    Make me feel sad, I want to have a tantrum and shout "THERES NO POINT MINING ANYMORE!"

    I wont though

    well mine is still double what it used to be, used to average around £2.50-3.50 a day, it is currently saying £6 a day on a 5700xt

    same here, still better then the few days of craziness. Hopefully no one went out and overspent on silly priced gpu thinking it will stay high like that!

    If both BTC and ETH go to similar levels we could see this again very soon.

    Defi over-use and mega donations to charities can also continue.. in a few months miners wont be able to prosper on this.

    I read what he said and it did not compute.

    Hi all...

    I've just decided to use my Dell G5 Se to mine as its been sat in my room, barely being used.

    I've downloaded and installed nice hash, set everything up and it's currently mining away at 34MH/s. It says a rough profit of £3.20 per day.

    Is it as simple as that?

    Also, I had a benchmark error with the CPU and it won't mine. I'm guessing I should just disable CPU mining? It only estimates a hash rate of around 1MH/s with the Ryzen 4800H anyway and I get a bigger increase in GPU mining hash rate anyway due to thermals and smart shift.

    Yes as simple as that.

    Not worth mining with most CPUs, and you are correct better to disable it as it will generate more heat and impact GPU thermals.

    You'll want to lower your core clock and higher your memory clock using something like MSI afterburner if possible.

    Thanks, thought that would be the case.

    Unfortunately doing anything like that with the G5 SE is a nightmare due to the bios being rubbish. Msi afterburner doesn't work without a lot of messing around and I've never managed to get it to allow voltage / clock changes.

    Maybe once the laptop is out of warranty, I'll flash the bios and try.

    You should try and get the power % lower as it will draw more power and create heat that it doesnt need.

    Replaced the pads on my 3080 FE and it mines really well now. 86c memory at ~96 mh/s with only 225w.

    However, while gaming I noticed my GPU temps are about 5c *higher* than before?

    I used MX4 on the GPU. I may try and get some paste with better heat transfer.

    I think that's normal as you are now transferring more heat to the heatsink.

    I was afraid of that. I guess Nvidia had good reason for using "crappy" thermal pads. It makes for slightly better gaming benchmarks with a cooler GPU....just keep the memory "within spec" and otherwise let the GPU use all the heatsink's available cooling ability.

    Anyone using a 1080 and can share what they atre clocked at and hash rate?
