GPU fan spinning at 100% most of the time

Hi everyone!

I've had my computer for a bit more than 1 year now, and its a very powerful computer with no significant problems (except for a CPU fan which was very loud). But my graphics card is now spinning at 100% all the time (well 95% of the time). I took it to the place I bought it (A large danish computer shop) and I got it back 6 weeks later.
When I got it back, they had barely looked at it and did some minor testing on it. According to them, there were no problems on the computer, but they thought it would be a good idea to reset my computer and delete Windows.
When I turned the computer on, for the first time after the repair, the fan started spinning at full speed again, even though it wasn't running any heavy programs. Even when its idle and no programs are opened, its still very loud.

Is there anything I can do about this, that will not ruin my warranty (It was a very expensive computer - I payed 3500 dollars (16000 DKK) so I don't want to lose the warranty). I don't want to go back to the shop, so they can restart the computer once again and charge me 200 bucks.

The graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 7870 2 GB

Thanks.

try setting the fan speed profile in the utility of your cards manufacturer

Use a program called MSI Afterburner, it's a very simple program that allows you to overclock and change your GPU fan speeds.
