This question has been asked before. Recent nvidia chips are lets say modular. Features can be disabled when they are currently not needed to safe power. As someone from nvidia said on linux more features are enabled by default. Not sure if this is a real driver bug or something that can't be done otherwise. Anyway the problem is not frontrusting. You might find 67C degrees high but that isn't as it is the temperature INSIDE the gpu and not a sensor very close to it. Useally with cpu monitoring apps or other things they are measurin the temperature close to the cpu but not inside. The temperature difference is easily 10C-15C.

How did you get the temperature in that small box in the top right hand corner that is way cool.

I sent an email about this to bfgtech and here is their reply:

"the peak usage temps we have seen on normal are around 92C while playing
doom 3 . The idle temp you have is very normal also . Their is nothing that
you should have to worry about with those temps .
Thanks again and if you have any other questions please email us back or
call or live support at 8662343499"

I'm still not happy about this because of the added heat that the card puts into my tower but aparently there is nothing we can do about it.

How much of these temperatures differrences are actually real. Looks like to me that they are just calibrated wrong.
It would be interesting to see back to back temperatures because there is a 4 degree offset in ambient temperature also.
Anyhow without bieng able to verify these tempratures with proper messuring equipment it is safe to say that they are not to be taken too seriously. and be treated as mere referrence.

The heat produced is real. It raised the idle temps of my cpus almost 10C. However, I bought an "nv silencer 5" and that really helped the heat problem. Linux idle temps are about 61 now and it peaks at about 68. In windows its a bit cooler 3-4C. And my cpu idle temps are about 5C lower now too.
