Hi, I'm brand new to BitCoin so please excuse idiotic things I might say...

I'm running GUIMiner on my 6950 (at 307.7 Mhash/s) but this is noisy, taxes my card and bumps its temperature up into the 70's. I don't want to die in a towering inferno and I'd like to be able to work without my PC sounding like a small aircraft taking off. Can GUIMiner throttle the amount of GPU power it uses?

Secondly, I've been mining for little while and GUIMiner says "90 (90)" under the "Accepted" part of the summary. I assume this means I've solved 90 blocks? If this is the case should my balance still be 0.00 in the Bitcoin client?

Thanks for reading.

You might underclock your graphics memory. It isn't used (significantly) by mining and underclocking has been reported to actually increase total hashrate.

Are you mining in a pool? The numbers refer to shares, not blocks. The number of shares you produce is approximately proportional to the amount of hashes you contribute to solving a block, so mining pools pay you based on shares. I may be wrong, but I think shares are simply blocks with an artificially low difficulty. The number in parentheses is, I think, the number of shares you have produced in the last hour.

Thanks for replying. I am mining solo at the moment until I can figure out how pools work. I assume that I contribute shares to the pool then the total coins generated get divided based on those shares minus an operator fee?

Is there any correlation between the number of shares shown and the number of coins created in solo mining?

Exactly.

I'm not sure what that number represents when you mine solo. However, the average time on the current difficulty required to create a block with 300 MH/s is about 26 days.
