I don't have the option for 59hz in my control panel for my main monitor (Dell 3007WFP-HC) but I do for my secondary display, which is currently set to 59hz. The moment I disable my secondary monitor the GPU starts to idle down to 51mhz. I did also notice that when dual monitors are enabled and the displays go to sleep, the card does idle at 51mhz.

It's not that big of a deal really since I don't leave this machine on 24/7 and the fact that the card idles properly when the displays are asleep is enough for me.
