Those are very old cards. Modern mid-range cards are 50 times faster.

If you pay for electricity or air conditioning, you would be better off buying a brand new card. I would see if you can sell them and put the money towards a better card.

If you still want to use them, try mfakto, which can do trial factoring. I'm not sure if it still supports such old cards though.

Default Thanks for the answer

Thanks for the answer! I did what you suggested and they are all working normally, the HD4350 boards are taking 4 hours to Trial Factoring.
Although electric energy is expensive here in Brazil, the equipment was on my father-in-law's farm, where I installed solar panels and a Biodigester that turns the excrement into energy for telescopes and computers and I still get about $ 92 a month, in 3 years paid to installation. I am a zealot for prime numbers and in protecting Mother Nature.

I use some of my less efficient systems in the winter but leave them off in the summer.
