Graphics card fan

I just bought a ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT for my computer and the fan is hella loud. Is there anyway you can change the fan out for a quite one or something like that? Anyone got any suggestions?

Go into Catalyst Control Center>enable overdrive>check the fan speed.

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.

Hmmm. I've never dealt w/ those, only the 48xx cards. I kinda figured that would be an option for all the ATI cards.

So you're not able to enable OD?
