Hi everyone,

I'm looking to see what my optimal settings for mining are and if I'm doing this right.

I have a Sapphire 5850, flashed with the Unlocked ASUS Bios

Overclocked to 915Mhz.

I am using GUIMiner v 2011-05-21, and have a DeepBit account with Proportional set as my default.

I am getting around 342 Mhash/s and it says after an hour that I have 310 shares in my account.

Is everything going as it should, Or should I switch to Pay Per share?

Thanks

Everything looks good to me, and you're getting a great hash rate from that card

what is your gpu memory clocked at?

My GPU mem is clocked at 1000Mhz (stock)

I've dropped my core clock to 900Mhz to just compensate for power usage, I had to drop my vcore down.

900/1000 @ 1.149v @ 327 Mhash/s

if you're using 5850 xtreme, and you have enough cooling, you should be able to get 400 MH/s, stable. core @ 1020, mem @ 225, 1.2 v.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I'm not using the extreme, my GPU is from one of the first batches when the 5850 released, so it's a full reference model v1 I guess.

I have tried 1.225v max is 990Mhz core

Oh and what would I benefit from in the deepbit pool:

Proportional or Pay Per Share? up to 630 shares now.

proportional is the best, because pay per share has a 10% fee. also, it's better to join a pool with 0% fee, so you get higher earnings Wink

That's a great oc. I'm not looking to oc further since I don't want to bring up power consumption. I have already altered a state on my cpu so it with little to none power while mining.

What pool would you recommend then that has a good payout?

The largest pool with 0% fee is btcguild ( http://www.btcguild.com/ ). it's smaller than deepbit, so you're going to get more variance, but in the end, you'll make more money.

I'll give it a try and see how it goes for me.
