That's odd. I didn't get that large of an increase, but then again, looking at your sig, it seems like you have a much higher overclock than I do so I think that makes sense. Or does this happen without any overclock at all?

This was at stock clocks when I just got the card

The same happens with my GTX280, and I have two monitors with different resolutions. Guess Nvidia dont know how to fix it.
The temps have to be at least in the realm of being negligible otherwise having two ports on one card would not make sense. Saying that, if I had to choose between an OC gpu or multi-monitor I would rather have the latter.

Ignorance being bliss I have been satisfied with running dual monitors with different resolutions. In fact, I run one in portrait mode.

Im running of a 4870 and my idle temp (min/max) is 48c/51c. Keep in mind that my room temp is 14c.

Interesting. Thanks for your input. I didn't know it was possible to have that wide of a difference as one of the first things I did when I got my card was to adjust the fan profile for better cooling at higher temps, and better noise at lower temps. Therefore, my increase was a lot narrower in comparison.

Seems a little odd that I am running 2 monitors on a ocd gtx480 (ocd more than it already came) and I'm idling at around 45-50c.

That's what made me wonder about such a large difference as well, but do you also have a modified fan profile? That might attribute to some of the difference if the OP is still using the stock profile. Then again, if the OP has poor airflow that could attribute to the rest of the difference - besides just having bad luck of getting a poorly seated/TIM'ed card.

It is a bug with Nvidia drivers they they never bothered to fix it. Please do not post fairy tales such as "Both Nvidia and ATI do this so you don't get screen corruption on the 2nd monitor." It is not true. Dowload Nvidia Inspector and setup a 2D and 3D profile for you card. If you like watching high definition movies you may want to set up a third profile somewhere between 2D/3D clocks to prevent choppiness.

I have multiple cards from Nvidia and ATI cards with multi-monitors. Multiple monitors raised idle core and memory clocks and increased temperatures.

Recent ATI cards I have owned:
- 4870
- 5770
- 5870 Tri-CF
- 6850
- 6870

Recent Nvidia cards I have owned:
- 460 SLI
- 470 SLI
- 480 SLI

The only one living a fairy tale is you. Know your role before you question other people's integrity.

Nvidia raised 2D desktop clocks because of GDDR5 glitches when it comes to multi-monitor usage. If 2D clocks are not raised in a multi-monitor setup, the secondary monitor gets flickering and flashing windows (i.e. corruption).

Our fan control is set to not start increasing fan until we're up near the 80's, so the higher temp is actually by design to keep the acoustics lower."

This is a known problem for cards running 2 displays at different resolutions. If they were the same resolution, your temps would be way lower. My GTX460 is at 32c idle running 2 displays at the same resolution, it'd be way higher if I swapped one of my screens for a bigger one.

Have you even bothered to adjust the clocks yourself? If you want to live with a blower next to your year, congratulations. I presented a solution but obviously you missed this part. Thanks!
