Update with Pictures!
Ok finally settled in and made a few last changes today - but I can't think of anything else to do with this miner other than automate a restart script on power loss. ( which I have not clue where to start)
upgraded to CGMINER 2.3.1
still using xbuntu 11.04 and SDK 2.4
I switched/replaced all 3 cards to 5870s
replaced the motherboard with a 890FXA-GD70
Increased ram to 4 GB
Downvolted all cards to 1.000-1.050
Downclocked core memory to ~800/150
getting ~1.15 GH/s @ 500 Watts
Fan noise significantly reduced
So on to my second miner, have a 5770 @ rma and a 5830 coming from newegg, but I think I really need to stick with 5870s or 5970s if I can find them.
PLEASE COMMENT / ADVICE on anything I am doing wrong in your opinion.
THANK you for your time and consideration.http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/2205/1203160002.jpg
