Tried with both script and sha - however cgminer  doesnt seem to go above 64% gpu load. high intensity etc can "crash" or slow down pc but load is still pretty low.


for example:
cgminer -o stratum+tcp://x:3334 -u x.1 -p x -k poclbm -I 6 -w 256

it feels like wasting  third of potential power.

I use intensity 13 on computers I use daily and 20 on mining only rigs.

sha256 intensity range is -10 to 14

scrypt intensity range is 0 to 20

For sha256, try intensity 10. For scrypt, try intensity 13. These should put GPU load around 100% but still allow you to use the computer to continue tweaking. Intensity 6 is going to result in a low hashrate regardless of algorithm.

Increase your power rating and intensity?

What is your model of the GPU? Intensity 6 seems to be really low...

What is your model of your GPU? Sometimes power supply also play important role on GPU stability...

increase your intensity, change the thread and you should be good..

I have the same thing, its weird.   I would change settings but the hash rate only seems to go down.  higher intensity or clocks is less work, 7950 Im on with I:13

I will try threads and powertune and report back if I find anything
