Firstly Hello I am a bitcoin n00bie so please go easy on me Smiley

I have 2x HD 5770 and 1x 6870 in a BAMT rig.

Does overclocking the memory help with the hash rate?


where I have 3 cards how to I point each card to a different pool?


Any other pointers would be great?

Just try it and find out, only takes a few hours to mess around with the o/c.

If you want to point each card to a different pool just download GUIminer, makes the process very easy

For bitcoin, overclocking memory won't help, it will even worse the things as the memory only will heat up the PCB. For BTC mining, set is as low as possible from MSI Afterburner.

Mortus,

It is easy, in the /etc/bamt/bamt.conf file there is a place to specify a pool file for each GPU You can specifiy the same pools file or a seperate on for each GPU.

example:

gpu0:

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines

  pool_file: /etc/bamt/pools_0

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines

gpu1:

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines

  pool_file: /etc/bamt/pools_1

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines

gpu2:

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines

  pool_file: /etc/bamt/pools_2

# Omitted lines

# Omitted lines


Then you need to create three pool files in the /etc/bamt directory called pools_1, pools_2, pools_3

Thanks All,

I have tested gui miner and it was giving 240mh on my 6850 but BAMT is giving 275mh so no brainer really plus it boots fast and no HDD Smiley

Thanks MrBSmith Smiley   Is it better to mine each GPU separately or doesn't really matter?

Mortus,

I don't think there is any real advantages other than being able to mine several types of coins at the same time.
