Hey guys, I have a weird issue with my 7950s.

They worked fine at 620 KH/s, but they hanged twice during last 2 days (it seems like machine kept mining actually, but I could not ssh into it anymore or access the web interface).

After today's hang 2 cards did not work (cgminer showed 511 C temp, 0 fan, no hashrate but no dead/sick either). I tried rebooting a few times but same story (cgminer works, but 2 cards showing that weird details).
I disconnected 2 cards but cgminer wouldn't start then, it seems the driver did not detect any cards or there was some error. After that I disconnected one more, that worked, then I connected back 1, it worked now (wtf?), then I connected all 4 cards and they all work now.

I was mining Vertcoin (using vertminer) while this happened, but I don't think it could have anything to do with it. I was on BAMT 1.3.

However now 2 cards have a hashrate of 775 KH/s, while the other two have same as before (620 KH/s).

Card: Sapphire 7950 with Boost
Mem clock: 1250
Engine clock: 1010
Undervolted @ 1.081 V

I have 2 7950 cards, actually3 but only 2 in this rig while waiting for an extra riser
anyway 1 got 630kh/s
while the other start also at 630kh/s
but then quickly goes down to 550KH/s or something

to 1 I have a monitor connected, to the other nothing
maybe because there is no monitor attached speed goes down?

I am waiting for some dummy plugs to arrive to test it

any way to see which gpu0 and gpu1 is which card?

Not easily, but you can put fan speed to 100% for one card and see which one it is.

It is not related to plugs, I never needed plugs on these cards before.

I don't think it's the same issue that we have.. How much lower is your hash on the other card?

I have to say Sapphire 7950 seem to be the worst cards that money can buy :-/ Just so unreliable!

good one is 630 kh/s
and bad one goes quickly down to around 550 kh/s
will try some more things and otherwise I think I will open my own topic
anyway if I will find the solution I let you know
