As you can see now the temp is 61 but the problem is fan speed is 100% doesn't matter what is performance level.

nvidia-settings shows different performance levels

Performance level 0: gpu 169MHz/shader 338MHz/memory 100MHz/?V/?%
Performance level 1: gpu 275MHz/shader 550MHz/memory 301MHz/1.15V/100%
Performance level 2: gpu 475MHz/shader 950MHz/memory 702MHz/1.20V/100%

$ nvclock -F 70
Error: adjustment of the fanspeed isn't supported on your type of video card!

Looks like I will have to live with it
