Mining in summer months

When the weather is getting warmer and hotter your rigs will most likely start to crash on the very same clocks you had them running on for months.

Increased temperatures won't necessarily affect only your GPU's core temperature, but also memory temperature, which you can't see for all GPUs.

Here are some solutions you can try out to solve the issues with overheating:

  • Increase the fans;
  • Run cards at lower memory and lower power consumption;
  • Clean the cards to make sure the dust is not making things worse;
  • Replace the thermal pads on GPUs;
  • Make sure to have proper outside cooling - small fans to the rig and larger fans to keep the room cooler;
  • Another alternative is also water cooling and immersion cooling.
