I have to played with flags to find a good balance between hashrate and desktop lag.

my flags are: -aggression=4 -gpugrid=480 -gputhreads=960

You can set aggresion higher, I think default is 6.

Ok experimented with affinity.  Oddly enough it does not change the hashrate of AMD cards.  It did however, drop my Nvidia's from 130MH or so to 6MH when I set affinity to one core.  No idea why.

nVidia cards are more CPU-heavy

Those flags are for cuda (nvidia only).

In that chart you can see flags for all cards.

There's one for 2x GTX 580s so messed with that.  Originally used an old thread suggesting a 580 profile and it had worked just fine giving me ~130-140MH/sec.

Original was:  -gpu=0 (used -gpu=1 for my other 580 to make it work) poclbm VECTORS
New is: -gpu=0 -gpugrid=128 -gputhreads=1024
Now up to ~155MH/sec.  Cool Smiley

Are you gonna use those 580's for mining only and 24/7?
it is a waste of electricity, you would do better selling them and buying hd 58xx or 5970 Tongue

No the 580s are for gaming, folding, video work and daily use.

Nonetheless, I doubt mining is even profitable, for the electricity cost of leaving them on.

Hmm.

One 580 is giving me atm, 150MH/sec
Let's say 300w draw for card.  That's 7.2 KWH/day or 216 KWH per month x $0.10 here or $21.60 a month.
If one 5970 generates roughly BTC 0.48 a day for ~720MH/sec, let's just divide by 5, so that'd be roughly BTC 0.096 a day x 30 days (keeping it simple here) = BTC 2.88 per month.  2.88 x (we'll say $5) = $14.40  

...   Angry

DARN IT.  
To be honest I'd sell the card and go AMD if their drivers weren't garbage worked ok.  Suppose I could wait for Kepler or sell it for another 5970 or perhaps 7990 if I wait.

Wait for Kepler if I was in your position. I have a feeling they are going to rock this time for mining with the GTX780 having 2304 shaders !

Imagine what the GTX790 will do with 2304 SP * 2 = 4608 shader processors ! I think if their arch did not suck at integer performance then it will surely beat that 7990.

And you are 100% right, AMD drivers always will and always have sucked really hard. I hate AMD with a passion for that fact alone. Nvidia is not that much better and they still have shitty drivers ( but much better than AMD ), pity the GTX580 sucks compared to a 5870 but I think Kepler will change that Wink

Both require end-user expertise to work properly. I'm not sure that qualifies them as "sucking", more like "not user-friendly". Nonetheless, I still miss the days of 3DFX.

Re: Drivers... True.  You'd think it's just plug-and-play and usually it is.  I think I was just aggrivated moreso by the fact that two of my cards are indeed unstable pieces of crap and are going to RMA-land rather than the drivers themselves being horrid (though I've had much better luck with Nvidia FWIW). 

True - was thinking the same with regards to Kepler.  I mean, I could sell one of the cards now and maybe buy one more 5970 but A. I don't know what the 7990 will do yet.  B. how much it'd cost.  and C. Kepler may very well beat or at least make Nvidia slightly more efficient to do mining with.

It's moot atm as right now I have roughly an equal # of cards to rigs needed (albeit not the proper cooling for every system).  To move more offsite I'd need another rig.  At least I know power and cooling there though is not an issue.  Dissapating 2+ KW just fine so far.

Hi! I havent uploaded any pictures here yet. A while ago i stopped mining because of the noise and heat issues. I had to solve this issue. This is how i solved it Cheesy

http://irobin.se/arkiv/case1.JPG

Yes so i bought a box, and isolated it and added ventilation. The Cold air intake is at the bottom, and goes up on the opposite side from the warm air outtake. I have added a  I have another plate over so the the fans sucks the warm air into the little space then out of the box.

So atm the box is outside and i have one rig doing some mining :-)

I will upload more pictures tonight(at work at the moment).

Regards
Robin

LMAO You're not the only one.  It creeped me out for a while.  Now I'm wondering if I could slip a couple rigs into the morgue at my hospital.  On second thought I don't think I would ever want to have to tinker with them there  Shocked
