Well the bios flash did not help....... at all. The Bios flash was successful itself but hashing wise no improvement..... I will continue to try other bios similar to the PowerColor One


Update: just look at the bios of the PowerColor that is running at 735 KH/s and I saw the bios is not on Techpowerup so I copy the bios and flash it on to the card in question.

Update 2: Switch Powercolor cards and the card with issues is now hashing 650 KH/s....... -_- I think I need more ram on the computer only have 2 GB atm.

Update 3: My hunch was right. Got it to mine over 600 KH/s (647 KH/s) Just needed to add 2 GB ram with a total of 4 GB on 32 bit OS.

I wouldn't have guessed RAM was the issue. I get the same hashing out of a vcard running in my AMD Sempron machine with 1 Gb of RAM as I do on my server with 2 quad core processers and 16 Gb of RAM.

Scrypt mining is weird alright, the computer above the computer I worked on, is working fine with 2GB....

also thread concurrency is 8192 if system only has 2GB, after I upgraded to 4GB I can go over 20000 thread concurrency no issues.

confirmed, and it's not soo long ago either! I'm sure there will be plenty of 15min blocks again... though it seems a lot of miners have left slush during this block already... tststs impatient miners

We almost at 100% but I got a feeling this slows exponentially so that 99.99% CDF could take an hour ?

Not sure if more shares are needed with higher diff, I guess so

It doesn't work like that STT - you can't put a time on it - theoretically we could wait a week without finding a block - it's just unlikely. The CDF is merely a statistical indicator not a rule.

And mining shares with a higher diff will only serve to ease the load on the network communications between you and the pool servers - has no affect on whether we find blocks faster or slower.

The only thing to do is be patient and carry on mining - any one person in the pool could be just about to solve the next block...

Plus the more people drop out, the bigger your slice of the pie will be when we solve a block... of course there is that whole pesky idea about less hashing power=longer time between solving blocks...  but lets just ignore that for now. 
Good JUJU  come our way!

I want to shut this machine down and mirror the HD... but I know damn well if I do that this block will end in minutes then we will find 2-3 quick ones!! that is always what happens when I attempt these things!

Yeah best to do that kind of stuff after a few short blocks - but it's always a gamble Smiley

Funnily enough I had to power down 2 pc's for 15 mins and chose to do it 3 hours into this marathon of a block - good call.

I increased my hashing capability by 50% yesterday, three blocks before this mega long block.  I was hoping to see a great looking graph at the end of the day.  I guess I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow. Undecided
