Hello all,
My mining rig has 3x Sapphire 7950's, my OS is Xubuntu 12.10 and I'm using cgminer. All of the GPUs are undervolted to 1081 mV.
I'm having a strange problem: The 2nd GPU, which is between the other two, has a significant lower hash rate than the others!

Code:
cgminer version 3.7.2 - Started: [2014-02-09 12:31:05]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My cgminer settings are
Code:
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.fast-pool.com:3002 -u bomberb17.1 -p 1 -I 20 --thread-concurrency 24000 --gpu-engine 1050 --gpu-memclock 1500  --worksize 256 -g 1 --lookup-gap 2

I tried to change its clock settings from within cgminer, but I see that it is clocked lower than the other 2!
So when I hit 'G' for [G]PU management I get
Code:
GPU 0: 603.2 / 595.2 Kh/s | A:20  R:1  HW:0  U:0.83/m  I:20

I then try to change its clock settings, it changes to 1050/1500 for a few seconds then it goes back to 850/1250!
Any ideas to solve this???

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

I also noticed that if I restart cgminer, then the clock remains to that set for all cards, but after a few minutes it drops itself to 850/1250 for GPU1.
