Can anyone shed light onto why I get 38 mhash more per 7970 running on a Gigabyte MoBo (GA-990FXA-UD7) than I do on a MSI 890FXA-GD70.

Here's the Hardware -
  4x Saphire 7970 - Mem 685 - Core 1200
  AMD Sempron 145
  2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066
  Barracuda SATA 60 Gig Drive
and the Software (Not that this should have an impact)
  Windows 7
  Diablo Miner
  MSI Afterburner
I get 708 mhash per 7970 after 24 hours on the GA-990FXA-UD7
I get 670 mhash per 7970 after 24 hours on the MSI 890FXA-GD70

This accounts 154 mhash loss for the rig if I use the MSI 890FXA-GD70 Mobo.

I'm building a new rig and plan on purchasing a less expense Mobo this time around.
I heard the MSI mATX h61-p21 @ $58 bucks is a good 4x Mobo. That's $200 less than the Gigabyte but i'm afraid it'll have the same performance issue that I'm experiencing with the MSI 890FXA-GD70. I'd much rather spend the extra $200 and have 154 mhash better performance.

The question is should I expect different Mobo's to have different performance? If so what Motherboards perform the best?

Thanks for your help guys!

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

I wonder if it's caused by the same issue I had when I swapped 5970s in a computer and lost a good chunk of my hashing power.  My last post in this thread points to the info that fixed my issue.

Good luck!
