Was looking at my system temperature monitoring software and noticed that my GPU is idling (no GPU-intensive applications beyond Windows Aero) at 62 degrees Celsius. It's an Asus-Nvidia ENGTX260-Core216 running two monitors (1920x1080, 1600x900).
Is it supposed to idle this high? I just used MSI Afterburner to turn the fan up, and cool it to roughly 50 degrees. Doesn't seem like giving the fan more oomph than 61% really does anything.
On a side-note, anyone know of any free software similar to Asus' EPU-6 engine for automated power/fan/clocking management (for the computer in general, CPU/RAM/etc)? I'm not really sure it's doing the best job of keeping my computer's parts in good order after this spell.
