Anyone mining cryptocurrencies for fun? Any GPU Miners?

Just for fun, since ~2 years ago, I have started mining on my laptop that came with GeForce GTX 1660 TI graphic card.

My GeForce GTX 1660 TI laptop computer is giving a ETH hash rate of ~32 MH/s (8650/12/0 currently) and earning about $1.5-3 per day - mining Ethereum (ETH) and getting paid via Bitcoin (BTC) through NichHash.

I did need to tweak it a bit because straight as stock, it was doing only ~22 MH/s. Below is my current config:
nicehash config GTX 1660 TI.png
Memory clock 1900 @ 7901 MHz
GPU clock -400 @ 1200 MHz
Voltage 100
Running 64C

I could have adjusted it better and optimize it more, balancing the complication vs. benefits, because over the years, I have needed to change my GPU fan twice, it was not an overheating issue, the fan blades simply started dying to spin or to keep spinning, as if there was a loose metal stuck (and sounding like there was).  :-\ 

Honor is far greater than glory, titles, man-made statuses, & materialistic possessions. 👁 🦅 🛡 ⚔️

More than 32 MH/s with

Memory clock 2000 @ 6001 MHz
GPU clock -200 @ 1860 MHz
Voltage 0
Fan Auto
Running 61C

Sorry for the bump of this old thread, but I am curious who is still mining now after ETH moved to POF? And if there are people that still do it, what do you mine?

Cheers!

Very good question! and no worries about thread bumps!
I haven't mined for about 6 months myself.
Nothing is stable and mining for profit is not feasible with maintenance up-costs.
Pooled mining options also do not help much to gain as they used to.

I am thinking of just investments in crypto and +/- hobby mining. That's all I have thought of and started again today.
