I know, I know… Generally looked upon as a foolish idea. I just had to see if anyone else is turning their laptop into a mining rig to supplement their desktop for some extra hashing power.
I’m mining on a Razer Blade 14" gaming laptop with an all aluminum chassis. It’s sitting on top of a good USB cooling pad. It has excellent heat distribution and typically runs far hotter while gaming for hours at a time.
At -t 6 I get close to 20 Sol/s and at -t 2 I’m getting around 9-10 Sol/s. Temps were stable at 78-80 degrees C with 6 threads running and 66-74 degrees C at 2 threads running. I’ve had this thing going for quite some time now at 2 threads with no issues, and it’s minimally warm to the touch - temp still ranging high 60’s to low 70’s.
Given one could pay close to $300 for 6 Sol/s of cloud mining through genesis, how bad of an idea could this be? Any thoughts/input? Would like to know if anyone thinks I may burn my laptop out going at this sustained clip. Admittedly it could be a stupid idea.
