I’m new to mining, and have just built my first rig. Here are the specs:
GPU: 6x EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB SC GAMING Graphics Card
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 1000 Watt Modular Power Supply/PSU
Motherboard: MSI 270 SLI Plus
Ram: 2x 4GB Corsair DDR4 4GB Value Select
CPU: Intel Core i3 6100
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit - Version 1793 - OS Build 15063.608 (Latest)
Driver Version: 385.41 (Latest)
BIOS Version: 7A59v17 (Latest)
My main issue is the machine won’t stable when mining with EWBF 0.3.4b. It detects all the cards as normal, but would freeze when beginning to mine. I haven’t overclocked the cards in any way with MSI After Burner, as I don’t know properly what I need to do in regards to overclocking. At first I thought it could be something to do with the PSU, but I think 1000w is enough to power 6x 6GB cards? I may be wrong and need a 1300W but I don’t know. I have taken 3 of the cards off and turned off 4GB Crypto Mining via PCI in my BIOS Settings and have made AUTO -> GEN1. When I run the miner now, It keeps coming up “CUDA: Device: 0,1,2 thread excited with code: 46”. I don’t know what this means and it keeps restarting.
I am really desperate to figure this out hence why I asking the community to figure out my problem.
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
TLDR - Miner keeps crashing when mining with EWBF with GPU GTX 1060 6GB - 6 Cards.
