Inconsistent mining hashrate

Hey All
I just built myself a miner with 5 x 580 amd cards they hash at 30mhs each for a few rounds then drop to 15mhs then back up to 30. On my pool stats it shows avg hashrate at 100mhs Has anyone else experienced this? ive attached a photo

    @bigrigman , yep. I see similar behavior. One of my four gpu will drop mh/s rates after several hours of mining at good rates. My fix is reboot and start over. Feels stupid to have that be an operational recovery mode.

    change your pool or Internet conecction. Your ping is too high.

    maybe the overclock and the power

    I tried some more easy things. No joy, but I noticed some odd behaviors, maybe @bigrigman sees those as well. I tried changing mainboard BIOS settings -> disable on-board video. Plugged the display into gpu0 and mined for a while. The drop off problem happened much, much faster. So, I revert from that.

    One other funny thing. Claymore miner has suggested environment variables that are set at the top of "start_only_eth.bat". In my setup, I can mine at faster hashrate for longer time without those env vars being set. When I set those vars, I can only mine for a couple hours before one or more cards start to drop in performance. Without vars set, I can mine 8-10 hours before the drop off.

    @bigrigman , sorry I don't mean to hijack your thread. I made a tweak to all cards VBIOS. Now I do not see the hashrate drop off after mining like before, all 4 gpu stay at ~30-31 mh/s. Trick was flashing each card's gpu freq, mem freq, and mem power to specific values, and not the same values for each card. Good luck.
