Default Re: multiple monitors, higher GPU temperature

Composite enabled + Kwin effects.

I'm on a light load right now: some browser windows in different virtual desktops, a text editor, nvidia settings app, Konsole open with 2 tabs, etc.
Temp is at 61C, performance level=2 (maximum), adaptive.
Room temp ~30C, since outside is 28C (typical Spanish mediterranean weather).

I only reach 8XC temperatures on full load (playing a 3D game in fullscreen, etc).
ok, so it seems that running different on screen resolution does not affect others.
Im not sure what to say: simple it does not make sense unless the driver or the
VBIOS itself it is a crap.


X Screen 0: LG Electronics W2242 (DFP-2) 1680x1050 pixels (490x321 millimeters)
X Screen 1: LG Electronics L1953HR (DFP-1) 1280x1024 pixels (382x302 millimeters)

Depth: 24 -> GPU Temp: 86C. Board Temp: 66C. Mem Temp: 79C.

The system is idle. Just browsing the web, no flash, no video nor audio playing.
Go figure.

I will open with nvidia a ticket and probable with PNY and if not I have to change the
card !
