This fourth installment of our Ethereum mining guide will focus on optimizing your rig’s performance via GPU clock speed and voltage setting tweaks to achieve maximum efficiency. The tweaks that I outline in this article are applicable whether you’re using Linux or Windows.
More speed for less power—how is that possible? Build an Ethereum Mining Rig, part 4: Optimization Let’s get the bad news out of the way up front: achieving these levels of performance gain require flashing your GPU BIOS with custom replacements. I assume no responsibility for hardware damage if you choose to follow this guide! With that said, I’ve flashed probably close to a hundred GPUs, and I haven’t destroyed any hardware yet.
If you proceed, just make sure to follow the steps in order, don’t take any shortcuts, and stop if there is anything that you’re confused or unsure about. You’ll flash your GPUs with this computer. Or, you can simply temporarily move your GPUs to another computer running Windows to flash them. We’ll use this to read and write BIOS files to our GPU hardware. We’ll use this to modify BIOS files. We’ll need this to get AMD’s Windows driver to recognize a modded BIOS.
Not strictly required, but I highly recommend this—it’ll pay for itself! I have two of these and consider them invaluable in dialing in the performance of my mining rigs. Some baseline information on each of your GPU’s factory performance to compare your modifications against. This will be immensely useful later when trying to figure out if your mods are beneficial or not. From this point on, I’m going to assume that you’re following directions on a Windows computer with the above software available, ideally with a Kill-a-Watt connected for testing.
