I noticed (with any card model) that with HiveOS the rigs still use significant power after I stop the miner software. Compared to NiceHash OS (also Linux), the power used is insignificant when mining stops, e.g NiceHash OS uses around 50W per rig at the socket.
For example with 8 very efficient cards (RX6600) while mining I use 590W at socket, and after stopping mining, I still use 234W at the socket.
HiveOS also shows 20W next to each card while they are stopped.
Why is that ?
I tried stopping the fans too, no effect (they don’t consume 20W anyway)
Also tried removing the flight sheet thinking the mining software might use the power, but no effect.
Any ideas ?
How is it for you ?
This is kind of important because whenever miners crash for some reason, they still continue to use power, so even if I earn nothing they use almost 40% of the power (234W or 590W).
