Thermal Interface Material. it's that white/grey/metallic stuff that goes in between the GPU and the heaksink

Oh i see. So you're suggesting that maybe the gpu wasn't mounted correctly to the heat sink? If so I'd rather try to get it replaced than mess with it myself. (even though I know how to use TIM well)

Having lots of cool air intake from the side or the bottom should lower your temps drastically.

As was mentioned, you could reseat the cooler and apply a fresh layer of TIM to the GPU, but if you have no problems with exchanging cards do that instead.

This is common for Multi Monitor setups... Your cards are forced into Low 3D Clocks with 3D Voltages. Has happened since 260.xx drivers sadly and so far has yet to be changed. I think it mostly has to do with the fact that the desktop has 3D Acceleration and the low clocks that GTX 400s/500s downclock to results in TDR's from instability with multiple monitors.

While it is true that the second monitor does raise clocks and temps, I can't imagine ~20C is normal. With one monitor, my GTX 570 hovers around 40C, and with two monitors, I was looking at 52C. Granted, he may have a higher ambient on top of poor airflow, but even still 20C is a large difference to have just by adding a second monitor.

Actually it can. With 1 monitor I idle around 37-41C and with 2 monitors I idle around 59-62C

This problem is at least partly related to running two monitors with differing resolutions and timings. If you use two similar monitors with equal timings and resolutions the power usage is very low:

The same happens with my GTX280, and I have two monitors with different resolutions. Guess Nvidia dont know how to fix it.

This. I haven't had 2 monitors, but when ATI upped the idle clocks in some of their drivers, my temp increased 20C.

Neither Nvidia or ATI can fix it any other way. I believe it's something about the card not being fed enough power or the clocks being too low to use such a high resolution.
