My miner is runnig for a few days and today i checkt the power consumption with a special device. The consumption is around 575 Watts. I had assumed that it will be around 300 Watts. Why is the consumption this high and how kan i fix it ?
Rig: 2x MSI Radeon RX 470 8G
Intel Core i5 4460
4GB Corsair 1600 MHz
Corsair 60 GB SSD
Corsair RM750x Gold
flags --cl-global-work 8192 --farm-recheck 200
Mining arround 42 MH/s.
How can help me?
Update: I orderd a third card from another supplier. It's from a diffrent batch as well. I swapped al the cards tried them single, double and with three of them. It doesn't matter or i swap the card from different batches i get the same power consumption every time.
Minig with only 1 card: 305 Watt. Minig with 2 cards: 570 Watt Minig with 3 cards: 819 Watt.
This doesn't seem right
