Welp. Just tried running my system on only one monitor. Core clock went down and so did idle temps. It is now idling at 38c with the idle clocks at 215MHz.

Wow. Who knew powering a second monitor would need that much power? I'm sticking with a single monitor setup from now on.

Thanks for all the help

I just saw a thread on the nvidia forums and the guy had the same issue with 3 monitors connected, he disconnected one then changed his 144hz to 120hz and problem went away.
I never knew this so I guess it's normal with 2 or more monitors.
