Best way of recycling RX 580

Hi community

I imagine we are numerous having to recycle our RX 470 / 480 / 570 / 580 to something else than ETH.

I would like to know what you are planning to do owners ?

  • Stay on ETC with same settings ?
  • Move to RVN / FLUX / ERGO or another trendy cyrpto ?
  • Use dual mining ? if such which ones ?

First drawback seen on my side, +25% power drain if leaving ETH/ETC, that is much :S
Bye bye memory intensive mining

I’m using my rx 470 for RVN and it seems to have been a good choice with the recent price jump lol

Doing the same at this point, but heat and power drain will become soon a problem
My 1200W PSU howls in pain

May I know your settings

I transpose all my ETH settings to RVN with no touch
So surprising behaviour with some cards …
Nitro+ sux, Asus ROG become king, Pulse become hoven
Going to flash VBIOS to stock and see what happen

Ok here are my 470 overclocks (msi) i dont think they are as good as they could be but i havent tuned it alot yet. also, its just stock vbios.


ALSO IT IS NOT READING THE POWER RIGHT

Do you have any better overclocks for an rx 470 lol

Behaviour of 470 / 480 / 570 / 580 are very similar
Take a look at my MSI

All this rig were above 32 Mh/s previously on ETH, somehow optimized

MSI usually sux with Polaris
