Can you help me overclock my Nvidia P104-100?

This is my boss's computer and he asked me to overclock the GPU so he can mine cryptocurrency.

The graphics card is Nvidia P104-100 and I have the drivers installed.

I tried following the steps in this video but it's not working for me. I tried adding the Coolbits code to the xorg.conf file. After I reboot the screen resolution is now too big for my monitor and everything displayed is juttering.

Here is the xorg.conf file on my computer:

Code: Select all

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 384.90  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-05)  Tue Sep 19 18:13:03 PDT 2017

        Depth       24
        Modes      "nvidia-auto-select"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
I tried adding Option "Coolbits" "8" to the Nvidia device section. I added it right below the BusID section.

This isn't working for me and is only creating problems. Does anyone know how I can overclock this GPU?

Thank you
