Fifties is nothing to worry about. | Report abuse nibbler January 4, 2010 1:36:08 AM i thought cards these days don't really use any power just for 2D displaying, and 10C seems like a lot imo. Does anyone else uses 2 screens? does it affect temperature that much? | Report abuse sabot00 Graphics card Authority January 4, 2010 1:41:49 AM My 4670 idles at 38C running 1440x900, adding a 1024x768 HDTV doesn't change it at all. | Report abuse nibbler January 4, 2010 1:53:55 AM Weird... is there any other settings maybe? the only thing i've done is on windows display resolution -> multiple display -> extend these displays. and running ultramon. Or any driver settings that's making it do more work on the second display? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Card overheating on dual screen> Related ressources: ForumNew gaming rig problems!
