Overclocking and Incorrect/rejected shares
I recently started mining on my personal computer, hoping to get better results, I overclocked my GPU (I went from 48MH/s to 60MH/s) but after having done so, I started getting "Eth: Incorrect ETH share from GPU0" and "Eth: Share rejected in x ms" messages on the console, what does this mean?
(GPU is an RTX 3060 ti)
Its seems to be a widely known issue with the latest Nvidia drivers with people using Phoenix miner.
Using Phoenix Miner 5.5c Nvidia 461.40 drivers
The solution that worked for me was resetting the 3060ti to stock settings in MSI Afterburner. Starting phoenix miner and letting it run for a few minutes, then apply the usual overclocks, eliminates the incorrect shares issue for me.
I saw the solution from this reddit thread and it worked great. https://www.reddit.com/r/EtherMining/comments/khi084/rtx_3060_ti_incorrect_eth_share/
If your shares are rejected, they are malformed. This is in contrast to expired shares, which were simply shares that were sent too late (i.e. the block those shares were meant for was already mined).
My guess is that your memory clock isn't stable enough to support your higher core clock. Try to first maximize your performance (regardless of instability) with your core clock, and then sliding your memory clock higher until you get a stable miner. You can check with your pool to see if your rejected shares are minimized, after gathering data for a few hours.
Once you achieve stability, you can then try to reduce the power limit or core voltage in very small increments to decrease power consumption and heat generation. This is entirely optional but can increase your fan lifespan.
There is an easier way to changing to T-Rex or waiting for the dag, to config or arguments add this
let's say you have 3070's and 1080's if you write it like this
it will only affect 3070's, if you need to write 3060 ti there is a riddiculous bug, you have to start with alpha
RTX3060Ti if you write 3060*Ti it will not work.
What it doing is, it will not overclock your memories, and wait until dag creation.
