Any idea why this could be? Is that bad?
By the way, the temp goes up after I connect second monitor.
Unless you live in the sahara desert, the tropics or death valley in the usa, the temp of 64c at idle is way too high for your card !
And even if you do live in extreme heat, it is most important that you improve the airflow around you card to reduce temps ?
If you dont live in extreme heat, then only other possability is that your card's heatsink is not working properly. Either the fan is not working, or there is bad contact between heatsink surface and GPU chip ?
