    I removed it and cleaned as you suggested. Made a slight difference during the game but none what so ever at alt tab. The reason I'm in windows mode is because of the bug with not being ably to get back in game after minimizing.
    I was wondering if a few people could also test this on their own pc? I'll test more after work today

    Not getting any issues with the GPU doing strange things with alt-tab here, no increase in memory usage or GPU usage going ballistic.. that's in full screen or windowed.. and I can't say I've seen anyone else reporting this issue.
    I assume you are only getting this with PC2, no other games? You also haven't mentioned what version of Windows you are on

    Windows 10, thanks for trying it. After a few google searches there are a lot of reports of this in other games. Running full screen now with no issues the temp drops back to idle when I alt tab now must be a windowed thing.
