    Never tried running it in a vm.
    You can use something like Hiveos and run it off a usb flash drive or usb ssd and you would just restart and boot into hiveos instead of windows. Should give you more safety

    does it support undervolting in any way? Even basic power limits for your card?

    I’m thinking of a vm under windows. Nvidia drivers are supposed to support vms or something now. That way I can undervolt in windows and have the vm take advantage. Maybe a weekend project for me.

    Hiveos will allow you to undervolt / overclock and set fan profiles

    This is what it looks like for my vega system.

    Edit
    Just want to say this is accessible from any web browser or their app. So you don't have to deal with linux. Its really easy to set up

    Are those settings for the GPU #0 - Vega 56 what you are using live because 40.52 MH/s is very low for a Vega 56?

    I am getting 49.33 MH/s on Vega 56's with stock BIOS (118 watts) with these settings on mmpOS:

    Core: 995 MHz
    Mem: 950 MHz
    Core Volt: 815 mv
    Mem Volt: 875 mv
    Tune: med (ethash)
    Controls Fan by: agent

    In MMPOS I selected the latest TeamRedMiner v0.8.1 for mining ETH

    In the Rig Miner Configuration - default I have these settings:

    Fan Management: agent (temperature based)
    Mininum fan speed: 45%
    Target temperature: 65c
    Target Memory temperature: 75c

    I also want to point out that mmpOS also allows accessible from any web browser. So you don't have to deal with linux. It is really easy to set up. I also like that you can put it on a USB stick and boot from it. All configuration is done via a browser.

    I can get better numbers off the vega 56 but as you can see its labeled living room. So my wife doesn't want the single fan on it sounding like a jet engine in the middle of our common area lol. But the new 3070 i put in her machine is doing 63Mh and the vega 56 will go in my brother in laws shed where he is building out a mining rig. He has two 580s so this vega 56 will be a nice surprise.

    I don't really want to pay for a mining os because I only have the one gpu and it doesn't seem like it'd be worth the cost. Does anyone know if gpu passthrough works when running a linux vm on a windows host? It seems like the new nvidia drivers allow a linux host to run a windows vm with passthrough, just don't see anything about it working the other way.

    btw anyone tried converting ETH mining software into UWP app and run it on XSS or XSX in dev mode?

    EDIT:
    currently mining with nicehashquickminer on GTX 1660 Super and got 25-27MH/s (and ~29MH/s if on fresh reboot with nothing else running) running at 1380mhz core, 7601mhz ram.

    other people says they got 30-31MH/s.... gotta try hiveos faster or not.

    • Core Voltage (VDD): NA
    • Power Limit (%): 60% or 80 (W)
    • Core Clock (CClock): -200
    • Memory Clock (MClock): +900
    • Fan Speed (%): 70% or more/less based on your temps.

    That's actually interesting. I would have thought it would only have an impact on system performance if you were running a game, or does it record your desktop? I have all of that stuff disabled, so I never would have noticed.

    I set it to record everything including desktop because it keeps missing games. Probably because I play games in borderless fullscreen instead of exclusive fullscreen?

    Ah probably simply because I'm a magnet for bugs LOL

    mmpOS is Free to use for up to 8 GPU's. I have two rigs with seven Vega 56's and it is free for me.

    this is a double-edged sword... I no longer play PC games since i used it to mine. Every time i want to play, i keep thinking "money... me want money...", then i turned on PS4 and got annoyed with how slow and loud it is...

    is there a doge mining calculator? How many doge will a GTX 1660S gets? and what software to use? it seems Hive OS didn't have doge? I assume its because mining doge is still unprofitable despite the recent hike?

    doge is only profitable with ASICS, I think.

    so, i'm trying to move away from nicehash, turns out its a headache.

    • Ethermine pool have 1% fees, no payment fees, but lower per block reward. So good for frequent small payments. E.g. mining with 1x GTX 1660 S @ 30-31MH/s.
    • Flexpool have 0% fees, undisclosed payment fees, higher per block reward. So good for those with big money E.g. minng with multiple GPU with hundreds of MH/s.

    any other pool? that works better for GTX 1660 S with 0.02 ETH payment target?
