How to overclock video cards in different operating systems?
Overclocking RTX 6700 XT on Windows
To overclock video cards in Windows, use MSI Afterburner. This is a free graphics card overclocking utility from MSI. Download MSI Afterburner from the official website and install.
Run the program and make sure that the correct video card is selected (in case you have more than one card). If you have several identical cards, you can combine the settings for all video cards at once. Enter the “Settings” menu (gear icon) – “General” – check the box next to the “Synchronize settings of the same GPU” option.
Let’s start overclocking. If for some reason the sliders for changing frequencies and voltage are not available, go back to the “Settings” menu (gear icon) – “General” – check the box next to the “Allow video adapter control and monitoring” option.
- We change the core frequency (Core Clock) – change the slider of the same name Core Clock (Mhz).
- We change the memory frequency (Memory Clock) – change the slider of the same name Core Clock (Mhz).
- We change the food limit (Power Limit) – change the slider of the same name Power Limit (%).
All the values to be guided by in the table above.
Overclocking RX 6700 XT in NiceHash
If you mine with Nicehash, overclock your video card with Msi Afterburner, as described above.
Overclocking RX 6700 XT in Hive OS
We register in Hive OS. Using our link and the “InsidePC” promo code, you get $ 10 on your balance. For a guide to setting up and running mining on Hive OS, study it on the website.
STEP 1 – Choosing a farm. In the Farms tab, select the desired farm.
STEP 2 – Choosing a worker. We go to the required worker (workers), which contains 6700 XT.
STEP 3 – Overclocking window. Each map in the barn (worker) has a speedometer icon, as well as a common speedometer icon for all maps in the barn (worker). You can overclock or tune a specific map, or all maps at once, by selecting the speedometer marked ALL. Here you can set the overclocking settings for all Nvidia or AMD cards.
STEP 4 – Overclocking and tuning… We register the overclocking values. ATTENTION !!! In Hive OS and further in Rave OS, the process of overclocking the memory clock (Memory Clock) is different from overclocking in Windows. You add frequency multiplied by 2. That is, if you need to add + 150Mhz from memory, we add 300Mhz. Thus, we will increase the memory frequency by + 150Mhz.
- Next, you need in the field “+Core Clock Mhz»Set the overclocking value for the core. Here the absolute value, if you need to add + 100Mhz, add + 100Mhz.
- In field “Memory Clock, Mhz»Set the overclocking values from memory (remember, the frequency is multiplied by 2).
- Power Limit – the power limit is indicated in watts, not as a percentage as in MSI Afterburner. How do you know your consumption? Look in the table above the consumption in watts opposite the hash rate and set such a limit, and then test, if necessary, add or decrease.
If the hashrate values are far from the tabulated one, make sure that you set the voltage limit correctly, the card may not have enough voltage and it will underestimate the frequencies and hashrate.
Step 5 – Save Changes… Click “Apply” to save.
Overclocking RX 6700 XT in Rave OS
First of all, register with Rave OS. We will be grateful if you register using our link, it will greatly help the development of the site. If there are difficulties with this system, mining in Rave OS is described on the site.
Step 1 – choosing a worker… Go to the Workers tab.
Step 2 – setting up the worker… We go to the settings of the worker (Edit worker).
Step 3 – overclocking and tuning… Go to the Tunning masonry. And we set the values for overclocking:
- In the Core Clock offset, Mhz field, set the value of the core frequency.
- In the Memory Clock offset, Mhz field, set the value of the video memory frequency, this works the same as in Hive OS, multiply the frequency by 2. That is. if you need + 150Mhz, set 300Mhz.
- Power limit, W – power limit in watts. The power limit is indicated in watts, not as a percentage as in MSI Afterburner. How do you know your consumption? Look in the table above the consumption in watts opposite the hash rate and set such a limit, and then test it if you need to add or decrease it.
Step 4 – Save Changes… Click the “Save & Apply” button.
Important overclocking information!
We take the values for overclocking and adjusting the card from the table above. These are optimal values for a good hash rate and a relatively energy efficient mode. Nobody restricts you from independently studying the limit of your card. You can increase the frequencies to increase the hashrate, or decrease the power limit to reduce consumption.
HOWEVER REMEMBER, YOU DO ALL THESE PROCEDURES AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!
How do you know if the card is overclocked or lacks voltage?
If you have unsuccessfully overclocked your graphics card, you may see one of the following signals:
- Artifacts on the screen in the form of stripes, squares, and other geometric shapes.
- Screen flickering.
- Invalid balls.
- Dump the card.
Most often, you shouldn’t worry about this, this is the normal behavior of the video card when trying to find the maximum overclocking capabilities of the card.
RX 6700 XT profitability calculator
For the current mining profitability on RX 6700 XT cards, see the Whattomine website.
RX 6700 XT Mining Performance
Energy Efficiency in Ethereum Mining
Energy efficiency of the RX 6700 XT – 0.35 MH / W.
How to calculate energy efficiency? Divide the capacity in MH / s by the consumption W.
Consumption of watts per 1 megahash in Ethereum mining
RX 6700 XT — 2,91W.
Consumption for 1 Mh / s is considered as dividing the consumed watts by the number of megahashes.
Cost for 1 megahash in money
You can calculate this indicator for yourself, for this, divide the cost of the card by the number of megahashes.
