    Hello,

    New to mining here, but I'm trying to get one of my machines (running SLI 980Ti's) to limit it's GPU Usage/Temps.

    I'm using Awesome Miner, but it just ain't working. I have associated the same Device Profile to it and my other 2 PC's running Nvidia hardware, they seem to be correctly running a lower intensity and hitting only 40-50 degrees in temp.

    My main PC Hitting 90 degrees both GPU's, bit too much.

    Any advice is appreciated.
    Cheers

    Try using MSI Afterburner instead to limit the power.

    Hey man, I kinda did, I adjusted the fan profiles and it worked better. I just took out one card, spread it across to my other machines and individually upgraded their cards and set em all up for mining. Automated to run msi afterburner with more specific fan profile and it's doing the job, got the lowered intensity working on each device so they can play games and mine at the same time! And they only mine when they're turned on and being used, except for my server and my own device!

    Got 10Bucks worth of btc/eth so far!
