gputool --config not applying GPU settings



  • gputool --config are not applying GPU settings for two of my GPU's.

    I tried deleting the gpu-config.json and having gputool recreate it. I tried rebooting the server several times. Power limit settings are not sticking to two of my video cards.



  • Cards are different or the same? Which setup?



  • The rig is running 10 cards on an Asus B250 Mining expert.
    It's consists of two 1080TI's, one 1070 and the rest of the cards are 1070TI's.



  • I believe I'm having the same issue. Power settings are high and gpu temp is high since the config isn't applying. Please see my info below.

  • If you disconnect all but the cards giving you trouble, can you then apply the settings?



  • On the Asus B250 mining expert I was only able to get 9 Nvidia 1070s stable any more was a real pita check the Asus site for bios updates maybe they will release one that lets us use all of the 19 slots without using p106-100 cards



  • @itservices

    Mine work when I put the "+" sign in front of the values for NVCOffset and NVMOffset.

    Try this:
    "NVCOffset" : "+100",
    "NVMOffset" : "+720",



  • @oomph

    Those cards all have very different power limits. Please make sure they are within the correct ranges.

    For example, my cards (All EVGA), this is in Watts:

    GTX 1070 Power Range: 92 - 208 Power Default: 185 Current Setting: 120
    GTX 1070Ti Power Range: 90 - 217 Power Default: 180 Current Setting: 117
    GTX 1080Ti Power Range: 125 - 300 Power Default: 250 Current Setting: 162

    -MAL

    ETA: Also make sure the section you are working in applies to the correct card. Normal output from gputool --list should be the same order in the gpu-config.json file.

    Make sure to remove overriding fan/temp controls from the conf/pcfg. Look in the pcfg file for examples or view the videos "setting up profiles" or "editing confs"
