Default XFX 6950 Non-Ref 2G Full fan speed

Hello,

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

Thanks!

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?

Thanks,
Ray
