Default loud graphics card fan

hey TF.
i got a problem with my graphics card fan. i turn the pc off at night, and in the morning when i turn it on again the fan is really loud. but it only happens after the computer has been off for over an hour. ive cleaned every bit of dust out of it but its still making this awful noise. can anyone suggest a problem? its a 6600gt.
