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.



How to monitor your GPU mining temperature 

I found some very simple, but amazing free software to monitor not only GPU temperature, but also CPU and etc. It is 100% MUST HAVE program for us, miners. I will leave Download link in bottom of article. This is a screenshot of program running. Sweet!

Here is a link. Simple and really useful soft. Just for my readers shared google drive soft.

  1. Sorry, but this is plain false.

    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.

    R9 AMD series run 90°C regularly under load. For years.

    This kind of talk is why people ruin their cards with mineral oil or spend hundreds on liquid cooling systems because they think it’s a must and if their GPU spikes 75 when playing Overwatch, it’ll be dead in 2 months.
    I have seen some poor sod cool his GPU with liquid nitrogen, spent buckets of cash only to have this whole setup ruined and dead because of condensation.

    So let me get this CLEAR.

    90 degrees will kill CPU, but GPU can handle up to 110 degrees before lasting, immediate damage occurs.

    NO, you don’t need waterblock. NO, you don’t need non-ref. NO you don’t need to keep your GPU at 50 degrees. GPU fan will die MUCH faster than GPU. If you keep it running at 100%, you’ll kill the fan and your card will burn before PC shuts down.

    Thermic damage will impact your GPU if you are still using it in 10 years. Will you? Does anybody??

    • Yep. Totally agree with this. GPU Temps are not the same as CPU. Mine regularly goes from 75-80° and no issue(2 years with this). I have seen it go over 85-90° but that’s when I’m rendering some shit.

      • Yes, this is possible too. Lately I configured my rigs to be stable and trusty on 60C degrees with 72% fans (Radeon RX 580 4GB).
