So I just purchased a rig with six 5700xt cards. When I flashed the HDD, unbeknownst to me, it set the miner as trex (I guess because I have other miners running trex). I changed the flight sheet and it seemed like it was going to be fine; however, all the card memory temps jump up to over 100 and the cards overheat/crash. It does this even without overclocking. I put a pretty good sized fan on the miner and it didn’t really change the temps. As a side note, I have screenshots of the miner running at 55m/h per card across the board with temps in the 80s prior to me purchasing it.
- could the trex have messed anything up?
- would it benefit me to change the thermal pads/paste (they’re all MSI cards with micron memory)
- should I mod the bios?
a) if so, how do I do this? I mean i can see tutorials all over the place, but can I do it from the miner itself or would I need to plug the cards into an empty slot on my PC?
- I have one card that was being recognized but wouldn’t mine. Now, it’s not showing up at all. I have narrowed down which card it is by testing one at time. I’ve did some troubleshooting using different slots/cables but nothing worked for it.
Thanks for any help!
