so if I run the fan around %70 is it ok or is it too much and will damage the fan sooner ?_

I think it is better to utilize your fan to avoid GPU overheat damage. BTW the fan is quite cheap if you can change it yourself, but you can't change GPU and GPU other electronic components.

Thanks !
I run my EVGA 1080ti SC2 @ 70° max with fans @ 60%
Those chips can run at 90°, it is advised to not go >80° so for me 70 is a good MAX temp for 24/7
If I have any issue, I have a 48 hours RMA with EVGA so I dont care.

same for me, 70degres is a good temp for mining

I don't know, those numbers sound a bit high. You may need to throttle back on the power consumption of these cards a bit more. I have that exact card EVGA 1080Ti SC2 in a rig with 4 others (5 GPU rig) and they all only run around 60° C with the fans speeds only hovering around 40-50%.

They are all doing 800 Sols with a bit less than 140 watts each power draw (750W for the entire rig including system overhead), and operating in a 90° F (32° C) environment, so not unduly cool by any means. Even if I switch to ETH mining, they still are right around the same temps and fan speeds, although power use may creep up slightly.

yes but it depend a lot of your environement, case, fans etc etc. for me, i live in a real furnace in summer, very hot their, and lot of dust, so if i open everything, their will be a lot of dust inside my parts and the cooling will be reduced. So for the moment, i prefer to close everything even if it will run hotter

True, good air flow is indeed important and I do have a lot of fans pointed at my rigs. For dust you can use furnace air filters in front of the fans to help. If you have a lot of dust issues you could build a box to direct the airflow better and reduce the dust even more. There is a YouTube video of a guy in Florida who put all his rigs into 3 plywood boxes he built, they use furnace filters to filter the incoming air and some 30" home depot fans to exhaust out the top.  While it may seem extreme, when you consider the 1080Ti's are close to $700 each, it might be a good option if oyu run yours in a dirty environment.

Can't find the video atm, but if I do I will update the post. Found it, think it is also been posted by others before, but here it is again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-_9F8R_PFU

MSI Afterburner. Reduce Power Limit (I run ~ 68), un-check the temp link and set the temp to ~85 or so. The cards don't run this hot but this keeps the software from throttling, with a 20+ degree difference between actual and limit there is no throttling. Then increase core clock to 250 or whatever you can before it crashes, and you can leave memory at default or even reduce it slightly as it has little impact on Equihash mining. Also, keeping your cards cool is a must, as I posted above I have a lot of airflow going to and over my cards, so I think that is the main secret as if they start to get hot even in the 70's the cards will start to throttle back and the Sols will begin to drop.

Man those evgas oc really well i have 2 rigs with strix oc and zotac amp extreme and highest i got was +160,my cards don't go over 60c.Whats your cpu i saw few cases where shity cpu caused few % lower sols

Now that you mention it that rig does have an Intel i5 processor as I was going to do other things with it. Not top end, but it is definitely better than a Celeron, although CPU usage seems to be of little importance during mining. But it may have something to do with better access to the PCI lanes or something.

One other thing, that while maybe not related directly to mining performance but sharing for full disclosure, is that I am using a Samsung 960 EVO 256 GB M.2 drive in that rig. I am also running 16 GB of RAM, while I normally only run 4 GB (again I plan to use the rig for other things as well). So while I really think the mining performance is more due to the cards and keeping them cool, it is true that this rig is built to a bit higher quality than is typically found in a standard mining rig.

Just finished a clients build with 6 EVGA 1080ti SC with no overclock.

Those are all latest Ccminers

I will be updating Sniffdog on new release with stock settings....

FYI... Some of you probably know but those who don't... Nvidia see's that the card was used for mining.... won't be warranty... take care if you over/underclock. Smiley This is the first time since I started crypto mining that vendors and companies are refusing warranty work...

Just to Vent.... None of this is illegal!!!!!

There.... I'll shut my big yap!

Zpool,Multipoolhub,Hashrefinery, and ahashpool... SniffDog will sniff you out profits! V2.7! https://github.com/Sniffdog/Sniffdogminer/releases......... New Company selling Lifetime Mining Contracts! https://my.omnia-tech.eu/afl/ref-new/64652

I bought my GPU in the biggest computer store in the country. They too told me Nvidia could see that the card was used for mining. The seller claimed the Nvidia people could see how many hours a GPU had been running.

And? Even if they know that the gpu has run 24/7? Thats not illegal or against their Terms of sales. Even if it's true, how to verify with a fried GPU?
They have no legal right to refuse a RMA, you could sue them badly.
I have RMA some 1060 used for mining and they even send me back a 1070.
The seller told you that to scare you and not have to manage a possible RMA.
BS.

Last 5 hrs results with Nemos auto algo and zpool:

0.00047437 BTC. Not sure it will be seeing more after full 24 hrs. may need to run for few days for a more accurate daily profit? Still not sure any more fee deduction when doing the BTC transfer.

give and take it will do 0.0005 BTC in 5 hours, this is like 0.0024 BTC/day. which is far from Nicehash 0.0032 estimate! I already feel that 0.0032 BTC/day from Nicehash is not optimised.

Really wish those who has better alternative with 1080ti can share over here.


music coin appears to be the most profitable to mine at the moment , i haven't really looked into it though because im pretty sure its a shit coin that just been pumped. I just mine dgb and sell when the price rises slightly. Mining and then auto converting to btc doesn't seem like a very efficient way to mine iin my opinion.
