Default Should fan speeds adjust automatically?

Hi,
Sorry if this has been posted before, but I didn't see anything that was real similar to my question. I've got a BFG 6800 GT and was wondering if the fans are supposed to change speeds automatically to adjust to the GPU's changing temperatures. I installed RivaTuner which has a default of 53% for 2D and both 3D modes. However, it seems that the fan speed never changes no matter how hot the card gets, and instead I'm supposed to use RivaTuner to create my own profiles with fan speeds corresponding to temps.

Are the fans supposed to adjust to temps accordingly, and if so, do I need to change anything in RivaTuner to allow this to happen? I ask because my temps under load are around 70 C and I'm trying to bring it down.

Thanks
