Oh no, heat is not a problem, I guess.
It just bothers me that the clock of the dGPU rises to 3D-mode, even though im doing light Office/Browsing-Work. I'd expect more from a Technology like Optimus, since it's meaning was to use power as it is needed.
My CPU is at +-50°C. Two external 1080p Monitors (VGA and Displayport), BIOS 1.26 with default BIOS Fan Control (no TPFC)
What is the System Performance setting in your Power Manager Plan?

I havn't changed anything there. I'm always running on AC Power.
I think it is by design that the graphics card needs to run in 3D mode when running multiple displays. My NVIDIA card in my Workstation does the same.
EDIT: I have to correct my Statement about Temperature:
One external 1080p Displayport, Nvidia 2D-Mode: ca. 50°C
Two external 1080p VGA + DP, Nvidia 3D-Mode: ca. 57°C
both on BIOS 1.26, Power manager as shown above
