And also if it is fixed is there still a rise in temperature when using dual screens.
They released a new bios to fix it, but it didn't really do much. With two monitors installed the idle is still too high. From all accounts the idle is still in the 70's to 80's, which is absurd. In contrast my 480's with a single monitor idle at 44 and 41 respectively.
