Recently I have been looking at the best ways to Optimize my CPU and GPU for Cryptocurrency Mining. I have been mining as a hobby since 2013 and while i am a great self-proclaimed PC Computer builder, maybe not so good at deciding when to sell my bag of coins, hence why I am still here mining. So, as I mine at home I need my rigs to run on the least amount of electricity, produce the minimum amount of heat and noise but have the highest Hashrate possible. If you wish to Optimize your CPU Power Usage on your […]
GPU Mining is crunching data directly on your Graphics Card (GPU) of your computer that is trying to solve complex math problems in a given block to release coins that can be used as a currency.
If your MSI Afterburner Power Limit Slider is stuck, greyed out or just makes no difference at all when you change it? Well, this should solve your problems. Most Gaming GPU heads want to Overclock there GPUs to get extra speed (FPS) from them regardless of Power Consumption or Heat. But when GPU Mining, we want to help reduce heat, save power and keep our GPUs working reliable for a long time, i have some GPUs that have been running for 2+ years 24/7 with no reduction in performance What Software do i need to UnderClock or OverClock my GPU?

I reached 31.6MH/s @ 80w on a Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 Rev 2.0 with Hynix GDDR6 after a BIOS flash and some tweaking. It Started off with a very Low Hash Rate of 22MH/s so this was an amazing result. The Gigabyte Geforce RTX 2060 arrived today, this time a REV 2.0 card with BIOS 90.04.63.80.0F Previously I have had REV 1.0 cards that have performed well but as I buy my cards online without seeing the box, it can be a bit “hit or miss” to what you actually yet. As of Dec 2021, GPU cards are still in […]
Some great steps to increase electricity efficiency while GPU Mining and reduce GPU Mining costs. This guide will help you understand the steps to reduce power while mining and so can be applied to all makes and models of GPU Regardless of your GPU choice, Or GPU model we all want to help reduce the costs, heat, power consumption, increase efficiency and the Hash Rate of our Mining Rigs. One of the first things I would recommend any serious miner to buy is a Watt Meter. This will give you the actual power draw at the wall of a given item […]
I set out to make serous miner with 6x Radeon 6970. Up until now I have only built SLI rigs in standard cases so this required some additional planning. I searched eBay etc and there is nothing commercially available to buy to hold 6 cards. Its time to build my own.
