I have 2 big problems that i need fixed.
I got a new 6970 today and started to mine with it, getting around 360 mhash with it at stock settings. Whenever i try to overclock my mhash actually decreases. Is there any way to fix this so i can get more mhash?
My next bit of help is the hardest will top 1btc if u can solve.
I have a p7p55d-e motherboard, and NO ati card can be detected on the top slot. It works with my Nvidia cards but not my ati card. There must be a way to fix this so that i can get 2 cards running on this motherboard but i just cannot figure it out.
I have updated bios
updated all drivers
second monitor hooked up to the first card slot (blue slot)
none is working. Its not showing up in device manager and the computer wont even boot if thats the only slot with a GPU. The slot is fine it works fine with my nvidia 465.
any help would be great.
I have to go to class ill be back in 2 hours.
1) You can go up to 400 and beyond with the 6970, just need to overclock and download a few programs
-Which miner are you using? Guiminer? Phoenix?
I recommend phoenix, use these settings, should get 420 easily.
phoenix -u http://username.workername
:firstname.lastname@example.org:8337/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0 VECTORS AGGRESSION=12 BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false worksize=128
975MHz/685MHz with MSI Afterburner.
If you need help with setting that up, PM me, I'll hop on AIM/Skype and help you out.
Should be fairly easy.
2) Does your ATI card work in another slot?
-Is it seated correctly into the PCI-E Slot?
-Power connectors nice and firm?
-When you plug and boot, does the fan work (is it spinning?)
It may be possible your card is (DOA) dead on arrival or a driver issue, why I ask to plugin to another slot.
