Just added a Radeon XFX RX 570 8gb to my small farm and was wondering if I really needed to bios mod it. It has the dual bios switch and when I installed it, I switched it over to mining mode. Plugged it in to my Hive and out of the box I got 29.59 with my existing settings on RX 570s I had. I never did anything other than plug it in. I have adjusted it in hive a little and now hashing 30.47 with no issues other than to me it seems a little warmer than the other cards. Showing on hive to be drawing 85w. Just mining Ethash right now. Should I just leave it alone?
if it is mining between 28-31 u r good to do
just watch the heat
the lower degree & the lower fan speed, the better for the card to live
60c~ is good
70s is not good much
good fan speed 60%-65%
Thanks. Yeah I’m staying pretty much at 65-69c with about 47% fan getting 30.4 mhs and thats without the a/c going yet. Card does run a little warmer than my other RX570s so I might go ahead and flash it to see if it changes it much.
