I have a dedicated Windows 7 64bit mining rig with 4 x 5870's. I would like to boot the computer and have the overclocking  / underclocking and m0mchil/poclbm miner start automatically without any input from me. Presently I have to boot into windows, setup afterburner for gpu 1, start my miner and then move my monitor cable from gpu 1 to gpu 2. Repeat x 2.

Is there a way to make the gpu's think a monitor is connected when there isn't?  With afterburner I have to switch between gpu's in settings, to allow me to underclock the memory low enough.

Any suggestions or workarounds are appreciated.

since you want unattended operation consider using Linux

among other things Linux has software solution for this problem as opposed to proposed above hardware solution (however brilliant it is)



Thanks vladimir. Is there a certain distribution I can use? Where can I learn to setup a linux mining rig? I am somewhat familiar with Ubuntu.
