Liquid Cooled Immersion

Why Use Liquid Cooled Immersion?

Clock Speed, Hashrate and Profits

What are clock speed and hashrate? And how does it increase your profit?

Hashrate

Hashrate is the number of times per second that an ASIC miner “hashes” the data necessary to complete blocks in a network’s blockchain. Completing blocks involves verifying transactions and performing the encryption that secures the network.

Clock Speed

Clock speed is the rate at which ASIC microchips perform calculations. These calculations are measured by what is known as hashrate.

Clock Speed and Hashrate directly increase the rate at which your ASIC miner earns cryptocurrency.

ASIC miners are rewarded “Cryptocurrency” for verifying transactions!

Increasing clock speeds increases hashrate. More hashrate equals more transactions verified. More transactions verified equals more profit.

Overclocking And Thermal Limitations

How can you increase clock speed? Why doesn't everyone do it?

Thermal Limiters

Thermal limiters stop the ASIC miner from getting too hot.

When an ASIC miner is built, the manufacturer puts a limiter on its clock speed in order to protect the card from overheating.

If an ASIC miner reaches temperatures that its sensors deem unsafe, it will begin to decrease clock speed by “thermal throttling,” which impacts your mining efficiency. If overheated too much, the miner could even crash and suffer irreparable damage.

Overclocking

Overclocking is the action of increasing an ASIC’s clock speed. By running the ASIC miner at a higher speed than the standard clock speed, you can mine more efficiently.

After overclocking, the ASIC is free to operate at any clock speed the user desires.

However, faster clock speeds require more electricity, which generates more heat. By continuing to increase the clock speed, the ASIC will eventually get too hot for its bolt-on fans and reach its Thermal Limitations.

Exceeding Thermal Limitations of Overclocking with Liquid Cooled Immersion

Overcoming Thermal Limitations

Liquid Cooled Immersion

Liquid cooling solves the thermal limitations caused by overclocking. Liquid has a higher thermal conductivity than air. This means that liquid is better at moving heat than air, enabling a liquid submersed ASIC miner to use more electricity to increase the speed and profitability without reaching critical temperatures.
