Hey guys,

I got my first 6gpu rig up and running at 177.5 mh/s. It would crash every couple of hours due to "GPU 5 hung in OpenCL." I lower the overclocking on the card that hung and that helped the rig run longer without crashing.

Last night everything went haywire. Within a couple minutes of booting up the rig with all 6 gpus it is now crashing to the blue screen with the Sad and in the corner it says "Thread Stuck In Device Driver" and restarts. When Claymore gets time to open before the blue screen crash the rig freezes within seconds.

I've been trying to troubleshoot this issue all day long and I'm confused. I've tried a lot :

1. Unplug the card that's been unstable mh/s from the mobo leaving 5 cards total in mobo via risers. The Rig boots into windows, loads claymore, and starts mining fine but one card hashes at 4 mh/s

2. I've tested that card that hashes at 4mh/s by itself and it hits 30 mh/s solid so I know the card works. I tested all cards separately into the mobo and they all hit 30 mh/s. Only 1 cards mh/s jumps around occasionally as it has since I first fired up the rig.

3. This was strange! I tested 1 GPU into the mobo by itself. The rig booted into windows, loaded claymore, and started mining but the fan on the GPU never turned on?Huh It heated up to 85c real quick and claymore stopped mining..

Is this a mobo issue, gpu driver issue?? Anyone tips on my first rig?

Thanks ahead of time!

it is driver most likely but could be a shit riser.

pull all the gpus but 1

get rid of the current drivers uninstall them

re install the drivers.

put in 1 card  if it works on riser 1  shut gear down  move  that gpu to riser 2

do this until  you know the gpu works on all six risers

then go to 2 cards  see if it works.  if it does set low clocks

like core at 1000
memory at 1700

add to 3 cards if it works

go to 4 cards low clock like  1000 1700

go to 5 cards low clock like  1000 1700

go to 6 cards low clock like 1000 1700

I had that board  kill 2 psus on me  it could be the board. I got it from newegg on ebay
