New Mining Rig(gtx 1060) OC?

Thanks my friend.

That helps greatly. Very excited to get home and try it out and see what happens.

GPU Fan should be enough I think to keep it cool. As it goes below 70 at 75% fan speed.

This will help a lot. Thanks again.

Will post back with my results after I try it out.


yeah sure feel free to post your results. im trying to reduce the Voltage right now so the 1060 work more efficient since the power costs are very high here.

i will share my results with you tomorow at the same time.

Heres my thing so far.

Some how only using around 230-240watts says my wattage meter

And it wants to do 300-310sol/s but it wont stay there. just jumps around from 290-300 but wont drop below 290 but i get spikes here and there of 300-310. just not often. If i bring my memory clock over +750 it crashes and restarts itself but i might be doing something wrong. Might be EWBF not being accurate I dont know.

However if I use my computer a bit. I get above 70 rejections. And some rejected shares.

but thats probably because I’m also using my PC.

Following this as my MSI 1060 cards will be arriving in 48 hours! Can't wait :slight_smile:
I am very keen to get these cards running as fast as they can, but with the least watts possible. Energy is pretty expensive where I am.

I really like the 1060s. For a budget card it can put out some sweet hashrate. Not sure why mine doesn't wanna do a stable 300 sol/s or higher But I'm happy if it stays above 290.

At the wall using my computer fully and my GPU going mad. I was hitting 230-270watts.
pretty sure hydro here is like .05-0.12/kw/h.

Curious to know what miners everyone is using for their NVidia cards. I like EWBF but the pool switching for the dev drives me up the wall.

Your in for a treat rufitos. I cant wait to get my 1080 this week.

I am also getting 306 Sol/s but only on one card. Once I added another GTX 1060, the new card does not go more than 230 Sol/s. Is it due to my 650W PSU?

Hmm. Do you see drops to 290? As I see more 290-298 than I doo 300+

I'm running a 750w PSU and I'm fairly confident it's not the issue.

If your running a 650w. That might play a roll. Especially if your trying to one 2 GPUs on one MOBO which is powered by a 650w psu.

Might be a good idea to upgrade your PSU a 750 is always what I start with with any computer build. If I max that out....(which is so far very rare) than I upgrade to higher(I haven't needed to yet)

Swapping places in motherboard did some improvement since my 1060 6GB is now getting more juice, reaching 300 Sol/s but the second GPU, shown in screenshot, is stuck at 1506 MHz. No matter what I do to the clock rate or memory clock, it does not goes beyond 1506. Help?

Looks like my 650W PSU is to be blamed?

Well that's progress.

Try maxing out your power limit % you have it at 87. Try putting it to 116%

And increase your fan speed. I noticed last night after testing. When my gpu was above 75. I get errors.

Being below 74c I get better hashing and better results. So I have my GPU fan set so if my gpu goes over 70-73 my fan goes to 75% If it hits 75 it goes to 80% speed.

So try maximizing the power limiter %. if that doesn't fix it you might need a new PSU.

Thank you. I'll keep you posted.

No problem. Glad I could help.
Hopefully it works.

Do let me know so I can help you diagnose the issue better and get it resolved so you can hash at full speeds. I'm pretty happy with a stable 290-299

where do you see the wattage meter?

I bought a wattage meter. They're pretty darn cheap aswell and handy

do you plan to expand with your profits? more cards?

100%. Purchasing a 1080TI this week for my buddy to up his hashpower with me. And probably x1 more in mid next month for myself.

Once I have gained an ROI for them. Plus more profit. I'll be purchasing x2 more 1080TIs for myself.

for a total of x4 1080TI which will bring my hashpower to 2970 sol/s give or take. Unless a new NVidia card comes out.

But it's all in due time as I want to ensure ROI. I know I will. But if its in less than 5 months. Than I'm happy with that.

But long story short. Yea I am planning on it 100%.

yo guys,

im not quite sure why your gpu´s doing this but i see that they are a bit hot aswell.

I got a GREAT configuration right now i changed my power limit to just 65% with the same high overclocking of the memory and it lowers my hashrate just a little bit but makes it way more efficient. the cards using only around 100W each with a hashrate of around 300-305 sol/s per card. AND they got even cooler from 56/58 C° to just 52/55

before it was just a little sol/s more but 120W per card… so yeah… with energy costs of 0.28€ per Kw/h it makes a difference.

Oh wow. Are you using the GPUs fan to keep it that cool? or an external fan? Or just a wide open case?

Also how are you getting such high hash rate. Mine oddly, sometimes jumps around to 300-310 sol/s But 90% of the time. Its between 290-299.

And hmm. Well I think my hydro here is super cheap. If I'm correct its like .05-.12/kw/h

If I tried putting my GPU over +750 for memory clock. My graphics crash and restart with defaults.So its impressive that yours is staying stable at that high. Maybe if I didn't run a gui on my computer I use more minng (and other things) hashrate would be more consistent

So I'm keeping it at about +650 Which only give me 285-299 sol/s.

EWBF doesn't seem very accurate.

nicee!, I have a 1060 on the way, with 1050ti mining at home already but a little hesitant on going all out because of the risks. Once I see payouts then i'll be convinced :slight_smile:

That's what its all about. Take it slowish. But ensure you get a payout and ROI within atleast a year before spending more on gpus. But I feel confident that if you start getting into it big, this early in the game. Your much better off in the long run

Aaron. This might bring some encouragement

This is my 1060 hashing at 290-299sol/s + my buddies AMD hashing at 180-210sol/s

Been at it only for maybe not even a week 1/2 yet.
