No need to go to BTC Guild. I have earned almost twice as much here as I did there. And I tested both PPLNS and PPS.

Ok, after some extensive research I have pin-pointed why our luck is currently bad - clearly some members of our group are partaking in one or more of the following deeds:

    Picking a penny up if it is tails up
    Getting dressed with your left arm/left leg first
    Seeing an owl during the day
    Don't knit a pair of socks for your boyfriend or he'll walk away from you.
    Killing ladybugs or spiders (especially money spiders)
    It is bad luck to close a pocket knife unless you were the one who opened it.
    "Sleeping with feet towards a door will lose you your soul forevermore"
    If an owl hoots three times in your garden.
    Sleeping on or under a dinner table.
    Starting a venture on a Friday.
    Killing a bee within your home.
    Turning a loaf of bread upside down once it has been sliced will bring you terrible luck.
    Saying the word "Pig" at sea.
    If you ever drop a knife, picking it up yourself will bring you bad luck in money and love. You should ask someone else to pick it up for you. Supposedly comes from old-time etiquette where dropping a utensil was considered extremely rude and bending to pick it up would be the same as flipping your dinner guests a "V".
    To start a new venture, meet someone new, or start a relationship on Friday 13th.
    Ivy growing on a house protects the inhabitants from witchcraft and evil.
    Stabbing your needles though your yarn balls brings bad luck to anyone who wears something made from that yarn.

Sorry. I said "bloody pig" at the baltic sea a few days ago. I'll make amends.

I'm sure it will be fine once we are not getting 5-10 blocks a day lol

Doubled my Hash and halved my payout Cheesy

I dabble on both, and I find (as I should find), that slush's pays more on average if you give it long enough to deal with the bad luck vs the good luck, and the BTC Guild's PPS is just a nice solid method with easy payouts.  It's just these really, really bad days that hurt things.  Over the last 2 days, with this huge spat of bad luck, basically have lost a full days worth of mining compared to a PPS.  But let it ride, and eventually it should even out.

So, it comes down to personal preference.  PPS for a zero variance (excepting of course difficulty changes) reward, or a score system like slush, which pays based on luck.

To all those who pointed out my guiminer problem was because I had all three miners pointed at the same gpu, you were right - I was
smart enough to set the GTX 480's up correctly but forgot to check the same when I cloned 2nd & 3rd gpu from my first 7870 miner.

guiminer connects to stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 ok, and all three are putting out 360+ MH/s.
I'm happy that you're getting 360+ MH/s on your Asus HD7870DC2-2GD5-V2 gpus.  The Fedex dude was just here a couple of hours ago to deliver two of exactly the same cards that you have to replace a couple of mining-challenged Nvidia GPUs on an old gaming rig.  I have come to the conclusion that generally, AMD cards that are moderately OC'd, usually hashes around 26% of the number of stream processors.  So I figured that I would be getting around 265 MH/s (26% of 1024 stream processors) out of each of these cards.  At what clock are you getting 360+ MH/s with, may I ask?

7850 - I got about 330MH/s - 1200Mhz
7870 - 430-450MH/s - 1215Mhz
7950 - 540MH/s - 1150Mhz
7950 - 520MH/s - 1100Mhz

That's what I've been getting returned the 7850 now running two 7870, two 7950.
Thanks...and please see "Edit" to my original post (eyes too slow, fingers too quick).  Anyway, are those clocks sustainable?  I imagine that you must be either in a cold region or in a very well-cooled data center.  The only time I get up to such clocks is when I try to do a quick benchmark...and during winter...and then it dies.

I found a good param for cgminer for keeping your gpu cool :

--auto-fan --temp-target 70

My 7870 OC edition runs stable on 1250... With air temperature at 26 Celsius... Not even fan on full blast... Temp sub 70... But it is not in a closed computer...

-auto-fan --temp-target 70

I also added --auto-gpu  just in case if I see air temp over 30... And I'm not sure why but if you setup GPU and RAM speeds from cgminer it runs cooler...

EDIT: 7870 cmd line setings... --temp-target 68 --auto-fan --gpu-fan 50-100 --auto-gpu --gpu-engine 1100-1250 --gpu-memclock 625

I think one of my 7950's is a bit weak Sad I can only reliably keep them all at 1050.  These weren't the best cards just xfx "double d" base models.  They are located in a basement that's around 60f and not in a case still hitting 75c on the top card then a couple degrees lower for the cards.

Did you replace the paste between the GPU and cooler? I'm using Arctic silver...

Usually see 7870 mem clocks between 4500-4900 for gaming rig, but LTC mining doesn't need very high memory speeds, so setting them low helps the card run cooler, even if the gpu is oc'd.

FWIW: I am running a 7870 and a 7970 in the same PC. They are running from guiminer with just -v -f0 and -w 128 or 256 flags, but I set the clock performance from Catalyst Control Centre.

7870 is giving 430MHash/s at 1170/1200 engine/mem, with fan set to 60% and power -5%. At engine 1200 it crashes fairly quickly.  Runs at 66C, VRM1 at 71C

7970 is giving 645MHash/s at 1125/1000, 60% fan, -5% power. Runs at 67C, with VRM1 at 88C

One side is off the computer, the PSU is sitting on top, and it's in the cellar where it's nice and cool. Plus we're about 700ft/210m above sea-level, in a rural so that's generally less warm all round!!!!

I have a couple of XFX 7950DD rev3, one will do 1100MHz with no monitor and the other 1025MHz @ 1.030V (default), but monitor drops that by about 70MHz, the rev5  I have will do 1200MHz all day long @1.250V (default) but drinks the juice, mostly run them @ 700MHz where the voltage drops to 0.95, the rev5 (asic 66%) system, 2 cards pulls 250W, the rev3's (asic 87%) x2 pull 330W at 700Mhz.

I'm not going to void my 1 day old cards for a possible decrease in temps yet Wink they all have little void stickers on the screws.  I have as5 sitting here waiting for when I get brave.

interesting you post that cause thats about what i get on my 7970 at stock clock

about 530-550mh/s
and 26% of 2048 is 536.48 so its workable Smiley thanks
