How to overclock your GPU for mining

How to overclock a graphics card for mining

First and foremost, you need to install overclocking software. 

This program works on all GPUs regardless of the brand and allows you to modify all settings, like fan speed, fan curve, overclocks, temperature limit, and many other settings.

The core settings for overclocking:

  • Fan speed. In most cases, you need to auto set up it, because extremely high settings may damage your fan.
  • Core voltage. This setting controls the voltage input of the core GPU, and it doesn’t require any change. Considerable shifts can lead to overheat and instability.
  • Power limit. It controls how much power your GPU can eat. Set it up to 85% – 100%.
  • Core clock (MHz). This is the core GPU speed. Set it up between -75 and -100.
  • Memory clock (MHz). The critical setting for mining. Apply between +400 MHz and +800 MHz. Remember, that you need to increase this setting gradually by 100, then mine for 10 minutes and repeat incasing until any instability occurs.
  • Temperature limit. Try finding out the max temperature you can have before the shutdown. Usually, 70 C – 85 C works fine.

Begin the overclocking process

The process of GPU overclocking is quite easy. Just follow the steps described below:

  1. Install and open MSI Afterburner.
  2. Unlink Power Limit and Temperature Limit.
  3. Set Power Limit
  4. Set Core Clock
  5. Set Memory Clock
  6. Click Checkmark to apply settings
  7. Save
  8. Mine for 10 minutes and make sure the hashrate is unaffected

Still, keep in mind that overclocking may lead to hardware overheating, reduces the lifespan of a graphics card, and increases the noise level. As well, there is a risk to damage your GPU.
