Ok, I have looked through the subforum, and have not seen anything about my specific question about the shares the miner shows, and the updates the unpaid balance updates show. When I first started the miner the unpaid ether balance went up faster with less shares, now that I have more shares showing I'm getting less unpaid eth balance. I'm not getting a lot of MH/s (23), don't judge I'm just testing out. 330 shares every 17mn, and when I get an update it's .00001eth. When I first started it was .00003eth in less than a minute.

Should I restart the miner every couple of hours?

Thanks any help is appreciated, as looking to build a rig to mine various coins.

I am not exactly sure but I will try and give an answer to your question, it might be wrong though. From what you described and I understood, my guess is that the difficulty of the ETH has increased the past few weeks, therefore you end up making less money.

However, it is advisable to turn off your computer/mining rig every once in a while (Once a month maybe?) to clean off any dust that might have accumulated. My front and bottom dust filters are filled with dust after 1 month of continuously running.

Thanks for the quick response, It was cumulative shares. that would be something if I was getting that many shares
every 17 minutes. I'm getting good effective current hash rates of almost 29 MH/s with two RX 460's.

I was thinking about overclocking them just a little.

You'll have to let your miner on for a while to be able to effectively calculate its hashrate, shutting down the rigs every few hours is not a thing you should do, hardly shut them every couple of weeks to dust them off, welcome aboard.

I'm counting on the default NiceHashMiner for mining standard bitcoins at the moment. My cpu is an i5-4460

What is the pool you are using ? I suggest you to use Ethermine.org, it will show you how efficient you are, and calculate your estimated earnings

I also use the software from https://ethmonitoring.com/  : it's free for 1 miner

Anyway, with 23Mh, don't expect to get rich soon...
