Hello all, I recently built myself a new computer and I ran a test with PC Wizard 2010 and found that my GFX card fan was at 40%. I don't know quite well the anatomy of GFX card fans so I thought I would ask here. Should I increase it? If yes, then how do I increase it? I mean my temperatures are fine, but would there be a performance difference if I increase it? (If I can) Below is the readings that I got.

Your fan speed only affects temperatures, unless your temperatures are getting very high(90-100C) and causing your system to heat throttle manually increasing the fan speed wont give you a performance boost and automatic fan profiles are usually decent.
