Setup guide for 6990 cards!! Windows 7 x64
Ok guys, just spent a little time trying to find the best values for my 6990 - I have had many differing hash rates dependant on settins, ad on this card it can go from 290mh/s to what im at now 400mh/s
To start with i downloaded the newest Phoenix miner: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6458.0
I then extracted straight to my c:\ drive with folder phoenix : c:\phoenix
Once the files are extracted i got to work with the settings, firing straight up i got a lowly 300mh/s but trawled through this thread, made various changes and got myself up!
I decided to create a .bat file so i could run it from the desktop - starting both cores of the 6990 at the same time.How to Create a .bat file
Right click on your desktop and create a new txt document - i.e notepad
Call it whatever you want, you need to now (if you already dont have the setting enabled) make sure the file type is displayed for the document so you can modify it.
If you need to enable that simply go to folder options and untick "hide known filetypes"
rename the ".txt" document to ".bat"
Right click the now .bat file and select edit, it will look just like a notepad file, now you can start typing.
Here is what mine looks like - you can copy and paste this into it, but remeber to put your settings in start /DC:\phoenix phoenix.exe -u http://yourwalletaddress:email@example.com:8337 -k poclbm DEVICE=0 VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP AGGRESSION=11 WORKSIZE=128
start /DC:\phoenix phoenix.exe -u http://yourwalletaddress:firstname.lastname@example.org:8337 -k poclbm DEVICE=1 VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP AGGRESSION=11 WORKSIZE=128
The above settings will get you mining on lukejrs pool Eligius @ around 400mh/s with 925 core on the graphics card.
Save the .bat file and run it from the desktop
Just thought it might help some newbie miners (like me) without taking up loads of time.Final Thoughts
My main gains came from going from BFI_INT* to just BFI_INT without the "*" and setting my worksize to 128 - the aggression always helps too
Donations welcome if this helped even just a little.15sE1b7Y6rLMBwwyBLGwSBTQzvB8csUfrX
