Default GTX 580 dual screen weird issue, HELP!

Hi all,

I have just noticed something strange with my new setup and searching the net has not turned up any info that i would consider useful, just the usual fool going on about something they no little about, hence why I am posting here hoping someone can shed some light on this for me.

Anyways to cut a long story short my ASUS GTX 580 stock speed idles at around 58 degrees C. But when I switch back to one screen the temps drop back to around 41 - 45 degrees. Why is this happening? I have a Cosmos S case with 4 x 120mm exhaust fans 1 x120m front intake and a hugh side 200mm intake fan so it suprises me that I am getting temps this high and why with two monitors? 1 LCD is 22" @ 1680x1050 the other is a 24" @ 1920x1080. Is 58c too high? or something i should worry about. Again, searching on the net some people say 'yep its fine' others say 'hell no thats not good'. I know people here on nvnews know what they are on about so I would love to know for sure 'its ok'. but why with two screens would the temps be higher? very weird!
