I see many here using phoenix, and a bunch of the other ones but the one that has worked best for my 6950 is GUIminer w/ these settings:
New Miner -> OpenCL -> parameters: -v -w128 f1

My card cant be unlocked and I have the core OC'd to 890, default voltage. RAM is at 150mhz.

It produces around 363mh/sec

Ive tried phoenix, w/ the different kernels but it gets nowhere near that many mh/s on my card.

Im running the 11.7 preview drivers for now.

Please post any other miners I should try and the parameters.
Thanks

im running the same miner and settings when im not using my pc, when using it i use phoenix with a aggression=6 for around 320 Mhs while watching videos.  I have my sapphire OC'd to 900 and ram at default and get 365mhs (with the miner you have listed above, plus my backup pool settings.) and using 11.6 drivers

I think the only way you can get higher is to use the shader unlock mod which my non-reference sapphire can't use.  I have read some of these 6950's will OC to 1000mhz but to me doesnt seem like the risk is worth the reward to OC that much.

What risk? If you can keep the card cool enough, and it runs stable, what am I missing?

Exactly, Id rather only OC it 12.5% and have it run nice and cool than push the card to its limit, make it run alot hotter and possably shorten the life span for just a couple more mhs.

Therefore the reward of maybe another 10-15 mhs, to me isn't worth the risk of cutting months or years off the lifespan of the card.

If you have to balance your power consumption...these cards could potentially eat way more power when starting to modify the voltage than whats worth in mh/s output.


Also, thanks guys...so Im runnin a pretty good hashrate for my card clock and configuration?
