Yeah, MSI Afterburner makes it really, really simple to make a new fan profile. As soon as I installed my card it was the first thing I did. Now the card runs cooler and there actually isn't any more noise because ramping the fan up as the temp goes up, instead of waiting until it's too late like the default fan profile, actually keeps it from getting so hot that the thing jumps to really high speeds.
