    These questions are for the pro miners out there, please help me...!!

    I have been working on mining since Jan1st 2015, and I have been addicted to this ever since, I'm not the fastest learner, but I can't stop doing this. I've even considered puttting up a solar power tower just to build more rigs because once my wife sees the electric bill, i'll be kicked to the double yellow lines in the street. I went from just trying cpuminer on a laptop (20kh/s) and from there, have built two rigs that get about 25 - 30Mh/s for x11. I ordered 4 more mobos, and cards. I'm running ubuntu from the tutorial: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2243387
    Rig:
    ASRock BTC (6-pci slots) - see pics
    Pentium dual core
    Using and 4 AMD 7970s and 2 AMD 7950s
    Bridged Gold Power supply
    8mb ram


    My question is, has anyone ran this version of Sigminer: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=616786.220
    I believe it can only be ran on windows, but they state you can achieve much better speed. I really didn't want to install windows, because everytime I tried it, I could never get any version of Sgminer to work. Can someone tell me how to run Sgminer on windows? Or am I already running the best Sgminer version on Ubuntu? (see my rig stats). Also, is there anything obviously wrong with the stats? I don't understand what all of them mean.
    Please give me your opinions, and also any pool advice/recommendations!!
    Thank you for any help! DARKCOIN FOREVER>>!

    I'm running the same sgminer as you on PIMP with 2 280x cards using 14.6 drivers. I was getting about 4.6Mh/s until I recently found wolf's modified bin.

    I'm also running sgminer on win7 on my 7950. I was getting about 3.8Mh/s until switching to wolf's bin. Now I'm getting 5.4Mh/s! I've run a few different versions of sgminer miner on windows though. I don't remember which version, but I only had problems with one and I think that was due to the GPU driver I was using.

    I did a complete overhaul and used wolf's bins, switched to win7, and am also running at average, 5.4Mh/s also! I spent so much time with ubuntu, and I just couldn't afford the time to set it up, I have two systems running right now at 45Mh/s, but still not really making anything lol....
