Default GPU fans speeding up/idle

So I noticed last night that my new GPU (ssc 970) fans were going crazy fast when my monitor went into sleep mode. Nothing running in the background etc.

Any ideas why?

Thanks.

Did you try reinstalling drivers?

Nope. Think it will make a difference?

It could reset the cards settings. Remember, the drivers are store in C:Nvidia, so no redownloading needed.
