Noticed something recently when i play games on my dual monitor setup.

When running a game and not having anything else open, my CPU will have peak temperatures at about 73-75c

but if I run the same game with about 30 chrome tabs open, as long as i have a video running fullscreen on the 2nd monitor
my peak temperatures drop to 65-67c.

have tested this several times, if i pause the video the temperatures climb, but when i start the video again they drop back down...

anybody else seen anything similar?

This is caused by a decreased framerate on your game, there is a weird synchronisation of your framerate ingame and your video framerate when you watch a video on your second screen

My framerate is still the same in both instances, never drops below 60.

My main monitor is 100 Hz and my 2nd monitor is 144 Hz, if that means anything.
