If you under clock your video RAM you'll see improvements using a worksize of 256 in my experience.

My settings:
GPU: 1065 MHz
RAM: 300 MHz
VCC: 1.11

phoenix.py -k phatk VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false AGGRESSION=12 WORKSIZE=256

Yeilds me 235 Mh/s on a Radeon HD 5770

lol, I'm already doing a little better than 235, but I guess thats just the difference in cards Cheesy

Thanks for the tip I'll let you know if I can get it up and running. I tried doing a GPU up/Mem down underclock at stock voltages but could not get anywhere near 1000 Mhz for GPU or 300 Mhz for mem.
That's 235 Mh/s for $90 @ 108W, this is a good speed for my card (5770).

According to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison you should be able to achieve around 392 Mh/s with the proper settings on a 5850.

If you're running linux, check out AMDOverdriveCtrl project on sourceforge, it allows you to underclock and such.

I'm new to bitcoin, I don't understand how bitcoins are transferred from your account on 'freebitcoins.org' to your wallet?
It all seems a bit confusing but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it!

Really wish I would have gotten into this earlier! I sold my 5870 for 314 on ebay and purchased a 6970 on newegg for 309(after rebates) I didn't plan on mining with the 6970 but was trying to cash in on bitcoin by selling the 5870 for much more than it's worth. Decided to give mining a try for a couple of days and now I'm hooked. Purchased a second 6970 and hoping I can make enough bitcoin to pay it off. Currently hashing at ~700 mh/s going to deepbit.

Hello. My name is Mike (actually Michael) and after reading about bitcoin, both from an economic and technical perceptive, I am impressed and excited. Can't wait to start buying some bitcoins from some exchanges, and trading, and most importantly, spending them on things. Read many threads on this forum and this community is awesome!

Hey, all! I've been lurking for a few days. Finally went to post, and spent the better part of 5 minutes trying to find the reply button! Finally got myself all sorted out, and I figured I better start posting in the 'noob' section and get it out of the way.

Sounds like a very interesting community, so far. I originally heard about Bitcoin a few years ago, was intrigued by it from a technical perspective, but I figured it would never fly. Recently I've been following the whole MtGox debacle, and I finding that the Bitcoin market is quite fascinating and already surprisingly well established.

It seems a lot of people feel that the recent events have tarnished the reputation of Bitcoins in general. On the contrary, it has definitely led me to research the currency more than I think I would have. I won't be opening an MtGox account anytime soon, but I am definitely going to get more involved in the Bitcoin market.

I'm also a software developer, so it's exciting to see all the 3rd-party code that has sprung up, and I'm excited to learn more about the ecosystem of websites and tools out there.

Anyways, that's my 0.02 BTC.

Hey everyone,

I have been hanging around for a week or so. Find the digital currency very interesting and hope to learn more about it. Still trying to get a good understanding of how the whole system works.

Tool_462 as seen on many hardware forums, long time Bitcoiner just never registered.  Now I want to post a "WTB" ad so I need some posts!

Hello.  I'll go by Ctrl Phreak on these boards.  As a grad in Math and Comp Sci, I'm very interested in meeting fellow developers and seeing what I can make BitCoin do for me.

If you're interested in doing dev work or have a project that could use a programmer, please shoot me an email or PM.

Hi, although I installed bitcoin a year ago its just been one of those things I run, having never generated a block, until I started reading these boards again a few days ago. Now I'm putting my 6850 to good use.
Sadly I think I've come back and switched to GPU hashing just at the point where I dont think I'll be any luckier generating a block Smiley

I am Tony F of the CottonFog Farm. I support bitcoin because I am thoroughly awake to the fact that my freedom has been trampled by outside forces that benefit greatly from having a monopoly on a debt based currency. I want to own some bitcoin. I currently have silver bullion and livestock that I will sell for bitcoin. Face to face in central florida or silver via mail. I have spent all weekend learning about bitcoin and I am certain that I would like to own some as well as mine for them. My computer is only producing 4.5/mhs using a gui CLminer. I want to buy a decent dedicated mining rig but only have silver bullion and dollars (mostly silver - i need the dollars to pay my bills) to spend at the moment. i looked into buying bitcoin via exchange but talk about a hassle. That is just sooooo much trouble. Id rather just buy a machine and let it run and let it pay for itself via pool mining. I have been mining for almost 24 hrs at the moment and have only earned 3/10 of a single penny at a price of $15/BTC. If I could average 2/ week I would be happy if the machine cost about $500.
I have been a contributing member of Economic Fundamentals google group for about 3 years and on youtube a bit longer. www.youtube.com/tonyfarese
I first heard about bitcoin from Max Keiser. Then i read a crappy article in Bloomberg Business Week. Then a youtube channel I subscribe to (DonHarrold) put out a video bad mouthing bitcoin yesterday. I get news from various sources so I do my own research. Don has been loosing credability lately. Either way, I do not agree with his views and I am here to do the things I mentioned above. If anyone is in central florida (deland area) and can help me out w/ a mining rig or wants to buy siver w/ bitcoin or fresh Berkshire pork or live hogs or milk goats I would like some bitcoin. Fresh goat milk or free range chicken eggs. Thanks for reading my intro.

You seem like you've done your "Homework" on Bitcoin compared to most Noobs...
Welcome, and +1 to You !

Hey.. Skype Me.. Beffjaker
