Go to the EOC page and click my name to view my stats. Started running my 6 gig 1060 on 5/6. Mine is the MSI version. Runs 1925 clock on average.

Greerd is running a bit shy of me, but he is running a gtx970 as well as an i7. Raiders runs neck-n-neck with my 1060, but he also runs a ryzen as well. I dont run a cpu,my FX chip isnt worth the power.

Using this
https://www.zotac.com/us/product/graphi ... -1060-mini

Bought for £220 off CCL. Was thinking about water cooling the GPU, as it does seem to be thermal throttling. it did 390K PPD after install, now dropped to 320K PPD.

It will fluctuate with the WUs. Some projects score better than others. Just let it run.

Seems like for the cost of that card and some water cooling, you might as well have just bought a gtx 1070 instead. The 1060 you got has a single fan and smaller form factor. Mine is a full size card with dual fans. Your clocks may get limited compared to mine. Like I said mine is running 1925-1975 on the clock and you can see my stats on EOC.

That dgree of variation can be normal from one WU to the next.

I would read this post before deciding to spend your money.

I have the Raijintek Triton pump and radiator from my previous build, where I had the 980 and 4790K running in a very cramped case.. Temps maxed out at 50.C, in a case this size.

Image

I'm pretty sure the stock cooler on my 1060 is thermal throttling, PPD increases when I increase the GPU fan and increase airflow around the GPU. My 980 averaged 420K PPD, with the 1060 been slightly slower, I should be averaging around 390K PPD, so something is a miss.

I think this thread needs to be made sticky as it is a current and ongoing topic and as such will bring it to the attention of more potential folders. If one of the mods could see his way to sort this for us, I think we all would be grateful.

Hi all,
I have been trying to get a signature like some of you and it has taken most of the day, but I think that I have now got it sorted. I am only writing this just to see if it works. It looks a bit small and the text is not too easy to read, but I will submit it and see how it looks.

I see that "Dvoraks Ninth" in the charts has just started to drop back a bit from us. Onwards and upwards

Best regards Keith

man nvidia-smi for more.

LazyDev ,

thank you very much for the code. As you can see it is working well now. Nearly the same layout as other folders, but happy with that.
