The RTX 3060 Mining Settings will generally work for all models, but most of the time you will have some tweaking to do due to your GPU Silicon. Never mine with Stock settings as they will overheat your GPU! You can learn more in our Overclocking For Miners Guide.
RTX 3060 Mining Overclocks
Absolute Values are most commonly used in Linux-based Mining OS and they usually give more effeciency, while Offset is more common for Windows. N/A or 0 = leave blank.

Setting an Absolute Frequency helps with reducing your power draw and it can be especially useful for your RTX 3060.
Frequently Asked Questions
How to overclock my GPU for mining?
Overclocking for mining can be tedious, a lot of trial and error. You can use our mining settings as a base and if they crash then you can start slowly decrementing Clock values and slowly increment your Power Limit/Watt Limit until your GPU is stable.
Is mining harmful to my GPU?
Yes and No. The number one reason for Hardware failure is heat. If you can maintain good temperatures and take care of your GPU properly then your GPU will live with you longer than you can ask for. Your fans might break on you but that is always an easy fix.
How to reduce my GPU Temperature for mining?
There are a few things you can do to maintain healthy GPU Temps such as regularly dusting (Recommended Duster) and replacing Thermal Paste throughout the year, but what really stands out for me is using Heatsink Mods. It works especially well for the 3000 Series by bringing down temperatures by up to 20 degrees!
How much power does my GPU use while mining?
Your GPU power draw varies based on the algorithm you are mining, The best way to accurately know is through measuring your Rig/PC off the wall using Power Meters.
