Hi,
I've got this GPU, Asus GTX590, its about a year old, and i haven't had any issues with it.
But after my latest format, its begun to run VERY hot.
When i use the computer, its idling just fine, 37C or something like that.
But when i get up at the morning, and the computer has been running all night, the GPU is at 80C, and when i start using the computer, it drops after a few minutes to 40C again.
Why is it getting that high, when the computer isn't being used, its just idling at night.

Thanks!

Can i do that without loosing warranty?

And, its only when its idling after some hours at night, not when i use the grafics..

Thanks.

Edit:
Just had breakfast, turned off the screen and went to the couch, after 4 minutes, i could hear the fan(s) go nuts, and my NZXT lcd fan monitor shows 63C on the outside of the GPU, and CPUID HWMonitorPro shows 81C on the kernel.. And after i turned on the screen, 2 minutes and its down on 40C again..

Why does it goes nuts immediately after i turn off the screen, i wonder.
