Default loud gfx fan

i have an agp pny 6600gt, it has a very loud fan and i was wondering if there was a program i could use to make the fan slower, also i cant see the gfx card temperature in pcwizard and was wondering if a bios upgrade for the card would do anything

Maybe you can replace the stock heatsink and fan with an aftermarket one, like Zalman. I too cannot see the temperature of my gfx card in pcwizard or other programs...I was told my gfx card doesn't have a sensor.

thats the price you have to pay for good setup though lol my 7900 GT sounds like a cd drive is running all the time. all i can think is that there is an option in the bios but last time i checked some companies disabled this feature.
