Today on That Techo Guy, I will be showing you how I will overclock my CPU which is an Intel i7-5820k on an ASUS X99-Pro mainboard, to increase my mining hashrate!
The questions are… Will it be worth overclocking your CPU to increase your mining hashrate?
Is it worth it when it comes to electricity consumption when overclocked vs the stock settings of the CPU?
Is it even worth CPU mining at stock CPU settings?
Check out the video to find out!
This is a rather long video, I hope I do not bore you too much, but I wanted to try to explain this in as much detail as possible! 🙂
For reference, the energy meter I am using is the TP-Link HS110 which is being broadcasted from my phone on screen during the screen capture.
I am using the unMineable pool for mining in this video and XMRig. If you would like to use my referral code to reduce your mining fee on unMineable from 1% to 0.75% then here it is: 477e-hhvu

Let me and everyone know if you manage to achieve a substantial increase in hashrate when overclocking your CPUs, with a reasonable power consumption increase, so that we can all learn together!
Thanks for your support and take care!
