Default Re: GPU fan always at 100%, can not change the thermal settings

I just installed the beta release 302.17 and the bug is still here (look at my video, in the first post): fan speed is maximum at xorg start (very noisy) and in nvidiasettings, I can not change change fan speed, despite I put the coolbitsettings to 4 in xorg.conf. If I try with command line, no error appeared but that does nothing.

$ nvidia-settings -q fans

1 Fan on tipingouin-home:0

    [0] tipingouin-home:0[fan:0] (Fan 0)

$ nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1

  Attribute 'GPUFanControlState' (tipingouin-home:0[gpu:0]) assigned value 1.

$ nvidia-settings -a [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed=30

  Attribute 'GPUCurrentFanSpeed' (tipingouin-home:0[fan:0]) assigned value 30.
but the fan speed is higher and didn't change.
This feature does not work anymore with my 8800 GT with drivers out after the 275.43 (works with 290.10 too).

Please help, my computer is too noisy with my fan GPU always at maximum.Without a solution from you, I have to use nouveau, but I'm a gamer and nouveau is bad to play 3D games.
Thanks for your help.
