I recently bought an computer with 3x HD5870.
And now i've got 2 problems
let me first describe my goal: My goal is to be able to play games on the computer, And mine bitcoins when i don't.
Like a friend of mine has: he's got in GUIMiner -45, so that when he plays games, the miner client won't disturb him that much.
I thought that reaching this goal was going to be easy, but it's not.
My fans are behaving strange. Sometimes, they just go back from 70% to 50.
this is a problem, because at 50 they get like 90 degrees, which is far too much in my opinion....
I'm using MSI Afterburner, Does anyone here know another (not too difficult) programm i can try that maybe will work? or perhaps a fix?
I can't combine gaming with bitcoins mining.
The thing is, that the cards won't mine in GUIminer, f45, not even in -f20. Only in f1 they mine good.
(with not mining i mean 1-8mhz/s instead of the 430 i normally have)
I'm having the same problem with phoenix.
I thought i could fix this by not using the cards at all, and just use the 2500k to play some humble games.
but that doesn;t seem to work either, because then the fans swith back to 50%, and are locked that way in MSI Afterburner.
Thank you for reading this big post, thanks in advance if you're able to help
