Default Re: Temperature increase with Multiple Monitors?

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.
I would wait for some updated drivers.
