@ irkjab, it does? I thought it was just a monitor?

Yup, you can adjust fan speeds and overclock with Ntune. I don't think that it saves the settings though, so you'd have to reconfigure it after every reboot.

r u sure it wont burn the gpu if we manually increase the settings in ntune??? iam little afraid if my gpu will get burnt....

Turning the fan up in ntune won't fry your card.

I've never got an error like that. Does it work if you set the fan to 100%?

If it doesn't, try the fan settings on rivatuner.

You won't have any chance of damaging your card unless you try overclock it.

Try rivatuner

A good cleaning never hurts, either. Dust is your enemy.
