XFX 6950 Non-Ref 2G Full fan speed

I just build a completely new rig with new parts, and when I powered it on I noticed that my video card fan was running at 100%. (I think it's at 100% cause it's really loud!) I installed Windows despite the loudness, and it is still running @ 100% fan speed. Anyone know what the problem can be?

Here are the specs of my build:

Asus P8Z68-V PRO
Intel I52500K
8GB Corsair Vengeance LP
Corsair AX750 PSU
XFX Radeon HD 6950 800MHZ 2GB 5.0GHZ

install aida64 and check the fan speed.

or xfx's own utility,which shoul probably let you control it as well

you did install drivers right?>

Hello again,

So I re-installed all the drivers and catalyst. The fan speed is still going at full speed. I then go into the AMD Overdrive mode, and it says my fan speed is at 24% which I do not think is possible... because it's VERY LOUD it says my GPU temp is 34 degrees Celsius. I went into manual fan mode, but even if I change the speed, I can still hear that the fan doesn't change it's RPM.

Could it be because of my motherboard or something to do with it's BIOS?

ok so from boot til lthe end of time the fan sounds the same with no change?

overdrive doesnt always work.

whats that utility..trixy or something? i usually let the drivers do there jobs.
