Because there are so many potential configurations, I haven't added that element of setting up a rig to my litecoin rig build guides, however I would recommend using GUI Scrypt Miner and tweaking the settings to find the best and most stable hashrate for your custom rig. A high hashrate that crashes your rig at 2am will net you fewer coins than a slightly lower hashrate that will run for weeks at a time without issue. You don't want to half to 'babysit' your rig. :)

As far as overclocking your 7970 rig, start with what others are using here, and find a combination that works for you. Don't forget to take heat into consideration. A rule of thumb is to try to keep temps under 75C. Otherwise, you risk premature failure of your video cards and a net negative return on your mining investment.

 

Going to setup a mining rig. Need suggestions
