Question EVGA GTX 260 216 - Fan speed stuck at 40% ?

I ran GPU-Z and had it log my temps etc. while playing L4D, After 30 minutes of playing my GTX 260's GPU temp reached 70C max, but I noticed the fan speed never changes? Its always at 40% / 1400RPM no matter what temp its at.

When I go to Adjust GPU settings in Nvidia control panel the GPU FAN is set on Auto control but when I choose Manual control it lets me adjust the % slider but when I click Apply it goes back to 40%.

Is this normal behavior or am I missing something. Is 70C even anything to worry about? (Idle temp is 49C)
