Default Re: 169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100

It may help to compile nvclock from source instead of installing the default binaries. Following this howto, I got my 8800gt working great on Debian.
Updating to nvclock version 0.8beta3a did help in that it now recognizes my card, but it still can't adjust my fan speed

aria ~ # nvclock -f -F 40
Uknown Winbond vendor: ff
Error: Your card doesn't support fanspeed adjustments!
I did find a pretty equivalent solution though: I lined the cabinet my box sits in with carpet! Acoustically, it did a lot to quiet the fan. Air can still flow in and out of the computer case just fine.
