Hello all. This is my first post. Started mining 2 days ago Smiley

Got a problem with the gpu-watch script which controls fan speed. I have a 6990 and I noticed that despite my one gpu temp sitting at 84deg the other was at 54deg. I noticed that my pheonix miner (pooling with bitcoinpool) was dead on the one core, miner idle. So it seems that gpu-watch thinks it should decrease the fan speed as the temp is not in general that high. But i think that 84deg is way too high to let that one core run even if the other one is idle. Since I am a newbie I cannot post on that thread. I am not a python dev so not sure how to fix it. As a temporary measure and for a way to keep miners connected if they die, I want to restart my miner every hour with cron. I find the miners go idle often. Is this how other people get around that problem? Is it okay to be restarting your miner every hour?

Thanks

I had a lot of problem with idling miner when I used bitcoinpool... I switched pool - problem's gone..which is very unfortunate for bitcoinpool..but they need the server power to handle the load.. Sad

Which pool are you on now? I see bitcoinpool added a new server today. So maybe that will help. Do you know if eliguis is good?

Thanks
