i7 870 

R9 270x 

8gb DDR3 Mem 

I have the latest drivers (16.10.1) my 270x just ramps up to a higher clock and higher temps for no apparent reason when system is idle so I took some troubleshooting steps as follows 

1)Reinstalled drivers 

2)Clean Reinstalled Win 10 

3)Virus checked(Avast,Avg,Avira,Malwarebytes etc) 

At new driver/windows install the temps and clocks are fine and low(34C idle) but when i add a second display the temps and clocks shoot up and remain high even with a system restart 

Someone please help me.
