I am working remotely. The machine was dead a few hours ago, so I asked someone else (who has little computer skills) rebooted it. Soon as it get booted, I sshed to it and reconfigured all the three video cards to slower 825 MHz core / 900 MHz ram frequencies, and then started the miners. Just a few minutes later, the first video card stopped working, I sshed to it again and it shows me as above.

Dam that's a haxor 5850.

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.

I was extremely unlucky these days... My notebook was broken, it suddenly turned on itself last night in my bedroom and turned itself off after a couple of seconds, after a few minutes, same thing happens again, but never respond to my power button press. It's like there were some ghosts in my room. I ordered 20 HD5850 but only 16 of them work, even these 16, 5 of them need daily reboot. I ordered a dozen of (secondhand) motherboards and only half of them work as expected... I can't believe it's just due to hot weather or secondhand hardware. There must be some fengshui problem in the new garbage... Sad Sad Sad

I need someone who knows fengshui to show me how to arrange my hardware to maximize my mining chi.

Sensor 0 or 3 is usually the VRM (voltage regulator module) on the GPU. Temperatures of 90 to 130c are quite usual on air cooling, and the VRM's are specified to take this kind of heat
(esp. the relatively expensive Volterra modules on 6990's which can take temps of even up to 150c without throttling)

On normal cards (non 6990) 135 to 150c will degrade the VRMs very fast or kill the card in 24/7 usage.
