Nvidia throttling - Software thermal slowdown

For some Nvidia GPUs, you will see this error displayed as:

minerstat - Nvidia GPU Throttle

Nvidia software thermal slowdown is an indicator of:

  • GPU's temperature being higher than the maximum operating temperature or
  • GPU's memory temperature being higher than maximum operating memory temperature.

Thermal throttling can be solved by:

  • Increasing the speed of your fans to cool down the GPUs even more;
  • Reducing your overclocking settings and making them less intense;
  • Improving your cooling and ventilation system of the rig.

Keep in mind that not all GPUs are affected by this.
