You don't want a universal waterblock as that won't cool the VRM and VRM temps are the real bottlenecks.

I use DangerDen blocks for 5970s.  They are solid.  They one at the link is designed for a "reference" style 5870.

The EK-FC5870 is the EK model which fits reference style 5870s.  EK is pretty much the cadillac of waterblocks.  

If you have a non-reference card well likely you should seek help from a watercooling forum like overclockers.  Non-reference can be very very very tricky.  Since the PCB can be different you need to pay close attention to make sure the waterblock will fit and there might not be any waterblock which does fit.

I got an email today from OKPAY saying they now support bitcoins, with instant conversion to USD, EUR, GBP, CHF or RUB.

From what I understand, if you have an OKPAY mastercard and you set your BitMinter cash out address to your bitcoin address at OKPAY, then it would work like this: Each time your balance reaches your threshold the bitcoins are sent from BitMinter to OKPAY. OKPAY then converts it to your chosen currency and it becomes available on your debit card to spend as you like. So after setting this up miners would be cashing out in one of the aforementioned currencies.

Has anyone tried this?

My local currency (NOK) is not supported. Perhaps I can still get a USD or EUR debit card but I guess the usage would be a bit limited for me.

Apparently you can also buy bitcoins at OKPAY.

Just a quick restart to get new versions in.

Now the transaction history will say "donation" instead of "payment" on your donation transactions. Wink

Actually there are a lot of changes behind the scenes to support future features.

I am going to give this a try. I will let everyone know how it works out in a month or two

Man, you can see when gpumax kicks in.... looks like about 30-40 GH/s of bitminter is on gpumax and drops off when a gpumax purchase is processed... Seems bitminter avg around 150Gh/s now (when there is not a gpumax purchase occcuring).

Four Bitcoin blocks mined today definitely improve the pool's luck, good job everyone.
Can we get a couple more until midnight?

DrHaribo good job with Bitminter, I've been there a little over a week and it's very nice, I already got a couple of coins Smiley hehe. If you don't mind a suggestion how about adding all the other bitcoin derived virtual currencies like devcoin, i0coin and ixcoin to the mining pool since they would cost no extra effort from the miners like we currently have with name coin and would make the pool more attractive since the overall payout would increase for no extra hash work.

Happy to hear you like the pool, Jaryu Smiley

My impression of the bitcoin-forks is that they all seem to be dying. Probably because they serve no purpose. Namecoin does have a purpose, but still doesn't really seem to be getting anywhere.

After namecoins were introduced on BitMinter it turned out most miners didn't actually want them. And many beginners just found them confusing. How do I transfer namecoins to my bitcoin wallet? Is something wrong, I just started mining here and only got namecoins. And many miners were saying: I don't have any use for namecoins, is there a place to donate them? In short, merged mining so far wasn't much of a success.

Namecoins might still take off. And I think the bitcoin technology could probably be used for other (useful) purposes that have not been thought of yet. So it is a good thing that I can fairly easily plug more block chains into BitMinter's merged mining. But they would need to be useful in some way, or at least give miners a significant value. Otherwise I think adding a bunch of useless and valueless currencies will just detract from the whole. Also they are at high risk of 51% attacks.

So I'm ready to add a good one, but I'm just not seeing a good one yet.

After having mined for an extended period (2-3 days) my computer now freezes up when I try to mine for more than a few minutes. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the program or my cards (6970 x2), guessing the cards.

Getting some pretty huge CPU spikes as well when I'm not really doing anything: http://i.imgur.com/gkHxt.png

Are you overclocking? How are the temperatures looking?

I'm not, and my current temperature for the cards is 68c. I actually can't get Crossfire enabled in my CCC, so I only see one of the cards.

That's a good temp under load. CPU temp looking ok under load too?

Could be a hardware fault I suppose. Sad

Remove one card, see whether the problem goes away.
If it doesn't, try the other card. Be sure to test both PCIe slots.

Any case of unexpected CPU usage you're unable to track down should raise a red flag. Make sure no malware has crept into your machine.
