Pascal Eth hash rates sink

I pulled out some old Pascal cards and connected them to a spare system to mine Eth. I've been using Claymore version 15. With 1070s and a 1060, the cards start where they should be in hashrate, then drop after a few minutes. The 1070s drop from about 26MH/s to 10-12, and the 1060 drops from 15MH/s to single digits. Even with the 470.05 driver that doesn't enforce the limiter on the 3060, the Pascal cards still drop.

I tried first on an X470 system, then a B450 board with the same results.

Suggestions?

Stock speeds. Tried mem OC by 600MHz and dropping GPU speed as low as Afterburner will go. Hashrate still drops regardless of overclock/underclock. Temp limit set to 76C.

Weird. My 1080 and 1080ti's are flying along. Rock solid, using the newest driver release and overclocked.

1080 is doing 32 and the 1080tis are 44-45.

Have you tried gminer?

miner --algo ethash --server daggerhashimoto.USA-East.nicehash.com:3353 --user address.rigname --proto stratum --pass x

I'll give that a try - thanks.

Edit: That did it. Thanks again!

I would try a linux distro and try overclocking the core speeds, that seems to help now with them.

Also, if you get any 1080s make sure to use the eth enlargement pill or something to address TLB issues

I get 28-29MH/s on my 1070s of various types. Here are my settings:
+250MHz on core
1100-1300MHz on memory (depending on card)
140W power limit

Claymore is very very dead at this point - different mining software should buff you out.
