How to Configure Cgminer for Bitcoin-Litecoin (Linux)

Bitcoin mining OK, Litecoin not so much... System Freeze's

I'm not sure how much detail to include here, so here goes:
GPU: Dual 7970
Drivers: 13.1 & 2.8 APP SDK
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
I pull 1.3 Mhz easily. No OC. I'm not at home right now, so I can't pull my cgminer options (thread concurrency, shaders, etc) but I took them directly from the mining comparison website.
My temps stay around 68-72 C I use powered risers.
Problem: After starting mining I can run for 1 - 4 hours before my system will freeze. It's an incremental freeze, within a few seconds the main window locks up, seconds later I cannot change windows, then the mouse will lock up.
Then that's it. No crash, no BSOD. It just hangs. I watched my pool's site to see if it was just brain dead but still running, no dice my hash rate drops to zero.
The only way out is a hard reboot (power button).
When I mine bitcoin I don't have this experience. I understand, oranges and apples. After some digging I'm leaning on this being a mem timing issue.
Does anyone have this experience?
Edit: Cgminer settings:
--scrypt -o stratum+blah -u uname -p pass --shaders 2048 --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 2 -w 256
Edit #2:
I'm going to toss a bounty to the best answer

CGMINER download/ settings for a 7970?

Hey all! Can anyone shoot me a viable link to download cgminer? Also! When I bitcoin mine I can OC my card for greater efficiency. With litecoin mining it doesnt seem to matter what OC settings I use. Anyone OC their 7970 with GUIminer -- scrypt?

Some questions I have about mining

I intend to mine a bit on my gaming rig (my only computer, and I cant afford anything else). Not serious but maybe squeeze 10 bucks a week or something.
Q1: What config do I use?
I have a Sapphire vapor X 7970 Ghz model 11197-12-40G and I get about 400kh. I read that is way too little for my GPU, i use thing config.
set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 cgminer --scrypt -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 8192 -o stratum+tcp://pickaxe.pool.pm:3301 -u coldblade2000.coldblade2000 -p die0600g del *.bin 
Q2: How do I make sure I get a good enough amount of bitcoins without killing my poor GPU?
I really cant afford another GPU, and this is my main and only computer. If it breaks, I'm SOL and left without a computer for months. How do I make sure I never kill my GPU?
Q3: What intensity/settings do I use to run thought the night safely?
Since I can use the night as time to mine without interrupting my computer usage, I thought I might as well, but I think my current settings are way too stressing for that. What do I change?
Q4: Is my pool ok?
I have been using doge.pool.pw and I just got my first payout, 288 doge. Not as much as I hoped but I don't see any other choice. Should I change pool? To which? I tried p2p pools but I found their interface annoying.
Q5: Is it worth it?
I don't intend to do this full time, or to become rich. I might just use 10 bucks a week or months, and keep the rest for when (if) doge goes up in value by a lot. Is this really worth the hassle, electricity bill and danger?

Need help tweaking 7970s - stuck at 500-550 kh/s

I finally stopped being lazy and booted up my old 7970s that I used to mine Bitcoins. I am mining Tagcoins right now and I believe it will be up there along with LTC and BTC. It's only about a month old and is already at $1.7 and it's backed up by a multimillion dollar company. Read more here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=317408.0
Anyway a little history about these 7970s:
They were never overclocked.
They were always undervolted to 950 mv and memory underclocked to 100mhz
The temps were always below 70C with huge box fan blowing at them.
Current Settings for Scrypt Mining: undervolted to 1000 mv and stock settings for clock / mem at 925 mhz / 1375 mhz. These are Asus Reference cards (bought them at launch to mine BTC).
CGMiner Settings:
cd cgminer C:\Users\Bitcoin\Desktop\cgminer-3.7.2-windows\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://tagmining.com:3333 -u xxx.xxx-p password -o stratum+tcp://wk5.botpool.net:5933 -u xxx.xxx-p password -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 8192 --shaders 2048 --temp-overheat 80 --gpu-engine 925 --gpu-memclock 1375
I am using the following drivers:
13.11 Beta Catalyst Drivers
2.9 SDK
CGMiner 3.7.2 (latest to support scrypt mining)
Computer Specs: i7 2600k 3.4Ghz Stock MSI Big Bang Marshall 3 8GB DDR3 RAM ASUS 7970 X 4 Reference Cards 1300W CoolerMaster Gold PSU 2TB HDD 7200RPM
Any help would be appreciated!

New to mining litecoin I need some help please.

Hi,
I had been mining bitcoin as a hobby while block erupters were still profitable. Now I have an interest in litecoin I have seen a lot of posts about people optimizing their mining and cgminer in general. I have been using Guiminer scrypt and I feel like I am not squeezing as much performance as I could. I have no idea how to set up cgminer and it confuses me even more when I have to setup different model cards in a single rig. If you guys could help me out get the best performance it would be greatly appreciated.
What I currently own and the hash they are creating:
which is a total of 3.95mhs
In the pool I joined it seems that it translates to 1.2LTC estimated earnings per round.
[UPDATE] Separated by rigs
Thanks in advance.

cgminer allows you to increase another setting called the intensity. With similar settings ours run at around 660Mhash/s with the intensity at 9. These are all the cheapest GB 7970s. We do have one Sapphire Vapor-X that stays stable at 1200Mhz and hashes at about 740 with the intensity at 12, but we don't keep it that way for longevity. Initialize cgminer - bitcoin. Now it's time to start cgminer for the first time. We will Open terminal, navigate to the cgminer directory, then execute the cgminer.sh with the following command:./cgminer.sh.
