I don't think it's a fan setting issue. The fans get spinning pretty fast. Clearly audible. I have been using the OSD of MSI Afterburner to monitor temps and fan speeds during games. I think I recall the fan speed% getting up near 80-85% under load. Sounded like an electric hair dryer running in my case. At least 3 times the noise of my GB card. Not pleased with the noise or the temps.

I think I will try replacing the thermal compound with something decent and reseating the heatsink. If that doesn't help then I'll attempt to RMA it back to MSI.
