At that speed you will be lucky to mine 0.2LTC/day. Also difficulty increases 20% in about 30 min
I wish I can use my rig at home... but I donated that to my dad to play Flight Simulator when I left... that's got a 6950 in it and more fans than Justin Bieber


Maybe when i move to HK in half a year or so I'll build a rig just for mining

Could you teach your dad how to pause mining when he wants to play games? 6950 would do well for you

You may have been mining nothing. What messages did you see? If it's working, you should see a khash number on the bottom right of guiminer.
If you see khash, then it's mining, but you may be getting errors. Post a screenshot of the console tab and summary tab.

What does your summary look like? You should have a speed and some numbers in accepted and stale shares.

yeah i have been farming for 3 days. my card is at 99%, 73degrees, and 45% fan speed

It's mining, but all your shares are stale, therefore, invalid.
Let's see your default tab.
Also, what kind of GPU are you running?

Coinotron LTC should be Port 3334, and try setting intensity to 18, to see if you can squeeze out more khash

I'm using a 7870, as well. I have it clocked 700/1400 and getting 300khash

At your rate, within 1 min or so.

EDIT: Great! FYI: On the Coinotron site, the confirmed rewards column is where you'll fine the amount of LTC you've accumulated. Every accepted share increments that number.

EDIT2: You're mining, so your temp should be up. Your fans will probably get clogged with dust quicker, and you'll use more electricity, but there isn't any danger to your equipment. Unless, you're running a crazy overclock.

So it's not damaging to my gpu? I just cleaned out my set up today especially my gpu it was dusty AF

edit: should i mine in intervals such as mine for 6 hours then let it rest for like 2 hours then mine another 6? i feel like this is stressing the gpu

As long as it's running within normal operating temp, then it won't damage the card. I'm just gonna let mine run as long as I'm not doing anything on my system. My temp is 69c. The auto fan is running at 50% speed. It could run cooler, but it seems satisfied with this temp.

The only thing I noticed while mining extended periods of time was that occasionally my GPU usage would start to drop on its own and the fan speed would decrease, so id be sitting at my desk studying etc and hear my fan slow down then watched the GPU usage hover around 65% then drop all the way to 0 then pop back up to about 60, watched it for about 10 minutes where it never got back up on its own to 100% which seemed somewhat disconcerning?

With Windows, I think it's good to restart your PC once or twice a day when mining. I noticed after a day of mining, my system would be laggy while trying to do normal things like browsing the internet. I have a feeling that my GPU is throwing too many hardware errors, and just gets corrupted, at some point. I've tried adjusting some settings, but hw errors show up, eventually. GUIminer doesn't show the HW stat, but I saw it when I was just running cgminer from the command line.

You could lower the intensity if you want to use it while mining

So just for clarifications:

Litecoin utilizes both CPU and GPU? or is GPU mining still dominant?

I have 2 rigs at home
1. An AMD with a 7850
2. An Intel with a 660TI

The AMD rig belongs to my brother so I'd prefer to use my Intel rig assuming CPU mining is worth while. Or is there is some way to link both rigs to 1 account so I could potentially alternate between teh two?

You can mine from both at the same time if u want to. You just link the mining with an account and password to the host site.
