This card is last gen now, but it is still pretty good for lower power mining rigs. It takes a bios mod to get to the full potential of the card.
Overclocking the RX 580 for mining is different from other cards such as the likes of the NVIDIA RTX / GTX Series of cards because with the AMD older generation cards you need to tweak the BIOS.
Doing these BIOS tweaks can give you as much as another 5 MH/s in Ethereum.
Bios Modding the RX 580
Overclocking the RX 580
So let’s get started on this overclocking adventure! This assumes you are mining on Windows. You will need Windows installed or you’ll need to install the RX580 in a Windows machine to do the BIOS patching.
However, once that’s done you can run Linux or Simple Mining OS after the fact if you prefer. Patching the drivers is not required for Simple Mining OS. I would also note, that it most likely voids your GPU’s warranty if you do any of this. So it’s up to you to make the decision if you’re OK with that possibility.
Next, in tis section we will go through overclocks.

You can still pick these cards up pretty easily – I have 8 of them and no problems so far.
