What 5830's are you using? I can't seem to squeeze that much out of mine. I haven't set up MSI afterburner yet....

What 5830 do you have?  I have the Sapphire 5830 that was 110 on newegg a week ago, and I am getting 306Mhash/s out of mine, but I have gotten it as high as 315Mhash/s.  Don't want to push it though so I run it only at 306Mash/s 24/7.  

Stock voltage
Using Sapphire Trixx software, overclocked to 1010mhz
memory underclocked to 300mhz
Running about 56c at full load.

Yes that's helping but at 1010/300 I'm getting about 250 mhs. I'll tweak it. Thx!!

Been mining since Wednesday on my core 2 duo at a whopping 6MH/s  Cheesy I started with minerd but that only gave me about 990kH/s. Changed over to ufasoft and now get just over 3MH/s per core. Five days of testing and messing around has gotten me 5 bitcents  Grin When I get time this week I hope to be up to 200MH/s gpu mining after I rebuild my other system.

I've started mining since I discovered bitcoin 3 days ago.

I get around 20Mhash and in three day I've made a whole 0,02 BTC.

Probably costed more than they where worth in electricity.

If can teach Go/Weichi/Baduk for BTC - I'm 1 kyu on KGS - 0.2 BTC for one hour lesson, 0.1 BTC for a game review - mail at Baduk4Bitcoin@gmail.com

I figured my dual quad-core processors would pump out some serious hash rates. I was severely disappointed Sad

Funny how much more efficient GPUs are vs CPUs.

So don't start out with 6990's. Start out with a couple 5830's and move up from there. Not many are starting with 6990's.

I'm a newbie, started out about two weeks ago and finally registered for this forum.

I have 2-5830s (an xfx and a sapphire) , and 2-5570s

I can't get the 5830's over 255mh/s, but I've been using the AMD overclocking built in to Catalyst.  I'll have to follow everyone else's lead on underclocking the memory to get it higher.

The 5770's are doing 195mh/s each

I can't get my 5830's over 210 come hell or high water. I tried the Trixx Utility but my system froze up. Maybe I need to up the voltage....?

I won't be overclocking too much, and I don't plan on over-volting.  I don't want to burn the chips up or get gatewear, so I will overclock but only a little bit, maybe 5-10%

Stock my 5830's did 230 on guiminer

It seems to me like mining is worthless unless you have a large rig or set of rigs already established to beat the electricity-bitcoin worth spread. You must be scaled. Seems like too much risk at this point. You might as well just trade if you think the BTC will increase in value. With all the GPUs sold out online, seems like mining is not worth all the trouble. Or, you could join a pool. Don't know much about mining cost-effectiveness right now though, maybe someone here can educate me. Would love to learn the history of mining competition.

I have been mining on a 5850, getting around 285MHps, just added a 6990 for $730AUD (~$770USD), so now im over or around 1GHps.

When this card pays itself off I'll buy another, and continue to reinvest all profits into mining, until either:
A. its no longer profitable, in which case I can sell the hardware at a profit on ebay (except for keeping a kick-ass gaming rig for me);
B. I make enough per day to live confortably off of mining

We shall see...

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Don't quit your day job. This sucker has an expiration date on mining. Or hold your coins and pray for $1,500 BTC. Congrats on getting the 6990, seem to be hiding under very large rocks state side.

Only Dual GTX 460 1GB's at home sadly, pushing around 158Mhash/s combined.
But have about 17 computers with GTX 570's to use for a few hours some days, so will definitely be seeing how much I can pump out with that XD

Hey Hey I'm fresh off the boat. Still pretty clueless about everything except some basics that I've picked up yesterday. First I need to read a lot more on the subject, because I see there is tons of people already saying to be careful.


Right now I have 2 questions if anyone could point me to the right direction

who/what determines difficulty and is there an approximate rate I could calculate it for the near term to run the numbers for my farm.

since I'm in Europe prices on 6690 and 5850 are a lot higher than in USA I figured out that I get the most M-hash/sec vs Watt vs price from Sapphire HD 6790, for 130 euros a pop. Thing is I didn't see anyone using this card on a massive scale so I'm not sure if there are any other difficulties with this option.

Is my info for 6790 correct :(at stock)

Approx 220 M-hash/sec
Approx 0.39 ฿/day
150 Watt



Thank you
skyhigh
