Good point. To check this assumption I started some very computation-demanding
quantum chemistry calculations without graphics, and it also raised the GPU
temperature by about 14-15 deg C.
Obviously this is very hardware-depending. You may want to check it in your
compy. The above mentioned Open Hardware Monitor is very friendly, it does not
install anything, you have simply to copy
it to somewhere and start the exe file.
