Ethereum update: Extremely High Temps on a few cards (Reporting 511 Celsius!)
So, If you check my last post. (https://www.reddit.com/r/EtherMining/comments/8t2ztx/months_of_trouble_shooting_trouble_shooting_seems/)
I was having issues of my rig crashing every couple days for a few months. I ended up switching to a intel CPU + Mobo, upgrading the ram to 8gb, and switching to HIVE OS.
After all of this It ran for 2 weeks on HIVEOS with 0 Issues!
Then friday, I thought it was a good time to try and OC the one card that was getting less MH than the other 4. (22 on this card compared to 27-28 on the others. ) I tried download Polaris Bios Editor but when I opened it on the miner, it popped up with an error that it was unable to determine my card specs and asked that I adjust some BIOS settings. I DID NOT adjust the cards, or upload/adjust any settings. I simply closed the software, and booted back into HIVEOS.
Since then a few of my cards will run fine for about 3 hours then will shut down due to temps too high (Reporting 511 Celsius!). I end up restarting the miner rig from HIVE OS remotely, and when it comes back the temps are fine but 1 of the 5 cards is now missing.
Any idea on what could be causing these readings to show so high? (bad riser?) Or the missing GPU after restart?
Thanks for all the help everyone, Replaced the offending riser as many suggested. Seems to be OKAY for now.
I also dropped the power and core clock settings as u/Wasabigaming suggested. (You are a MVP man, thanks for all the help I see you giving to everyone.) And my power draw is at HALF of what is was, and my GPUS are running at 40-60% fans at 64-70c.
