Couldn’t find any topic specifically about this card for ETH mining. Should be LHR v2 (bought this month brand new).
It has some of the worst Hynix memories around it seems, will crash at anything above +750 memclock (windows numbers, 1500 in hiveos).
I was able to see it running at 46MH/s, but it’s not stable - won’t even last 15min mining before it crashes. 100% sure it’s no the PSU, it’s also brand new - I was previously mining with double PSU but I reduced the size of my rig now so a single 850W gold+ is good enough and I’m actually surprised how efficient it is, really high 90%s since the total power draw from the wall is 275-290 watts with the cards doing 240W, that leaves 35-50W for the whole system plus the % of efficiency missing.
Also 2 identical models running side by side bought from separate shops. No issue with the risers with other cards using about the same wattage. Had this issue on windows and switched to HiveOS hoping it would help, but same result.
I see people with samsung mems going up to +1600 on mem or more, crazy how shit these mem chips must be to handle less than half of that
The worst part is that it doesn’t even get caught by watchdog, it completely freezes the system so you can’t automatically recover - you need to move your ass and manually restart the rig. Thank god it’s in my house, but even so I probably climbed over 1500 steps in the past 3 days cause it’s in the attic and no other 3060 TI LHR config (even other hynixes) worked, when I thought I had it (running for 20 min or so) I’d come downstairs only for it to crash a few minutes later.
This is the best I can get. I can get a slightly better hashrate at the cost of a worse kH/w.
Fluctuates between 42-44, guess that’s just the anti-lhr doing it’s thing. 2 rejected shares though. I’ll keep an eye on it. But the kH/w is getting close to 400 which isn’t terrible, but it could way better (390ish) if I could run them at 45-46MH/s with low voltage - not gonna happen.
The best thing I can say about this card is “the temps aren’t terrible, seen worse”. My fans are a bit high but that’s because I set them to manual % to ensure 0 voltage impact since these cards so are sensitive. Once i’m sure this is stable I’ll lower the fans a bit. With this PL fans at 60% will keep the core on the low 60s, and I’m not underclocking the core, I believe 1400 is the stock non-boost speed for this card (1710 boost), otherwise it’s pretty close to that.
For some reason underclocking the core triggers the LHR lock a lot more often, it requires lowering t-rexes “lhr-tune” value to close to 70%, instead of the 75% it is running now. Ends up with less hashrate and same power draw.
Please share you experiences for ETH with this exact card. If you can get better results please share!
Also curious how well it performs in dual mining, I’d really like to keep the power draw and/or voltage as low as possible, a lot of dual mining tend to not be profitable in places with high electricity price sadly.
PS Edit: I know it’s not running for long, almost exactly 3h by the time of writing, but so far any higher mem crashes within 30min max, so i’m 90% sure this will hold for a week before it’s scheduled reboot.
