My GPU runs at about 45C regularly, but when my monitor goes to sleep after a few minutes I wake it up and the computer is reporting the card to be 120+C!! I haven't been able to determine if the fan stops on sleep or not, on top of that I have sleep disabled in windows, BIOS, and the monitor does not have it's own sleep function. Will let you know if the fan stops as soon as the monitor goes to sleep.

Ok. So the fan doesn't stop or seem to slow down at all.... but after about 10 mins the card is 102C.
Any ideas?
And why is my monitor to sleeping in the first place when it's disabled?

Here's Speccy. No make and model, something I put together. Nothings changed in awhile.

Power Options are always on.... monitor, hard disks, and standy are all set to never (turn off), and hibernation is disabled.
