The question is in the title, i want to do this because my gpu is getting too hot and it’s smelling like burnt when i start mining
Hello, sorry, there is currently no performance limiter built in in Salad. You may find a third party app for that, however undervolting/lowering the power limit and downclocking your card may yield better results.
Actually, it is possible. If you are using windows, open task manager, right click your miner, and click open details. Then right click the miner in the details, and hover over ‘set priority’ and click ‘low’ or ’below normal’
