    How hard did you clock the memory? A few guys on FB kill their 3070 after a few weeks doing 1400+ memory. Your GPU memory is stuff if you see lines and blocks.

    I was running mine at 1350+ but lowered it to 1250 for longevity, 0.8mh less but i feel better about them long term :)

    Any time I tried much more than +800 (across all GPUs) I got crashes so I mostly ran them all at +800. I think I just tried 850 again when this happened but that's bugger all really. A mate at work runs his at +1200 too.

    I can't get near the power figures you guys are getting either, I left them at 160w also for stability. When I tested 140's I got crashes, best settings are where they keep running for as long as possible without intervention.

    My one 3060Ti is much nicer, easily runs +1100 and 118w at first try, I haven't even tried to milk more. If I could fill a frame or two with these I would be happy.

    Have any of you guys got A10's?


    :)

    Yikes, I’ve been running +1400 for a few weeks now on 3 cards. Been rock solid so far (0.1% invalid, running at 63 MH/s).

    They all should able to get 1200-1250 easy.

    It isn't worth it the last 1.5 MHS. All my 3060ti and 70 hash between 61.5 - 61.7 MHS draw 108-119w +1220 mem.

    Maybe this one Strix has been causing problems for me since day one .....

    What is your power level and core clock at for that low power?

    All my 3070's are at -500 core, +1200 memory and vary from 50-54% power level.

    You guys did not catch what I said earlier. T-Rex version 20.04 has a new feature --lock-cclock no need for MSI afterburn and PL is not needed.

    This feature benefit 20xx series heaps drops 30w on my 2060super and still same hash rate. 30xx series also drop a little since the GPU is very efficient already.

    My 2060 draw 95w, my 3060s draw 105-106w, my 3070 draw 108- 119w my 3060ti draw 108-119w. It is depends on silicon lottery.

    I have a very good 3070 108w 61.7 MHS. And 3060ti 61.6 MHS 108w. My power consumption drop 871w to 785w for my 6GPUs rig same hash rate.

    I've been monitoring the network hashrate of eth, etc and rvn. They have dropped a little but nothing noticable.

    Edit: response to @rs3

    Does it automatically adjust your settings til optimal? how do you make sure it doesnt overclock your memory too high?

    Ethereum hashrate has dropped 9% since 20th may, that seemed pretty significant after it had been constantly increasing.

    <$4 per GPU per day probably turned alot of people off.

    No, you have to set the value say 1000mhz, then the lock clock will try to keep the cpu at that speed. The memory is set by the user too. If you want to know how to jump here.

    I hope the price drop even lower. I want to get to 10 eth buy end of the year.

    By the look of the buy swap and sell section, eBay etc. Looks like a lot of people are done with mining... For now anyway.

    My 1660 is still chugging along although it's making stuff all.

    if hashrate drops faster than price, it balances out i think.

    retail/paper hands are selling up, i've just order a new 8 gpu frame.
    preparing for the warmer months coming :)

    You power values look similar to mine. Reckon there's any more to squeeze out or just keep on gminer? You can save 2-6w just by spacing cards out so they dont get hot.

    Ethereum network hashrate down 14.7% since May 20th, ETH reward getting higher for the same hashrate, happy panda :)

    China bans gettin gpeople to shutdown to move their operations, or possibly just calling it quits and liquidating hardware.

    Ethereum classic down 25% in hashrate since the may 9th peak, i'm happy with 25% more accumulation :)
