allright, to introduce why i thought of this:
im currently mining on my workstation/game machine, using an HD5770
problem is, if i set my aggression too low (<
the Mhash/s goes down about 10, and if you're doing 208, thats alot
if i set it too high (>
youtube vids, games, movies and shows, everything that requires GPU gets slowed down
untill now, i just stopped mining every time i watched a youtube vid or something, but youtube doesnt take 100% of my GPU (thank god!) so alot of Mhash went wasted whenever i did something like that
so i came up with a solution
basically, we're going to set up a second miner, that has a far lower aggresion, that will mine whenever you are watching a movie, are gaming or whatnot so that spare GPU power doesnt go wasted
this way, im getting 80~90% of GPU load whenever im watching a youtube vid, instead of 0~1%
also, you could setup the second miner on a different pool, so whenever your main goes down, the second will go on (iknow there are more sophisticated options for this, but this is quick 'n easy)
so here's a picture of a step by step:
ofcourse this is in GUIminer, but im sure its not too hard to duplicate in other miners
so, any thoughts, questions, or comments; HIT ME!
also, if you think this is usefull, please send me a thank you on: 1MyYDvhGtm4SQA52WhFaBjyYKHvCsFrjw7
