    GPU overheating with external + notebook monitor active [G73S]

    I usually use my G73SW with external 21 inch monitor connected via HDMI and notebook monitor turned off.

    GPU temperature hovers around 35-40 degrees idle. When playing games the temperature goes to 50-60 degrees.

    When I use both 21` monitor and notebook monitor, the GPU temperature is around 55-60 degrees idle and only shows 3% GPU usage in process monitor.
    (windows background on both monitors and no programs active).

    It stays the same even when I play a game.

    Is this normal?
    Why is it overheating so much when I have no programs active on notebook monitor?

    Is there a way to fix this?
