I have been into GPU mining for several years and have tried and tested many things to ensure highest return. One thing I had never seriously considered, however, was if liquid cooled GPU mining rigs could maximize profits.
Every miner is in the mining game to make a profit, but the main worry for is how to keep their GPU mining rigs cool. It’s not easy or cheap, especially in the warmer months.
I’m not a gamer, so I had never really thought it a necessity to invest in a liquid cooled system, but I live in a small apartment and was getting grief with the noise my 8 GTX 1070s were pumping out so I eventually decided to give them a try.
Liquid Cooled GPU Mining Rig
I had heard of liquid cooled GPU, but never really looked into it as it was all extra cost and since 2017 my ROI has obviously been tighter, so I finally tried it out last year. It’s been almost 12 months since I decided to try it out and I believe I am in a good place to offer some good advice.
GPU cooling fans are loud, especially if you share an apartment with your other half, and the smaller your apartment, the warmer it will get. With water having a higher thermal conductivity than air, it ensures the heat around the GPUs is cooler.
This allows you to remove the limiter and run your mining rig at a higher overclock speed, if you so wish. In doing so, it’s believed you can get up to about 20% more hashpower. Read More at MinedHash
