So I have been troubleshooting this problem with my friend over the phone for the last hour...
He has 4*5830s squeezed onto an MSI 790fx motherboard and fanned apart. Average temps do not go above 80 degrees celcius so he is good there.
The other day we had a scorcher... it hit ~41 celcius almost and one of his rigs turned off/froze/stopped working/whatever.
Now whenever he tries to start a miner through linuxcoin v0.2a (poclbm or phoenix)... his mining window "flashes open, and then immediately shuts".
I have only noticed such behaviour when I forgot to enter a kernel for phoenix, but he assured me that he was typing everything in correctly.
Anybody have any ideas as to what's up before I waste a ton of gas?!
- he can see all of his card temps through aticonfig (and set all of their clocks)
- he is using sapphire 5830s
- he is running linuxcoin v0.2a
- he is freaking out
