frowns upon alternative currencies. However, you can send and receive PayPal funds with other members by trading BMBTC/PPUSD. Bitcoin Market holds the seller's Bitcoins until the seller has received PayPal funds from the buyer. Then the seller confirms payment and the Bitcoins are dispersed to the buyer's Bitcoin Market account. In short, Bitcoin Market acts like an escrow agent for PayPal payments.

According to this, they still use it as an escrow sort of holding for dealing with paypal trades, unless I am missing something here? (I got that info by clicking on the news "we do not accept paypal deposits"

I am just guessing they don't do direct deposits, and just are a tool for trades now?

If anyone is able to make an invite for me I'd love to take one!

Trading on mt.gox would be nicer but I can't use paypal to start that way so I will have to start using bitcoinmarket!

Thanks ahead of time =]

If this transaction happened it would be huge news!!

.............but if the car is stolen....  Embarrassed

It would still be huge news, it would just be accompanied with a mugshot and a wanted poster instead LOL
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Too late to start mining? on: June 13, 2011, 06:40:36 AM
At this point, I would reccomend using 6000 series cards. The 5000 series cards will lose ALOT of value if the bitcoin ever fails. The 6000 series can still be used as a gaming card

This is my take on it all.

For example, as a starter I have been a gamer for whenever I am using my computer so I have a GTX480 currently which is amazing for gaming, but sucks for mining (sad how it has to be this way LOL), so anyways I was thinking to sell this card, buy a single 6950 which I would unlock into a 6970, which is pretty much on par with a 5870, but with more headroom, and also higher clocks... AND it is still an excellent card for gaming with as well.

I play games like Aion etc which are more demanding on full settings, and it's also known that crossfire setups with the 5xxx series in Aion have issues and dont even work, so getting a 6xxx series card is a great single card option for me, and as I play games (and mine during any afk time), I will make profits to buy even another card. This will net ~750Mhash/s, AND double as a sick gaming rig AND ALSO retain a lot of it's value if I ever needed to sell out.

Demoncrest has spoken =]  lol

Hello community & mods!

I'm looking to get out of just so I can simply begin investing in bitcoin at the moment while the market is being quite volatile... 3 and 1/2 more hours for me of login time kind of changes my ability to get involved in the swings that the market is currently having right now, and I was looking to use the Mt Gox trading section to get started =]

Let me know if I can have a quick admission, that would be totally awesome!

Thanks Smiley

19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Curious about 1:1 pay/gox trades... (avoiding scams) can someone enlighten me? on: June 13, 2011, 06:32:38 AM
Paypal isnt accepted here

(god it felt good typing that)

Oh really? I never knew that... how else can I get money from paypal onto my Mt.Gox then =/??? I've been looking for a few ways since I want to start investing.

Like, correct me if I'm wrong but Mt.Gox is essentially a trading company for Bitcoin/USD like a stock.... you can purchase bitcoins 1 second, they go up $2 in value, you can then sell them... etc?

like day-trading no?

how much is 8700 bit coins in US $ roughly?

Well, even though todays prices are fluctuating, right now it's $24.1USD -> 1BTC so....

24.1 x 8700 = $209,670USD

might want to reconsider the price due to recent bitcoin increases there OP   LOL
