Just woundering what software do you guys use for ati cards?
At the moment i'm using GUIMiner in opencl mode with good results, but it makes one of my cores locked at full usage all the time.
So i was woundering if there is any miner you would consider the best all around over opencl?

What mining software for ati cards do you use?

11.8 driver.

I've tried the phoenix, I receive 25 mhash/s more with opencl.

I've read from people that it is a SDK bug that causes this. If you use 11.7-11.8 driver with the latest GUIMiner with opencl, there is an major increase of mhash/s.

If I drop to 11.6 Catalyst drivers will it reduce my MHash/s? 

I have 11.8 Catalyst drivers and get good MHash/s but one core is locked full too.

Also what fan control are you guys using?  With my XFX 6870, if I leave fan control on auto, it will stay at 35% fan and let the temp get up to 84 deg C, so I manually set it at 50% to drop the temps to about 78 deg C.  What are reasonable maximum temps for 24/7 operation, and will I wear out the fans at a 50% speed 24/7?

I'm getting a little more mh/s with that but now its maxing out two cpu cores instead of one   :-(

Also what fan control are you guys using?  With my XFX 6870, if I leave fan control on auto, it will stay at 35% fan and let the temp get up to 84 deg C, so I manually set it at 50% to drop the temps to about 78 deg C.  What are reasonable maximum temps for 24/7 operation, and will I wear out the fans at a 50% speed 24/7?

I've got it set to auto, which keeps it at around 80% speed. I would doubht they would wear out from being on 24/7, and if they ever did you could just get a replacement cooler for pretty cheap.

11.8 and 11.7 drivers are bugged, they will make the miner use a cpu core

install 11.6 and ta dah problem solved, 0% cpu use or so.

Ah i see, okay thankyou i will try that driver and report back.

Also i just tested cgminer some more, Okay you are right about this being much better. Big thankyou for the suggestion.

I absolutely love how it auto clocks my card if it gets too hot or its not working hard enough, and scales with what im doing, with guiminer i would have to stop it and change the -f setting so it didnt steal all my cycles in a game, but this does it all automatically, thats fantastic.
I can also underclock my ram much further than afterburner will allow me so my temps are much lower too.

im still getting 2 cores being used fully with 11.6 drivers.
Though only with crossfire mode turned on, if it turn it off the cpu usage drops a ton but then it only detects one gpu and not both?
