Hi Guys

this morning I removed my MSI GTX 1060 6GB Gaming X from my desktop pc. After run Claymore 10.0 with only Gigabyte GTX 1060 WFOC 3GB, the hashrate drop dow from 25.5 (when both cards was working together) to 23.5 with Gigabyte alone.

Any feedback about that?

Hi,

I have tested different Miner with my GTX 1060 6GB graphics card.

Performance are similar between the 3 and 6 gig memory, but 6 gig one has a better resale future vulue and won't be affected into next Ethereum dag stuff that will block every gpu under 3, or 4 go of memory.

There is as well the memory manufacturer that you may find while downloading GPU-Z. You want samsung ( Best hashrate and best overclocking abilities )

You don't want the single fan versions of the 1060s, you would lost more than 10% hashrate.

If the 1060 has a 8 pin connectors instead of a 6 pins, it's a must.

Always compare overall Mhz in specs, take the one that has more of those.

The single fans can pull the same hashrates, and are often cheaper too

I don't know about resale - will we really be able to get much for our 6Gb cards after we've had them running 24/7 for a year or two? We won't want to sell until they aren't profitable anymore so I guess that timeline depends on Eth prices, but many miners are holding Eth anyway

As for the 3GB vs 6GB, here's some info on DAG file and sizes - you should be good to mine Ethereum on a 3GB for another year or so.

Well your number are very low, lot of room to improve. Here's some exemples for my Gigabyte WF 1060 6GB -  Ethash: 22-25 mh/s, Equihash: 300 h/s, Cryptonight 550 h/s

Settings depend on algo, it's just basic O/C and limited PL (75% for ETH and CN, 80% for Equihash)

Lucky I guess, probably because of your Samsung memory.

On my 13 graphics cards, I got 2 single fan with 6 pins electricity sockets, and they give me the worst hashrate. I didn't checked their memory brand though, could be a good thing I check that eventually . I get around 5 mh/s less while mining myriad groestl ( stock, I usually get around 56-57 mh for my dual fans, and around 50-52 mh with my single cards)

do we have a Chart which 1060 deliver what Performance? or is there no significant difference between the models?

There are.

--------

I'm still testing my 4 EVGA 6 go with 9 go of memory clock instead of 6, I found another problem with the power supply I received, too high 12v voltage so it destroye one motherboard, and one of my gpu ( glad EVGA has great customer services, they will send me another after I sent it back )

So far, they are all Samsung memories.

I also recommend the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 STRIX-GTX1060-6G, best hashrate so far : https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814126114&cm_re=1060-_-14-126-114-_-Product

I've ordered 5 of those since they are new since only a few weeks ago. I'll have to test the dual mining to see if the 9 go make a nice difference. If it does, then I would recommend them instead of the ASUS. ( Future Resale value, best hashrate, samsung memory, all what you want heh )

Noticed that a lot of people has MSI as well, can't say much about them though : https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137018&cm_re=1060-_-14-137-018-_-Product

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487378&cm_re=1060-_-14-487-378-_-Product

Nice analysis. After reading that I would like to understan better if you recommend EVGA because you're sure they come with Samsung memory onboard. Because I've a MSI GTX1060 6GB Gaming X, comes with Micron memory, very unstable and lower in performance than my older Gigabyte WFOC 3GB.

So.. if you confirm EVGA are with Samsung, I will go with them. Thanks

I ordered around 10 1060 EVGA 6 go cards. There arent all the sames, some are SSC, some are FTW, and the last ones that has all Samsung memory are the FTW2 linked above.

Core clock
1632 MHz

Boost Clock
1860 MHz

I'll have to try their inhouse overclocking program as well, in case it can give better results than msi after burner.

Concerning my 6 x evga 1060 6 go cards, I received 4x samsung, and 2x micron.

I can't promise you that you'll have samsung memories when you'll order, but at least they offer + 3,000 mhz at memory clock, could suit you best if you aim more to dual mine anyway.

Up to you, I'm glad with EVGA so...

Hi...

I've read a lot of post with some of you are pros and some cons to use a single fan GPU (6 or 3GB is the same).

