GPU mining temperature monitoring – what software to use?
GPU mining versus CPU mining
GPU (graphics processing unit) mining is always a better choice if you want to get results (in this case coins) as fast as possible. Since bitcoin has it’s own GPU killers also known as ASIC’s nowadays miners with GPU mine Ethereum and other altcoins (alternative cryptocurrencies). Comparing to CPU mining GPU mining is faster and way more competitive as you can mine in higher speeds (mh/s; sol/s; mb/s) but you waste more power/electricity, GPU mining temperature monitoring becomes key-action and your equipment “gets old” faster.
GPU mining temperature monitoring
In case you started GPU mining but wondering what is normal temperature and what is dangerous temperature let me help you with this GPU mining temperature monitoring info:
0°C – 29°C – You should turn your PC ON.
30°C – 49°C – Normal PC stand by, did you turned your miner ON?
50°C – 59°C – GPU is working fine, might be working even more hard.
60°C – 69°C – Some action is going on, but GPU still processing in very acceptable rate.
70°C – 75°C – Very active mining or high quality gaming is on. It shouldn’t get any hotter.
75°C – 79°C – Well, this is now a risk zone. Some GPU’s might survive it, but I advice to back it off.
80°C – 89°C – If you are still running and don’t smell plastic – you literally ruining your GPU.
90°C – 99°C – Apparently room filled with smoke. Well, this is a bad sign.
100°C – 109°C – Congratulations if your GPU handled this, now you must treat it like little puppy. And order new one.
110°C – xxxx°C – You can put your GPU on a wall of fame. It is officially dead.
