    It has to do with the Sandy Bridge GPU sharing the processor die. Thus requiring more cooling power from the fan.

    Same thing happens with my Mini while botting AKA multitasking in WoW. :rolleyes:

    It's really nothing to worry about. Freak out if you idle and your fans are going full blast.
