Currently running a 7950 with another on the way.

Im using the following:

win7 64bit
cgminer 2.11
MSI Afterburner
AMD 13.2 beta 7

What is the best config for cgminer with these cards? I have been messing with it and when I think I have it going, the cards crash a few hours in.
I pretty much am just changing out one setting at a time since I really do not understand what each one does and how it affects hash.

What number in cgminer is the hashrate I should be looking at when trying to make it faster?

Thanks in advance

power consumption is currently not a concern

Settings on MSI:
1.3 volts
20% power
1220 core
1070 mem
80% fans

Drop the memory to 150 or 300 since it doesn't effect mining output and it will put out less heat.  Drop the core clock from 1220 to 1200 if it's crashing.  If it stays stable for a day consider toying with 1210.

80% fan is fine if you're going to only mine for the next 2 weeks, otherwise you're putting more wear resulting in buying a new fan (gonna cost more than you'll make in BTC). Run the fan at 50-60%.

I've tried a few ways to get the mem down but it will not drop past 150 lower than the core.

Uninstalled ab and tried the unofficial oc gain. Lowest I can go on mem is 625 now.

With fans at 60, temps are hitting mid 80 which will go higher once I get the other card in.

1220 core only with liquid cooling or some other stuff
lower the mem core to 200 to 400
VDDC - 1.2
