Aren't we all interested in something better than CCC "auto-tune" specific for stable mining ?

I know it can be done manually but some people here have dozens of GPUs of variable model, brands and bins.

The thing is, when a GPU run unstable the computer can freeze, and waiting for it rebooting take t0o much time.
A GPU can become unstable and freeze the OS after hours or days of work and, guess what, that take t0o much time !

These work conditions are not humane, programmers, help us out !

I do not expect it to be perfectly reliable, as long as it can help find the average stability threshold automaticly.  (I'd downclock by 30-50 mhz and be done with it)

Features I'd like to see :
  Start overclock at X
  Time vs fine tuning trade-off
  Continue on reboot (obviously)
  Learn from previous profile, (same model)
  Down voltage mode : find lowest voltage at a given speed.

It could be mining while it's stability tested and on reboot show dialog : "your computer rebooted unexpectedly, would you like to downclock your gpu by 5 / 10mhz / NO  " (one GPU per machine for simplicity)

I think a USB bootable Linux version would be preferable over a windows version.

Realizable ? / time frame ? / bounty size ?  

Thanks for your input.

Running the system on max overclock which stock voltage can handle is the most efficient way anyway so why should anyone care?

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

... about finding "max overclock" ... something about stability.

Thanks for your input.

Using what I already have setup in BAMT, this is probably about a day's work.  At current prices, bounty of 75 BTC and I'll be happy to provide it.