After a not good experience with MSI GTX1060 6GB Gaming X, come with Micron (already sell!) I'm searching for someone new... I'm really confused about the choice of single or dual fan.. about brand... I don't have any idea if it is better to go with "standard" or "gaming" GPU (maybe gaming comes with Micron?!?!) and I don't know if a single fan can be a good choice. I take a look on MSI Aero ITX 6GB... any feedback?
Or did you have any advice? Thank you very much

I've been collecting hashrates for all the 1060 cards - 3GB, 6GB, dual and single fan models. There is no noticable difference in hashrates between the single and double fan units.
https://www.pyramidreviews.com/cryptocorner/mining-gpu-speed-and-price-comparison/
The difference occurs in the Samsung vs Micron vs Hynix memory that is on the GPU.

In theory, the double fan units will run cooler but with 2 fans may use slightly more power. I guess even without fans running, there is a larger heatsink.

However, if you are interested in backing power limit off to get the most profitable hashrate (vs the fastest which is also the hottest hashrate), then the single or dual fan will not be a problem. I have dual fans running at 16% keeping my 1060 6GB GPUs at around 60 degrees in a 24 degree room. If there was only a single fan, a rough estimation is that it would need to run at 32% - still nowhere near topped out in its cooling capacity!

How do you guys decide which is the better crypto to mine?

Should i mine ETH? ZCASH? How to decide?

Everyone's different. Do you want to ROI as quickly as possible? Or are you playing the long-term hold game in the hope whatever you mine will gain value? Or do you want to support a particular project because you believe in their product/philosophy/whatever?

Personally I think mining whatever has good returns for efficiency and then converting into the coins you 'believe' in is a good approach. But that can be a lot of hassle. Some folks just want to set and forget.

Hi guys,

Anyone with 1060 Gigabyte windforce OC 6G here?

I got 6 of them in my rig. Hynix memory  Cry

I'm pulling 1700-1750 sols on Zcash out of the box. do you have settings to get better hashrate?

Tried eth but i can't OC the cards more than mem + 500 or miner crashes.
I was getting 15,5Mh out of the box, 18,8Mh with core-200 mem+500 but even then it's not stable. i get hashrate drops and crashes. anyone had the same issue? got a solution?
i'm sad because i have another 1060 6G KFA2 in my main computer and i'm getting 24Mh on eth with ethminer. I was expecting to be able to get the cards of my rig to a 22 or 23 Mh due to hynix mem but it seems that's not the case or I have a problem that i'm not aware of...

And what else do you mine with your cards right now? Eth, Zcash, xmr, ... ?

Thanks for sharing, I'm curious about ETH hashrate too if you can test it.

Didn't manage to run it, but I think it will be around 18.5 MH/s without manual OC.

Forgot to mention, my GPU is MSI ARMOR, core clock is 1900-1940 during mining (out of box speed), while tdp is 70-75%, temperature is 65-69 degress, ambient temperature is around 23.

Overall is seems to be 66% of GTX 1070 while being also 66% of it's price. So I would recommend to pick 1070 in most cases.

I run a couple rigs, one with 1060 3g and one with 1060 OC 6g and a couple 1070.  The 1070's do run about 30% better rates, however, they also suck more juice at the wall, which translates into more heat and cost. I'd rather not pay for a PC heater thanks.

Right now the most efficient and cost-effective rig (people are gonna be hatin' I'm sure) are EVGA 1060 OC 6g single fan.  A 6x rig will churn out 140mh/s+ while running at 68c and drawing only 500w at the wall.  THAT is not bad for a cheap (never thought I'd call a $270 card cheap) card.

Mining Eth (power between 60-65%, core 0, memory clock +400-600 depending on GPU)
ALL EVGA
1060 3g 18mh/s
1060 OC 6g 22.5-24 mh/s
PNY 1070 OC Gaming 32.5 mh/s

Biostar BTC 250 MoBo, 8g, SSD, Celeron, EVGA 850 G2 Gold... cheap cheap cheap, room for 8 gpu's on that PSU BTW

Hint: Cheap out on everything but the PSU. Cheap PSU can blow the entire rig or worse... burn your house down.

Don't change your core clock, and especially not -200.  The best stable I got underclocking the core was about -75.  I've abandoned that entirely. Try keeping the core at 0, power at 65, and start at +500 on the memory clock as you have it now.  Then run for a bit, and try adding +20 until you start becoming unstable.

You'll save on juice and should be able to get them above 22mh.  All rigs are different, but 18 on a 6g of any flavor is really low.

Is there any difference between EVGA GTX 1060 6GB single fan and the same "Superclocked" version? in terms of mining performance I mean...

Memory type is one thing, but core clock mgz and memory clock mhz has an influences as an influence toward hashrates too, less than memory type though.
