I'm a computer technician who is new to mining, however - I just built a 12x GPU system (this is what I'm good at). The hardware was funded by my work partner, who rushed me into doing this... and as a result we ended up purchasing ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme cards (Radeons and GTX 1070 were sold out from literally every store we inquired with).
I'd like to ask for advice on how I can increase the hashrates on the GTX 1080... because right now - I'm getting 23 MH/s
(which is exactly what these card are supposed to push right out of the box).
It's a little discouraging, to say the least... that such power hungry, bank breaking GPUs are performing so poorly.
My system specs:
ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme [GPU]
Biostar TB250-BTC PRO Ver. 6.x [motherboard]
Intel Celeron G3930 2.90GHz 2MB LGA1151 Kaby Lake [CPU]
Crucial 4GB DDR4 2133 Unbuffered Memory [RAM]
Intel SSD DC S3520 Series (150GB, 2.5in SATA 6Gb/s) [SSD]
EVGA SuperNOVA 1300W G2 ATX 80 PLUS GOLD [PSU]
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W G3 ATX 80 PLUS GOLD [PSU]
Windows 10 Pro
My page file is set to Custom Size 16GB. The operating system is bare bones and I haven't overclocked the cards (mind you, this system is generating so much HEAT
... that I was reluctant to try to overclock it).
Is MSI Afterburner the preferred solution for improving performance?
Thanks for your help in advance.
