Thanks, same to you too. I've been looking at local classifieds sites but so far nothing sub $499. In my opinion paying $500 for this card given today's difficulty level is not worth it. Ideally I think $300 is a fair price to pay for a lightly used card, but doubt I'll find one for that price anytime soon. The longer it takes me to find a good deal the less worthwhile it will become due to increasing difficulty (of mining).

Just wanted to give a quick update for everyone, and see what kind of improvements the 58xx series cards have had with the new BFI_INT support on the mining side. I've actually gotten some pretty surprising results with this config:

1 x XFX 5830 HD 1GB
Windows 7 64 bit
Catalyst 10.7 and SDK 2.1
Currently clocked at 970MHz Core, 390MHz Memory
Running Phoenix Miner with askrate=10 -k poclbm VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP AGGRESSION=7 DEVICE=1
Temps ~ 70 - 74°C w/fans at 90%
~ 288 - 290 MHash/sec while playing music in iTunes and posting this in Firefox with 3 tabs open

I'm wondering what the 5850 and 5870 look like with the new miners to do a bit of a cost/benefit analysis...the 5830 set me back a whopping $109, and that was brand new from Newegg. I'm sure I could have gotten a used one for half of that, and that could save me a lot of money setting up mining rigs. Power is kind of a moot point, since I pay like 4 cents a kW.

Does anyone else have some stats to post? Smiley

how did you guys set the memory clock to 300?
i've he 5850 extreme (3of them) and cant find a tool to set the 300mhz for all of them... trixx does the trick for jus one card and afterburner doesn't change the mhz below 900.
any help would be awesome...   right niw i get 275mhash, need more:-)

See this thread:

very easy to do Smiley

All my 5870s are at 300 and it saves quite a bit on power and also the cards run cooler...

Using a Sapphire 5830 with a Sapphire E-350 ITX mobo, overall system power consumption for 297-300 GHash is 220 w at 1000/300. Was getting some weird crashes when doing this while using Firefox Nightly but I switched to IE and that seems to have stopped.

I got the Sapphire 5830 running at stock voltage, 1000mhz core and 330mhz memory putting out 305Mh/s.  My 5850, also Sapphire, is putting out 355Mh/s overclocked at 910mhz core and 330mhz memory at 1.25v. 

I drink it up!

Just want to let you know the results of my optimization:

4x XFX 5870 1GB
LinuxCoin
Clocks: 900 / 300, standard voltage (AMDOverdriveCtrl)

phoenix.py run from command-line (not start_mining script)
kernel: phatk (15-20 MHash/sec higher than withpoclbm)

flags:
VECTORS
AGGRESSION=9 (Increasing AGGRESSION makes system slower and does not further increase hashrate)
BFI_INT
WORKSIZE=256 (10MHash/sec higher than with 128)
DEVICE:<X>  (0,1,2 or 3)

hashrate: 395 MHash/sec
temps: 63-78 oC (lowest to highest mounted card)

Cards are on a 890FXA-GD70 with a 1200W CoolerMaster PSU in a closed HAF X at 25 oC ambient temp.

Just got my MSI 5850.
Can only OC using catalyst, up to 775. This is not much.
Tried with stock poclbm -v -w128, getting around 280.
With phoenix, same with poclbm kernel, with phatk BFI_INT VECTORS WORKSIZE=128 I am getting 295 to 300.

Anybody got any hints about this card? Because I've seen people claim getting 350+ with it...

Is it possible to OC it a bit more? Any additional tools I need on win7 and linux?
Can it be flashed to 5870 for any positive change? Are there any risks involved?

Also I've read somewhere that ATI APP SDK 2.1 gives better results than 2.4.. If so, is there place I can get that 2.1 version at?

Using 2.4 with phoenix/phatk seems to give the same results people report using 2.1. What value are you using for aggression? Up to a point (ie if GPU utilization is a lot under 100%) you can increase hash rate by increasing the aggression value.

I used aggression from 5 to 11, the best seems to be 6 since it both allows about 296 Mh/s when idle and does not make screen display slow. At 11 I get 300 but everything else is so slow it's just not worth it.

I believe MSI's overclocking tool is Afterburner. Some suggest using 256 for worksize instead of 128, not sure under what conditions that makes a difference. Not sure also about using fastloop or fastloop=false.

Here is the place to get SDK 2.1 but as I say I found it unnecessary personally:

hmm yeah I have not checked out the CD that came with the card since I had to remove the IDE cable in order to install it Smiley have to open it at another computer ...

So does anyone know about 5870 BIOS flashing? is it possible to do with MSI cards?

Im getting 445 Mh/s with 5870 @1005:340 (one needed 350, dont know why) with a very small overvolting with voltage between 1'080-1'075 (depending on the card). Using phoenix, phatk kernel with 2.4 SDK in Ubuntu. The card with higher temperature is always under 70º, usually around 60-65 (no computer case). Fans at 90%.

I have gotten some to over 460 Mh/s with more voltage and more core speed, but they crash after a while. Stable 445 Mh/s is the max Ive gotten.
