Of course I sold all my NMC right before they jump over $0.50c in value...
I got one in another rig for testing settings, its currently doing 350kh/s with settings that people are posting saying they are getting 450kh/s with!
Tried both asus cards?
Maybe the 1 card is faulty..... sounds weird tho :/
Do you delete your bin files before trying new settings?
Currently installing windows on the silverstone 1500w psu that the ebayer I sold it o said it was faulty and returned it...... hashing will b the test I suppose.
I tried everything. For example if you check below, those settings result in 700 khsec, but if the 7950 is present I encounter the bottleneck/cap.
Must be the motherboard? Glad I didn't buy another card.
I'm thinking I'll replace the board once I've mined enough for it. Just to be safe before buying another $400 gpu.
In other news I am now hashing at 700 kH/sec with my Sapphire 280X Vapor-X.
--scrypt --thread-concurrency 8193 -g 2 -I 13 -w 256 --auto-fan --gpu-fan 40-65 --temp-overheat 85 --temp-target 71 --gpu-memclock 1500 --gpu-engine 1032 --expiry 1 --scan-time 1 --queue 0 --no-submit-stale --gpu-powertune 10
Results in a hash rate of 700kH/sec~ after 15mins, with vrms at 100C, 89C & gpu at 72c. Since cgminer is not setting the vddc I've used Trixx to set vddc to 1.088.
Hopefully the Asus Top edition when I get around to getting it has better vrm cooling!
Is it too late to mine Netcoins? Which is the best pool or is everyone mining solo?
It's too difficult to be worthwhile (in my opinion), sexcoin is where I'm putting my cards.
How so? THe difficulty is set to 21.95...I've been mining LTC and I'm barely getting one LTC per day...diff is like 3000?
It all depends on what there worth when coverted to LTC or BTC, NET is still more profitable then mining ltc by itself but people think it has gone up enough now and dont think it will go up more for a few months til reward halves, its all a gamble as to what will go up BUT if cryptsy adds sxc/btc market then sxc should go up just like NET did when it was added, hence why people say that sxccoin is a better idea currently.
All depends on your views
Gumbynotalent, forgot to ask , are you running windows or LINUX?
tried both get identical results.
and yes to bin deletion.
Both cards are identical in hashing.
Tompool Multipool or else Tompool Custom Multipool).
I don't see a Netcoin option available for my custom pool?
Do you mine under windows or linux? not that the card difference will change but trying to reach 450khs from someone running linux might be harder under windows in certain circumstances.
I have 2 Asus top editions. They both run at 750kh/s each.
It is very stable with temp too. 70*C most of the time.
Gigabyte 270 OC's run like clockwork, just the Asus ones sux!
Lol fucks me then, they seem to suck
280x cards seem on par with other from a khs standpoint and there cooler works pretty well too , they are however a pretty huge card.
Picture of full stack setup.
3 x 7850's on top
1 x 280, 1 x 7970, 1 x 7950 on mid shelf
2 x 7850's on the bottom ( waiting for another riser to put the last 7850 into this )
non modular 1100w PSU FTL for cables everywhere lol
Just under 4mhs , slightly over when i add the last card.
+ 2 x R9 290's under water upstairs running around 840-860khs each.
Pretty stoked noone offered the $100 i was selling the ST1500 PSU for in its unknown state, is a very handy PSU to have lying around for this sort of stuff
I am well and truely finished buying crap now.
Man i was gunna buy 3 7850s and now car rego has come up.
God i hope sxc jumps soon so i can cash out and buy some cards before compalli runs out
A fellow sapphire 280x owner has posted an online petition, please sign it if you can. If we can get Sapphire to act in our best interests, then that is good? So far they refuse yo acknowledge there is a problem, even though fellow customers have reported the issue to them.

I've also emailed sapphire for a copy of some vbioses but nothing from them as yet.
So I guess I will stay away from Sapphire until things change?
Its interesting that others don't like Asus, I thought they were better (than MSI and others) as their QA/build quality is good?
You are on your own. Thanks for the warning.
Seriously I wasn't considering the Vapor X because of the dual 8 pins requirement. Which I don't see any psu have 8 of them.
Those cards are out for me.
I just transplanted my rig out of the case and into some baskets haha. Ill attach an image.
