You did mind that your cards will reach their life end way earlier if you run them @100%?

I just added two msi duke cards and with 100% tdp 80% fan they run about 63-64c.  This is in a 6gpu frame with fans blowing on them ambient 20-22c.

Kinda disappointed they run so warm with huge coolers on them.

What do you guys like to see for temps?  Is mid 60s OK for 24/7 use?

According to the subreddit for gpumining, anything under 70C is fine for mining. Above that and you want to reduce temps unless you really want them hashes now at the expense of your hardware. Don't even know how you would keep it under 60C in certain parts of the world... at least in a regular home setting.

Keep in mind that gamers tax gpus more than mining since varying temperature stresses electronics more than stable temps, and how often do they replace gpus because they died? Statistically you're more likely to replace gpus for upgrades, it's outliers that actually have them die.

Fans though, apparently those need replacement sometimes.

Assume that is true for a moment (it may or may not be) that even if heat is kept in check 100% TDP will fry the card much sooner than otherwise.

While under warranty it is a non-issue.  Outside of the warranty period I would immediately scale TDP down to stretch out the remaining lifetime of the card.

As of today, Bulwark is more profitable to mine than ZCL?

Ok, now i am definitely sure that miningpoolhub is not reporting hashrates and consequently earnings as they should be for Zcoin. With my 12 1080 ti`s i am getting about 41mh/s. The pool reports 25 the whole day! Tried with sp mod ccminer, ccminer djm34, cc miner 2.2.2 cuda9, and few other ccminer versions, and the reported hashrate is never above 27 mh/s! I`ve looked to other pools for mining zcoin and since suprnova owner (only other pool that had some serious zcoin hashrate) decided to remove zcoin from pool, miningpoolhub is the only one, unfortunately. There are other pools with dozen of zcoin miners at best and you can mine there and wait for a day or to for the pool to find the block.

I have compiled latest tpruvot ccminer with some easy tricks and it is faster than djm's and have no problems working both with mph and yiimp-based pools. MPH's reported hashrated well corresponds with ccminer hashrate.
PM me if you want details or ready-miner with bat settings. But not free in this greedy world ))

Running cards at their intended spec will not dramatically reduce their lifespan.
Running the cards up near thermal limits will.
Besides, do you really intend on running those cards for 3+ years?

I will run them as long as they pay at least electricity + a few bucks 🤷🏼‍♂️

I only have 3 1080ti's pointed to this coin but no issue on my end with my hashrate, it bounces +/- 1mh/s of what it should.  Also, getting daily payout of just about what whattomine says I should, which isn't much but too lazy to chase new coins right now.

You kinda have this "I'm-greedy-too-vibe". Just like user sp_ you will probably ask a price that's ridiculous low to big miners (with a lot of rigs) or ridiculous high to small miners (like me).

I'm getting fed up with this forum lately. What happend to the "we-are-here-to-help-mentality"? It's not just you, it's everywhere on this site lately. I guess greed is the engine that drives it all.

It's certainly possible to run a top end GPU (at the initial launch date for that series) for 3 years and still be profitable. Of course nobody can predict the future, but a 3 year old GPU that was a high(er) end model at the start 2015 should still bring in a small profit after electric costs today (assuming average electric costs).

Yah I may not mine with these for three years however I'm not trying to destroy them either. I like to take good care of my equipment.

The msi Duke require fan at 80% otherwise they climb over 63c. Ambient 20-22c.  I don't wanna spin the fans harder.

In the summer I will have to pull tdp back for sure no way around it without constant air conditioning.

I understand your point, it has some merit.

Counter to that, I mine to make money not save a circuit board for the grandkids or for the manufacturer to send me a thank you note for taking care of my capacitors.

The unmistakable constant rise in bitcoin over the long term means that anything you make now will be worth much more later.

You may be earning $100 a week, after 3 years you look back and in fact you were earning at "today's" prices $1200 a week.

Keeping fans under x% / low power to "prolong life" is the height of folly as far as I'm concerned.


The more btc you earn now the better, and a small increase in the hash rate will pay you massive dividends later on.

Replacing a fan with a $3ebay one is easy for anyone who mines. Should it die, put the old fan back on and send in for replacement.
If cards die get them cross shipped with replacements, hardly any downtime.

Sell when there is 6months warranty left, (evga's is transferable, making for increased resale value to gamers) and use the funds to buy the latest cards.

These are machines for working not pets that need looking after. Smiley

Im planning to invest in buying 4 1080ti. What tactics you should recommend - start it with nicehash and then monitor trashcoins that are good in the beginnig?

Also please tell me if anybody uses this card with HiveOS?

I started out with NH for my first 1080 Ti. Then I saw that HashRefinery was earning me more. And then Ahashpool.

BTC is going up in value the last couple of days. I suggest you try several pools before "settling down".
If you earn $1 more per day at another pool, why not make the switch? In the end it's $365 extra.

I think people make up a lot of these "theories" or numbers.  These cards are designed to run >70.  Either way, most cards have 3-4 year warranties...
