Default Re: Temperature increase with Multiple Monitors?

The reason is, when the card detects multiple monitors, it clocks the GPU up to 405 MHZ and the RAM up to full 3D speeds. The reason for that though is anyone's guess...

As I said before, I can see the the reasoning for x2 the speed for x2 the pixels or so, but why it needs to clock up over 8 times and run the RAM up to full speed is beyond me.
