I have an R9 290X GPU. When I used to mine with the original X11 miner (not optimized) all I could hear was my gpu's fan.
But now when I mine with the optimized X11 miner (X11mod) my GPU makes a fast ticking sound.

Is this normal? It seems like it isn't meant to happen.

Also, does anyone have the download link for the old X11 miner?


Edit: I just discovered that my GPU runs cgminer fine when mining with scrypt.

Edit: Read my last post!!

Is this normal? It seems like it isn't meant to happen.

Also, does anyone have the download link for the old X11 miner?

Wait, wait, wait. The best available X11 kernels are already fuck slow - and you want to go get a SLOWER one?

Well, the ticking sounds like a spark or something. So I don't feel comfortable knowing that my GPU may be getting destroyed.

It's more than likely the fan - do you have it on auto-fan?

Nope, do I add --auto-fan to the .bat file?

Should I get older catalyst drivers?

Edit: Holy Shit my fan is loud!

No; if it's truly something in the GPU ticking, you need to find out what it is, and if it's something bad, take it back. You don't keep mining with it.

I mean, I abuse the shit out of my 290X, having it mine at 1100/1600 at 9.6MH/s on a kernel I rewrote (hotter, by a little, too) - and I STILL wouldn't fuck with a GPU I think might be sparking.

Aww man, it broke 5 months ago. (Vanity address miner)
I took it back and they "fixed" it 5 weeks later. But it still didn't work. After 5 minutes of playing a game the screen went corrupted. So I took it back again and then they really fixed it. (2 months later)
BTW the ticking happened on my GPU before it broke. But not on the old version of SGminer.

I have an R9 290X GPU. When I used to mine with the original X11 miner (not optimized) all I could hear was my gpu's fan.
But now when I mine with the optimized X11 miner (X11mod) my GPU makes a fast ticking sound.

Is this normal? It seems like it isn't meant to happen.

Also, does anyone have the download link for the old X11 miner?

Wait, wait, wait. The best available X11 kernels are already fuck slow - and you want to go get a SLOWER one?
Well, the ticking sounds like a spark or something. So I don't feel comfortable knowing that my GPU may be getting destroyed.

It's more than likely the fan - do you have it on auto-fan?
Nope, do I add --auto-fan to the .bat file?

Should I get older catalyst drivers?

No; if it's truly something in the GPU ticking, you need to find out what it is, and if it's something bad, take it back. You don't keep mining with it.

I mean, I abuse the shit out of my 290X, having it mine at 1100/1600 at 9.6MH/s on a kernel I rewrote (hotter, by a little, too) - and I STILL wouldn't fuck with a GPU I think might be sparking.
Aww man, it broke 5 months ago. (Vanity address miner)
I took it back and the "fixed" it 5 weeks later. But it still didn't work. After 5 minutes of playing a game the screen went corrupted. So I took it back again and then they really fixed it. (2 months later)
BTW the ticking happened on my GPU before it broke. But not on the old version of SGminer.

Yeah - not fixed. Send it in for RMA, they usually give you a new one back.

They don't (for me at least). I'm pretty sure they just repair it.
What does your .bat file look like? Mine doesn't have any settings in it.

Code:
sgminer -k x11mod -I 18 -o stratum+tcp://pool -u user -p pass --auto-fan

When I use my R9 for games it's fine. Even rendering stuff in blender. I wonder why mining is such a problem.

btw, is your gpu switch on quiet mode or uber?

Uber - I use a conf file, setting worksize and intensity, fan speed, clocks, etc.

I have an R9 290X GPU. When I used to mine with the original X11 miner (not optimized) all I could hear was my gpu's fan.
But now when I mine with the optimized X11 miner (X11mod) my GPU makes a fast ticking sound.

Is this normal? It seems like it isn't meant to happen.

Also, does anyone have the download link for the old X11 miner?

Slow down your fan speed to see if the problem comes from it. If it is then you can either try to oil it, remove it or replace it...

I'm pretty sure it's not the fan. The ticking sound is at the same interval no matter the speed of the fan.
Plus, when I am rendering an animation or something in blender, when my gpu's fan speed up a lot it it doesn't make the ticking sound. The sound appears right when I start the miner (after it has loaded) and stopps right when I close the miner. I'll test scrypt and sha256 to see if the problem happens with those algorithms.

I have an R9 290X GPU. When I used to mine with the original X11 miner (not optimized) all I could hear was my gpu's fan.
But now when I mine with the optimized X11 miner (X11mod) my GPU makes a fast ticking sound.

Is this normal? It seems like it isn't meant to happen.

Also, does anyone have the download link for the old X11 miner?

Wait, wait, wait. The best available X11 kernels are already fuck slow - and you want to go get a SLOWER one?
Well, the ticking sounds like a spark or something. So I don't feel comfortable knowing that my GPU may be getting destroyed.

It's more than likely the fan - do you have it on auto-fan?
Nope, do I add --auto-fan to the .bat file?

Should I get older catalyst drivers?

No; if it's truly something in the GPU ticking, you need to find out what it is, and if it's something bad, take it back. You don't keep mining with it.

I mean, I abuse the shit out of my 290X, having it mine at 1100/1600 at 9.6MH/s on a kernel I rewrote (hotter, by a little, too) - and I STILL wouldn't fuck with a GPU I think might be sparking.
Aww man, it broke 5 months ago. (Vanity address miner)
I took it back and the "fixed" it 5 weeks later. But it still didn't work. After 5 minutes of playing a game the screen went corrupted. So I took it back again and then they really fixed it. (2 months later)
BTW the ticking happened on my GPU before it broke. But not on the old version of SGminer.

Yeah - not fixed. Send it in for RMA, they usually give you a new one back.
They don't (for me at least). I'm pretty sure they just repair it.
What does your .bat file look like? Mine doesn't have any settings in it.

Code:
sgminer -k x11mod -I 18 -o stratum+tcp://pool -u user -p pass --auto-fan

When I use my R9 for games it's fine. Even rendering stuff in blender. I wonder why mining is such a problem.

btw, is your gpu switch on quiet mode or uber?

Uber - I use a conf file, setting worksize and intensity, fan speed, clocks, etc.
Do you mind sharing it?

It's on a different machine, and for a different kernel...

Sometimes the casing of the 'relays' (? or some other component) can get lose due to previous heat. Then when the relays (or whatever they are) get used again they can make a kinda ticking noise.  It's quite faint though. If it's louder and your really think it's sparking then you have a problem.

I've had it on my cards after mining scrypt for a long time. The cards I noticed it on are 280x toxics. The cards continue to mine to this day though.

Yeah, me either.  It's just bad news waiting to happen.

That is just weird, did you try underclock and undervolt to see if it helps?

I don't really know how to do that. Actually, I think I can do it with Catalyst Control Center.
I'll do it when I get home.
