Default Re: Temperature increase with Multiple Monitors?

I currently run a gtx 480 with dual monitors from about 8 hours a day( I freelance from home). I live in south florida and my home a/c is set to 76 F. My card idles in the lower 80's with stock fan profiles (i've tried making my own profile and it WILL cool the card further, but at the cost of extra fan noise which I cant deal with, i rather have it running couple degrees hotter, but quieter). Yes my room gets slightly hotter then my previous generation of cards, thankfully i have a clg fan. Overall, I do not recommend this card for dual monitor workstations, unless u plan on gaming on it. Now, gaming is a different story, I absolutely love the performance.
