Hey guys, in my opinion it´s time to think about minig scrypt with nvidia, because cgminer stops developing for scrypt, the best version for scrypt is 3.7.2 but cudaminer is developing again and in the last month the hashrate goes up at 30%, without changing Hardware, only update cudaminer and cuda from 5.0 to 5.5 so nvidia is no more slower than ATI and when you`re thinking about new hardware you have to think about the future. Cuda 6.0 schould come out soon and I think that should give an new increase in hashingspeed so it may possible that nvidia may be the better choice for mining scrypt in the future,
OK finally I received PCI-e riser cables (16x - 16x unpowerd) and there's a little problem using the riser cables now. When I connect the graphics cards with riser cables my rig doesn't boot it doesn't even show a boot screen. There is power and I can see the fans moving but after a few seconds power is off then tries to start again or stops completely. The same happens when I use only 1 riser cable to get 1 card out of the casing.
currently I have 1 R9 270x and 1 R9 280x and 1kW power supply. The riser cable is 24cm long.
Maybe the problem can be solved with powered riser cables?
