I was curios if this is the “norm”?
Under the same stock settings of 1080TI fan speed @ 80%, case fans at max 2000 RPM. When mining ETH it goes to max 45 ºC, when mining ZEC it goes to max 60 ºC, i.e. ZEC is more GPU intensive somehow, even-though they both utilize 100% of the cards computational resources.
When mining ZEC with EWBF miner (no clock, no power limit) the 1080 TI GPU gets to 60 ºC (131 ºF)
When mining ETH with Claymore miner (no clock, no power limit) the 1080 TI GPU gets to 45 ºC (113 ºF)
Afterburner shows 100% usage on both.
So how come the ZEC mining generated 100% usage is more intensive on the GPU, when compared to again 100% utilized GPU with claymore (ETH).
I also saw ppl having issues with risers and ZEC, while the same rig - digs fine other coins. Are those related?
