Eutherium mining on gaming rig

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there. I just finished building my gaming rig and its been great. It has a 6600k, asus strix 1070 and 8gb 2133. I have been running it on some eutherium mining and i was wondering if i could cause any damage by running it for extended periods of time. on default fan speed (idk what it is, its always on auto) i never pass 60C. If i set the fans to 50% the temps never pass 45C. From my research as long as it is below 80C imm  all good but i just want someone to confirm that.I understand that even by having the card on there is always a slight chance of it failing (as with anything) and that leaving it on for a few extra hours could marginally increase that. Again i use this pc for daily gaming so hopefully it can last me a few years. Thanks

It can reduce longevity of the pc due to constant 100% load

Ya i was expecting that. I shouldn't be that bad as long as i give it lang breaks every few hours. Right? also it is not 24/7 I usually only run it for 6-7 hours during the day then game on it a bit. its then off.

naw its a gaming rig. not a dedicated mining rig. the mining is mostly temporary, not serious. your right i would have gotten a 480 otherwise. It was kinda a side thought. It will probably only do this for the month so that i can have some money for steam.

I'm running a 1060 for mining. In theory will reduce your lifespan, but mining isn't a true 100% load. You can undervolt really far without affecting hashtags. I'm using about 55% power (I think about 70w) and get 20.75 Mh/S


If I'm honest I spend more time playing with the hardware than I do playing on the hardware

ETH mining is very easy on the GPU, the power% is around 50% and temperatures are very safe, below 60C actually. You'll earn about a dollar per day. But you might wanna look into Zcash mining if you want to utilize your GPU more. Send me a message if you're interested. 

ya i saw a bit about that. i will do some research into that. is is honestly that much more worth it.

are you paying for your bills? i dunno if youll make any profit with a 1070. but if youre at like a university or at your parents house then it shouldnt matter unless they complain kek

Mine zcash then. Afaik, better for Nvidia cards


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
