The settings in this guide work for all RX 580s. The main difference between models and GPU to GPU is the Silicon Lottery. This means your GPU may perform worst or better based on your luck.
Please make sure to read the guide about overclocking basics to avoid any unnecessary damage and risk to your system. (Click Here)

RX 5xx and 4xx series are the most common cards used for mining because they are reliable, cheap and they had really good efficiency back to when they were leading the market.
If you have a 470, 480, or a 570. You might be able to use the same overclocks here by just tuning them a little more to work on your GPU.
RX 580s have always been good cards for mining and they do seem to rarely lose their value over time. Although, when it comes to Mh/Watt they are not the top option anymore.
Here are the RX 580 Mining Settings & Overclocks.
- Do NOT mine with Stock settings!!
- For AMD drivers I had the best luck using drivers version 20.4.2.
- We used OverDriveNTool to overclock in Windows 10.
- BIOS Modding is not required but it will boost your hashrate with 4-5 Mh/s
- Watts calculated in the software is not accurate with the actual power draw of the GPU. It is best to use Wattmeters for AMD Cards.
- The RX 580 Mining Overclocks that are provided here are a good place to start. You can still try to tweak it a little more if it’s stable, if not then just reduce the memory clock a little or increase your core voltage.
- When 2 different numbers are provided ex. +500 or 1000 that means one is for when you mine in Windows and the other is for a Linux-based Mining OS.
Any RX 4xx or 5xx series cards will require you to set on compute mode. So after installing your AMD Radeon Drivers, visit your AMD Drivers settings and set your RX cards on compute mode. This will improve your hashrate dramatically.
Compute Mode will need to be set through the AMD Radeon Settings.
Temporary BIOS Modding
If you are using Claymore Miner then you can use the -strap parameter and the -rxboost. It goes from -strap 1 to -strap 6.
Proper straps for different memory types:
- Hinyx is 1 or 4
- Micron is 2, 3 or 5
- Elpida is 1, 3 or 4
- Samsung is 2 or 5
- A rig with 2 Samsung Memory types and 1 Hinyx in this order:
Samsung, Samsung, Hynix > -strap 1,1,2
As for the –rxboost we recommend using the value of 20 or 30 – try both and see what works best for you.
If you are using different mining software, there will be different parameters. Please look into the Readme file of whichever miner you are planning to use and find out what they use for memory timing optimization.
Make sure to include the full path to the miner EthDcrMiner64.exe in your start.bat file so that the straps are applied successfully.
Learn more about different miners by following our Getting Started series for different mining software.
Claymore Miner is not supported anymore, please look through the instructions of which ever miner you end up using for memory timings. rxboost remaines the same.
Permanent BIOS Modding
Guide coming soon… It will help with Linux based mining systems or if you just want to flash your GPU BIOS permanently.
The RX 580 8GB model can be found brand new for $180 – $200 at the time of this post. which is a bit expensive for a GPU this old when it can be found used for a lot cheaper. We recommend scouring for used deals in your local markets (FB Marketplace, Offerups, Kjiji) or Ebay.
You can find it for $90 – $130 used but it does carry the risk of buying it off of a reseller. So please make sure to test it thoroughly before buying it and making sure that it is working properly. If the seller has a valid warranty, try to transfer it under your name as well.
