Hi,

edit: Apparently miners are not that popular on these forums, so I point it out: IM NOT A MINER, I just wanted to try it with my gaming rig
Last Tuesday I started to mine ETH with my 3080FE using t-rex on ethermine. Yesterday I stopped it again and turned off the PC during the night. Today when I started my PC again my GPU instantly was at 50°C and in the Taskmanager it shows me that the GPU is using 1.5GB of dedicated VRAM in idle. I dont think that this is normal in any way. Because before my fans didnt even spin in idle and after some research I found out that it doesnt spin if the temp. is under 30°C. To mine I used these MSI Afterburner settings: https://prnt.sc/100llsx
If anyone has an idea, what I should try pls let me know. Thanks in forward,
Simon

malware scan the system?
already did.

BUT I already solved the problem, it was the Nvidia driver. After a clean install I know have 50°C with fans at 0rpm. I think thats quite normal.

I dont know how to close this thread so maybe u can?
