Adding the extra monitors causes the clocks to be higher than normal idle therefore producing more heat. Share sunnk June 23, 2012 7:56:11 AM temperature is rising because of gpu more usage like when we are playing games the temperature of gpu and cpu increases because of usage so when u are using three monitors the temperature increases.
