This question is primarily aimed at the veteran miners of Zcash and, perhaps, older cryptos too. I am trying to:
Get a sense of what proportion of miners are running their GPUs overclocked 24/7 (if you want to post your stats, great, but I realize that stability depends heavily on card-type and a bit of “silicon” luck).
For those that did overclock, what consequences did you suffer down the line, and how quickly was payment demanded of you by the Silicon gods?
I am using all EVGA cards in my rigs and keeping temperatures X =< 65 C on all cards with a +100 core overclock yielding about +25 sol/s/card. To be honest, I feel I’ll be lucky to have more than a year or two to mine (let’s say 2 for the sake of argument)…am I significantly increasing the risk of catastrophic failure with this setup?
I appreciate your thoughts and consideration.
In case it’s needed for a more complete answer, I am using EVGA 1080 Ti SC BLACK Gaming Edition cards with Micron GDDRX memory, and EVGA 1600W PSUs (1x T2, 1x P2).
