I have 3 6970's, which previously I had 2 in a ubuntu machine and 1 in an xp box.  I was averaging 330 m/hashes per gpu.  Today I put all 3 in my ubuntu box and now I average 280 - 300 m/hashes.  Why the drop in hashing power and is there anything I can do to regain the original hashing power?

Any ideas for me to try?  Or what could be the problem?

I don't know if there is an equivalent setting in Ubuntu, but make sure the "Power Control" setting in AMD's Catalyst driver is at 20%.  I have a single XFX 6970 running at 950 MHz and 420 Mhps with a temp that hovers around 70 degrees.  If I set the "Power Control" to 0%, my speed drops when I go over 900 MHz.

That's a very good configuration.

I got a nice boost when I switched from GUIMiner to bitminter miner.  It works really well for 6000 series radeon cards.  I was at 400s with GUIMiner and now I'm in 420s with 0.2% stale/rejected shares.  The author is very active on this board and is constantly adding features that users want.

I also have a XFX 6970. Clock @ 950, but my Power Control is at 5% getting 423Mhps. Runs about 70 degrees with the fan at 65%. I didn't see any increase when I moved the power control beyond 5%.

I think the "Power Control" allows the card to pull more current if it needs it.  It won't make a difference if there is not need for extra juice.  I was just lazy and my temps were low enough that I didn't tinker with it.
