Hey Doc,  Have you considered merging IXCoin and DevCoin along with NameCoin?
Ouch on the down time yesterday! I guess Black Lotus was Chasing the Dragon  Grin

How long do you figure a video card will take before it's fan burns out? I've had mine going for 3 weeks 24/7 and it's been fairly constant at 71C and 51% fan speed.

I just burned out a MB mining and I'll replace it with a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3. I've also burned out a couple of 7970s, they were used so I don't know how many hours cum. I have a 5970 that quit hopefully because its fan wore out. Ordered a $15 replacement fan and will install it in a couple of days.

Really. Never thought of that. I have the open case in the basement next to my AC unit since the air blowing off the video card was so hot at one point.

I wonder if any of you could help me. I couldn't find a local stratum proxy solution for bitminter. all the ones I've found are configured for slush's pool.

Is it possible to configure the existing one to work with the bitminter server or is there a version which I have missed?  Huh

Slush's stratum proxy is for all pools, it just has default settings for his pool.

Try something like:

mining_proxy_1.2.0.exe -o mint.bitminter.com -p 3333

There are also many other options you may want to have a look at.

You can use MSI-Afterburner for OC-ing each card individual.  Probably you already know that you shouldnot use the crossfire cable for mining.
MSI-Afterburner is straightforward and does a pretty good job.

Don't use the vector flag in your miner for 7970cards

Why?
   since you really are pushing the cards 24/7/365 overheating is common. 

with 2 or 3 or even 4 cards setting the clocks separating them can help.

 if you have the cards linked setting separate clocks is not possible.

  on my 3 x 7970 setup I have 3 completely different sets of clocks. can't do that with crossfire connections in place.

I have been running  some cards since aug of 2012 at 70c and 60% fans. 

 Mobos go bad

 psu's go  bad

and xfx fan's on the hd7970 go bad.    so far the only fans that died on me have been xfx fans on this card

 the double d cooler sucks.

Thx, I do not overclock my cards because doing so does not really add much to the processing speed and the heat is an issue. I also ran into a little instability over clocking so I just leave them to run normally.

Thx again always good  to learn something new.

Why did you eliminate temperature control for GPUs? The bitminter client lets them heat up to 95C and my PC shuts down. The options menu lets one select between C and F, but, I've never seen it display GPU temperature. I can run uninterrupted using cgminer.

I didn't eliminate it - it was never there.

Only BFL ASIC and BFL FPGA are supported for temperature display. Temperature display, fan control, over/under clocking control, etc. are all still on the TODO list.

If your card is not cooled well enough then I would think it is best to underclock it to achieve stable mining. Perhaps this is what you are doing with cgminer? With BitMinter client you'd have to use another program for the underclocking, like MSI Afterburner, which also has nice fan control.

  msi afterburner can underclock as well as over clock . every hd7970 I run is under clocked as watt to hash ratio is improved  as well as heat.

I used to mine with Bitminter before the Bitcoin prices skyrocketed, it is a great pool that I highly recommend. Also pretty strong hashing power. Smiley
