Hello fellow 3060 12 gig card holders. There may be a way to get FULL mining ETH on HiveOS with more than one card due to a glitch. I noticed it happened a few times, but was not able to replicate it. but thanks to
So if you have this card(s) try this, and post What version OS/Miner/Drivers you are using if you are successful and perhaps we can write up a sure way to hack this glitch.
1> Boot with 2 miners set (3060 for autolykos, others for ethash), you can apply this before or right before Hive start mining. (note: I have got it to work with CFX rather the autolykos)
2> Wait about 1-5 minutes until 3060’s fan indicator drop to 0%, this maybe caused by the OS/driver lost connection to the fan sensor. But seems it also make the hashrate limiter won’t work, so I believe the limiter is initiated by the driver.
3> After 0%, then I change flight sheet to which only 1 miner (Gminer in my case) and the 2 working miners are stopped and Hive started Gminer. Most of the time, 3060 started to mine ethash at 49,44 MH/s and the rest also at their hashrate. (I have had it work with TTrex too )
Sometimes 3060 won’t mine because Gminer said it doesn’t connect to GPU0 (3060), so if this happened I just back to the flight sheet with 2 miners again until it started to mine. Without waiting until 0% (because it’s already at 0%), I back to 1 miner flightsheet again. It always started to mine at full hashrate. This second tries is always works, never have to try more than twice.
I use previous driver that I forgot which version, and this 455.45.01 is the newest AFAIK. But, this glitch seems works with previous or newer one.
My 3060 don’t use dummy nor plugged in to monitor. My monitor connected to onboard’s HD Graphics 510.
Yes, it is on a common 1x riser, even the 16x slot is v2, not v3. For now, the riser connected to PEG 16x slot (my last empty slot) lol. I can’t plug 3060 directly to mobo because it eats other 1x space, so I have to use a riser.
Let me know if this works for you, and please post your results, tips for getting the glitch. One other note; IT seems once the glitch happens, you can’t update the 3060’s OverClock settings, so be sure to set them before hand… Cheers and happy mining.
