Ethereum update: Responding to Downvolting 1060/1070/1080 the best way, It’s not the best way. Try NVinpsector instead (Proof Inside)
@whotheff found an interesting, what I would call “Glitch” in MSI afterburner. However, this way is awful and I would personally not do this.
If you’re a miner, mining ETC/ETH using Windows for any Nvidia GPU use NVinpsector. Any miners out there looking to save power/increase hash IMHO need to stay away from MSI’s afterburner.
To start, download NvInspector and Nvidia Profile Inspector.
Open Nv Profile Inspector and change P2 state to “OFF”
***PAY ATTENTION*** Changing P2 to off means whatever Memory overclock you would normally clock deduct 200MHz. Example +600 in MSI afterburner = 400 in Nvinspector Batch File. This is because nvidia’s P2 state is normally on when you mine so while you might put the memory clocks at 4600 in MSI, it’s actually 4400.
create a batch file. Put the Batch file in the same folder as NVinspector
Example for EVGA GTX1070: nvidiaInspector.exe -setBaseClockOffset:0,0,100 -lockVoltagePoint:0,685000 -setMemoryClockOffset:0,0,400 -setPowerTarget:0,100 -setTempTarget:0,0,75
This is for GPU 0, for GPU 1 change the first number to 1, and so on.
nvidiaInspector.exe -setBaseClockOffset:1,0,100 -lockVoltagePoint:1,685000 -setMemoryClockOffset:1,0,400 -setPowerTarget:1,100 -setTempTarget:1,0,75
I personally create individual batch files for each GPU. This allows me to individually clock and adjust each GPU.
once you create the batchfile, run it, you’ll see a CMD window come up. Look at nvinspector and see the changes have applied.
As you can see my GTX1070’s is running at 87w hashing ETH at 31Mh/s.
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
